Lots of new artwork stuff...... [Mar. 26th, 2006|10:15 pm]
Jasmine Becket-Griffith
Thank you all for your kind words about my little Quan-Yin. I apologize in advance if I'm a little unresponsive for the next few days, this is a difficult time for me.

Now for the art.... I have a lot of new stuff for you all. A BIG new painting, some new canvas prints, a BUNCH of ACEO cards & some SALE prints.

First of all, I have a brand new painting! When I was at Larry Elmore's artists retreat in Kentucky last week I did a great landscape sketch and decided to build a painting around it. The result turned into "Red Dragon" - a gorgeous new piece featuring a fairy with red dragonling wings and a beautiful red dragon in a detailed landscape. I'm very proud of it - it is quite large - 16"x20" (acrylic painting on cotton canvas sheet) and very detailed - and very delicately painted - I'm very proud of this one!

It is up for a 7 day auction starting at just one penny, ending on the evening of Sunday April 2nd at 9:40 PM Central Time and you can see her here:

"Red Dragon"



I have been working very hard on some new hand-accented Limited Edition canvas prints! I have finished the number #01 Limited Edition hand-embellished prints for my "Persephone," "Moth Queen", and "White Zinfandel" paintings. Since these are each the first of their edition, numbered #01/25, I am going to auction them starting at one penny, with no reserve and no "Buy-It-Now" since I know a lot of collectors like owning the first of each edition, and I want to make sure everybody has the opportunity to bid =)

"Persephone" CANVAS PRINT #01

"Moth Queen: Acherontia Atropos" CANVAS PRINT #01

& "White Zinfandel" CANVAS PRINT #01

Next up are the ACEO cards!! To jump straight to my ACEO store and see them all together, click below:

Hi Jasmine, I'm so sorry to hear about your precious cat. Made me cry to read that. I'm sending wishes that you get to feeling better soon.

I couldn't wait to see what you'd paint after coming back from your retreat! Red Dragon is beautiful, I love the landscape! You've got to be one of the hardest workers I know, you're such an inspiration with everything you accomplish! You're fabulous Jasmine! - Greta =D

I love the girl in "Red Dragon". She is really lovely :) And wonderful job with the background! I have never been good with them so I really admire those that are.

I have been thinking about you, Matt, and Azrael. Lots of hugs your way.

I'm so sorry about Quan-Yin. I just lost my dog Elky (well, it was three months+ ago, but it still hurts a lot) I'm here if you need to talk. I've also found that Petloss.com was very helpful for me. *hugs you*

My eye is often drawn to the landscape in the background. Nice to see it get the attention it deserves ! It adds much to the painting. Would like to eventually see them on their own, as well, when you have the time to focus on a few different lines of work.

Red Dragon is very vibrant and intriguing. Very nice work! I agree with your first poster, you must be a machine! You work so hard and you are such a motivation to me to work harder.
I am very sorry to read about the loss of you and Matt's cat. (((HUGS))) to you both.

I'm glad you mentioned the artist's retreat again; would you be interested in doing a little write up on your experience for the EBSQ zine? We could publish as soon as April if you had the time, but May would be lovely too, if you're interested.

And know that Quan-Yin has been in our thoughts, as have you and Matty. We went through this last summer (and the two summers before) and I have so many hugs reserved just for you whenever you need them.

May might be good! Could you email me to remind me?

Thank you Amie - I know that you would understand how it is =)
