New Painting! [Oct. 23rd, 2005|07:41 pm]
Jasmine Becket-Griffith
Just a quick update.... I have another new painting! I just started painting a sunset, and this is what came out.....

"Fairy at Sunset"



All right! Now I get to take the rest of the evening off ;)

Alex & Flash go home tomorrow, and I want to make sure I get to spend the evening with them!

Hope all is well! I'm sorry I haven't been too talkative here at LiveJournal & email this week - on top of having houseguests I've been insanely busy, but pretty soon I should be back in normal form.

Hurricane Wilma is on the way, we're getting some rain now - I don't think she's going to be affecting us much more than that though. We'll see..... we dis-assembled the gazebo in our back yard, just in case!

G'night all!

Fantastic painting, Jas! I love the beautiful background colours!

We caught the tail end of Katrina, as did the patio table umbrella, which shot up, through the table, shattering it into millions of tiny fragments. As we say in England...arse.

Thank you Adam!!!

We put all of our patio furniture in the garage, and dis-assembled our gazebo and put that out in the garage too, just in case. But in the end we just got a little wind and rain, not even any branches down. Which is a very good thing!

Hey there. Was just wondering if you've ever done a gothy fairy wedding scene before? It sounded like a cool idea but I figured you may have already thought of it yourself.

Hi Jasmine,

The new painting is really cute.

I wanted to say be careful, I know Hurricane Wilma is heading your way. I hope you don't get anything major in your area. Be careful o.k.

Have a good night.

Thank you Sandra! We were lucky, we didn't get hard at all. To be honest it wasn't much more than a regular rainstorm (I almost feel silly having put our lawn furniture & gazebo out in the garage, lol).

hey jasmine, where all the books you recently shipped to england have been at the same time? Because my friend has had a book delivered already, only ordering a few days before me.. an there no sign of mine yet! lol!

Almost all of them were shipped at the same time =) However, if it was a customer who *also* had an order ready to go out at the same time for an original painting or something like that, their order would have gone via AirMail (since they would have paid for the additional shipping costs with the painting) which would get it quicker than those "just books" orders which are going surface mail (hope that makes sense!). Whene you've gotten the email saying that the book has shipped, that means about 4 weeks or so via Surface Mail.

And of course, sometimes the Customs Office will hold or inspect a package for a lot longer than other packages, for no discernable reason =P

Oh! That's from several years ago (I think I was still in school actually, hehe - that's an old one!) - it was a painting I did of a Naga - a winged snake girl. It was pretty cool! It was back before I started keeping big scans of my artwork so I don't have prints of it available, and I've long since sold it =(
