New stuff, stuff & stuff..... [Jan. 23rd, 2006|10:16 pm]
Jasmine Becket-Griffith
Today for lunch Matt & I went to Cafe d'Antonio - we had a gift certificate there from Heather's dad - I love that restaurant! I got the Involtini de Melanzane, as I usually do (it's a stuffed eggplant - very yummy). After that we came home and I've been working as usual. It was nice to go out today - very hot though, I think it got into the mid 80s.

Tomorrow my mom & stepfather will be here! They're staying with us for a week. It is always nice having guests stay here, even when I have to work a lot =)

I didn't get a chance to post about my latest painting yesterday - but here it is now....the 12th installment in my Alice in Wonderland series......

"Alice and the Pig" ORIGINAL PAINTING



She's up in my eBay store at a fixed price, but hey - you are all always welcome to use eBay's "Submit Best Offer" option if you're feeling lucky! ;)

Next up is a new book! Well, new for me to keep in stock at least - it came out last year, but I just now got it in stock =) It is called The World of Faery - it's one of the most beautiful fairy books I've ever seen, not to mention I have a couple of pages in it, hehe. It is presented by Alan Lee (you may know him from the Froud & Lee book "Faeries"), and features myself and several other faery painters like Amy Brown, Josephine Wall, James Browne, Paulina Stuckey-Cassidy, Jessica Galbreth, and several others - it's a wonderful book, and I have autographed copies of it below....

"The World of Faery" HARDCOVER AUTOGRAPHED BOOKS

Next up is the #01 numbered limited edition hand embellished canvas print for "Red Tailed Mermaid:"

"Red Tailed Mermaid" #01/25 Lt. Ed. CANVAS Print

She's also available in the open edition photo prints on SALE this week: "Red Tailed Mermaid" 8x10 $10 SALE & "Red Tailed Mermaid" 12x16 $20 SALE

And then here come the MINI PAINTINGS - I'm sure at least some, if not all, of them have sold already - I apologize in advance. They tend to go fast! Grab one if you can though:

"Green Hair, Green Eyes" MINI PAINTING

& "A Wary Glance" MINI PAINTING

& "Daisy in My Hair" MINI PAINTING

& "A Hint of Pink Magic" MINI PAINTING

Okay! Enough work for now =) I'm going to fix some dinner while Matt cleans up the house to prepare it for our houseguests tomorrow!

Jas -- As always, your new piece looks fabulous.

My parents are visiting soon -- they drove down from Ontario, through NC, SC, and Virginia, and are now spending some time exploring Florida -- they went to St Augustine, and Daytona Beach, and will soon be staying with us in our new Southern home for about a week -- I'm really looking forward to it. Have not seen them since September.

Have fun with your company, too :-)

Alice and her piggy

The new Alice painting is super Jasmine - now I have another print to purchase to make my collection complete. It's an agreeable predicament. Thanks for continuing to keep your Alice fans in mind. Any idea when the fan collection photo page will be updated? I'm dying to see the photos I sent appear there.

Re: Alice and her piggy

Thank you Jim!!!

Don't worry - I have your photos on file waiting =) I will probably be updating the site in the next week or two - it's kind of crazy around here, very busy & family staying with us, etc. =)

Alice painting is cute, like her face, she's got sweeter as you've been drawing alice paintings, yes I understand what you mean with loving to have guests but being busy, i have a friend visiting and i'm expecting her to come but also very concerned because I virutally won't have time till march! :)
greetings to you and yours

I don't know you, but I must remark that your omelette recipe sounds so very delicious! I need to make one of them for myself. Yum! :-)
