New Painting! [Apr. 20th, 2006|08:02 pm]
Jasmine Becket-Griffith
I was in a monochromatic mood today, so this is my new painting....

"Red Horned Fairy"



Daddy & Robin drove down to Key Largo today - they'll stop back here though in a few days. Yesterday we went with them to Wekiva Springs State Park -

here's a link - it's very very pretty and only a short drive from here:

We went on a loooong hike through the woods and around the lake, and then we went canoeing (it is a great place to canoe!). We saw lots of turtles and alligators (no, believe it or not, it's not that scary to canoe with alligators - they don't like to bother people). Lots of fun!

Bleaaah - I will probably be doing a big website update soon. I have so many new prints to add - it's crazy. I might do a big painting (like, a giant one) before that though - we'll see....

I'd better go hit some emails, enjoy the new painting!

Ooooo pretty painting, I love the red!! I grew up in Florida, with my parents taking us camping everywhere. I've canoed with alligators, snakes, all sorts of creepy things near. They always ignored us as long as we didn't bother them.

Thank you Becca!

I remember when I moved here everybody kept saying - "Watch out for alligators" - and then I get here and they are all over the place, but mostly just little cute babies, hehe.

Lovely! I have a weakness for castles.

Hehe. Alligators are no problem... I'd be more worried about the pythons people dump in those swamps. ^_~

Hello!
Just dropping by to let you know how wonderful I think your work is, I discovered some of your prints and stickers in a shop in Leeds (UK) and was immediately captivated. I have a love of all things fairy, and your fairies are so cute! I look forward to seeing more of your work.
Be Happy!
Zoe

Lovin the work!

Hey! I just stumbled upon your work while mindlessly looking on google 4 college, and then spent 1/2 AN HOUR lookin at your site!!! I find your paintings REALLY inspiring and am even thinking of getting a tattoo of one! My faves are POPPY GARDEN (y know, coz me name is Poppy!) and ALICE AND THE CARDS because i am doing a project on Alice In Wonderland at the mo. I have also visited your town a few times while on vacation, such a fairytale...! ur very lucky.

well thought i would just say how much i LOVE your work, and i would also like 2 stress that i am soo not a stalker, just a new and hyper fan!

p.s as soon as i get some money i am totally gonna buy the book, and i've already entered the comp 2 win a print!

love from Popz xxx xxx xxx
