I love Santa Muerte... I've been fascinated by her for a while!
Good luck with the crazy and the shipping of books! I have these visions of you guys sitting in your living room surrounded by copies of your book, while the kitties climb all over them...
Thank you Annie! She's certainly an intriguing character.
Lol - honestly you're pretty close to the mark there! We've made several post office runs already today - and we're not even 1/3 of the way done (posty is closed now, of course). Craziness!
She is awesome! I'm going to want a print of her for sure. I really like your departures like this and the Alchemist, and last year's Day Of The Dead. They are interesting pieces.
Congrats on the book! I'll need to grab one of those too!
Thank you very much!
I like doing paintings like that from time to time =)
oooo, she is very stylie! very cool!
Thank you Vince! Coming from you, that means a lot =)
Not surprisingly Jasmine, this is one of my favourite things I've ever seen you do.Its wonderful-I really love it, and the colours just shine-you've made death look like candy:)
Good luck with the book orders, I don't envy you on that one:P
Thank you David - making death look like candy is my job, hehe.
you know i love this one! so freakin cool!
i was wondering about giving you guys a call this week before we come down, when might a good time be? i havent called yet cause i know you guys are so busy i dont want to be pesky :)
Did you make that icon? Can I steal it? :-)
Hi I am interested in purchasing your book but was wondering how much shipping would be to australia ??
OooOooo that painting is creepy cool!! =D
I'm excited your book is selling so well!!! That is brilliant!! ::bounce:: I reeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeally</b> want to buy one right NOW!!! Unfortunetly I'm going to have to wait until after Christmas though. I'm going to be scrimping and saving every penny so that I can afford to buy some decent presents for my family this year. ::sighs:: I hate being poor. But! i'm happy poor, so I'll shut up now. ;D
♥ ♥ ♥
>^___^< Thank you Jacey!!!!
No worries, I'll be sure to keep it in stock for a good long time so everybody gets a chance. I'm sure the ordering frenzy will die down a bit in the meantime and I can actually keep some in stock, lol.
HOLY WOW!!! That is uber detailed!!! I adore the shine of the beads!!! So very realistic. And very creepy!!! But in a good way!!!
I really gotta find the money to buy a copy of your book...
Thank you Dawn! I had a lot of fun painting all those details.....
congrats on all the book orders Jasmine!! Hope you and Matt remember to take a break and not stress yourselves out too much. :) Can't wait to get my book though!! ;) Take care!
Thank you so much, Mary!!!!! We're taking a short break right now (the Post Office is closed now anyways, hehe).
Totally! In Santa Muerte/Day of the Dead culture, death isn't supposed to be a scary thing - nothing wrong with getting some giggles out of it, hehe!
Thank you so much!
100,000? Why Not???
I am sure with a little cleverness they could amke fabulous couches...endtables...coffee tables...plant stands (watch out for the leaking pots though)...And the ocasional ottoman!!
and James complains about my stacks of Backer board and Clearbags...Hehehehehehehehe
Lol - I can't imagine how much room that would take - probably my whole first floor.....
We're already using boxes of books for desks and setting stuff on them.... =P
Oh man, you should see the UPS guy when he brings in my boxes of extra long mailing tubes (the 54" kind) I'm sure he thinks I'm nuts....
such vibrant colors! very nice job. :)
Man, I love your uber detailed pieces, it's like you can look at it and discover something new every time, so cool.
But this is even cooler!! your book!! yay :D
Almost a pity that your last painting isn't in there.
Congrats with selling out your books.
Thank you Miriam!! There's a lot of fun stuff in this painting - I kind of got "lost" in the details.....
This is definately a good one! The detail is lovely, it must have taken sooo long to paint it.
I like the cigs. If you look quikly, you think its one of those "Smoking kills" paintings.
Yay, today the post office will be open so you can start shifting those books. Just dont pack up on of your cats by mistake and ship him aswell :)
LOL - totally - I should license it to the "Don't Smoke" people, hehe. There's liquor and cards in there too - it could double as anti-drinking and gambling too.... ;P
Ha - Quan-Yin was trying to get inside one of the boxes, too......
I love it!! I love the Florida water sitting in there too! All those little details. I didn't know about Santa Muerte, so I'm totally being educated! So nice for October!
Thank you Neva!!!
YAY! You are the first person to recognize the Florida Water! I had a bottle of it by my painting desk, so I had to paint it in there somewhere.....
Well i looked at this one again this morning and the link worked.^_^
I don't know whats up with it..but im gunna find out *_*

Lol - a mystery to be sure!
Thank you Heather!

Your new picture is very cool too, very in season for Halloween!
Wow...make sure you take a break when you sign all of those books!
Cute neat intersting painting you got up. :)
Good luck with all the crazyness!
Hehe, I'm taking a short break now to catch up on emails since the Post Office is closed. At this rate I'm not going to be done shipping until probably Friday - it's taking forever!
I love Dia de los Muertos, it is traditional for our family to celebrate every year. We make our alters at a local gallery, we make"dead bread" (MMMMM, SO GOOD) and we dress up and dance and honor our dead. Such a beautiful painting, you captured the spirit perfectly! All the detail and the colors are right on! Thank you for the woderful tribute to this lessser known holiday!
Thank you Jenga!! It's one of the most beautiful and unique holidays (and not very well-known here in the States) - I could draw a constant source of inspiration from it.
Thank you again! >^___^
Jasmine, I know you are busy, but what is the difference between Santa Muerte and the Grim Reaper? Is she good or bad...I am having a streak of bad luck and need something to protect me from evil. Can you recommend something? Sharon....

Re: Santa Muerte?? Grim Reaper???
Hey Sharon! Emailed you ;)
Wow, "Santa Muerte" is a very beautiful painting. I just kept staring at it, soaking up the wonderful details.
Thank you so much! I had a lot of fun working on the little details and everything =)
"Santa Muerte" is a facinating piece! I can't think of a better artist to represent that hopeful and macabre saint. Congratulations on your book sales, that's just awesome. ;)
Thank you Beth!!!! >^__^<
Any house news yet?
Jasmine it's all sounding so wonderful!!!!!!!
