New Leafy Sea Dragon Mermaid Painting!!!!! [Apr. 18th, 2006|09:02 pm]
Jasmine Becket-Griffith
Yay!

I finished a new painting - it's really big, long & skinny and really really cute....... click below to see it.....

"Leafy Sea Dragon"



Leafy Sea Dragons are real critters! Everytime I see them at zoos or aquariums, I think about how fantastical they look, so I decided to paint one =)

We're having a lot of fun with Daddy & Robin staying here. Last night they treated us to the Biergarten at Epcot - yum!

Right now Amber & Chris are over too - we're watching movies and ordering Chinese food. They're supposed to bring me some Mandarin Orange Tofu - sounds tasty.

I'd better go try to catch up on a few emails before they bring the food - enjoy the painting, everybody!

Thank you Tina! It's a fun size to work with - only problem is that I have to roll up the edges a lot since it's too wide for my desk....

So beautiful! She has a bit of a distressed look in her eyes... almost as if she's worried about being washed ashore.

I love it!! I love leafy sea horses!! Those are sooooo cool looking! Paul's work is having some kind of "thing" at the aquarium here next month, and we get to go in after hours I guess & can wander around. One of his co-workers's husband was in charge of the otters (he's an amazing expert--like been doing it over 20 years or something), but I think he's moved up to another level now...not so high stress I think (when the sea otter was pregnant, he was on 24 hour call & was at the aquarium most of the time just watching the otter and making sure everything was o.k. and then when the baby was born he was there even MORE).
