I am a PAINTING MACHINE [Apr. 27th, 2006|09:22 pm]
Jasmine Becket-Griffith
Yep, not a person, but a painting machine.

And this new one is REALLY cool!

A new absinthe themed painting from me (I've done a couple of absinthe themed paintings, but just felt inclined to paint another today....)....click below to see her......

"Eyes of Absinthe"



How cool is that? I did a mini painting yesterday that had green-on-green eyes, so I thought I'd incorporate it into a BIG painting today.

Speaking of mini paintings - I apologize to those of you who missed all the mini paintings I listed last night! I know that they all sold out, no need to send me grumpy emails =P Don't worry, I will definitely paint more, as long as people want them, lol.

In the meantime, one of my collectors is offering up one of my mini paintings from last year up for sale again, so if you need an immediate "mini fix" you can check out her auction here:

"A Single Green Orb"

(again, it's not my auction but I will happily verify that this is indeed the ORIGINAL mini painting! Go bid, it starts at only $20!)

Wow - all this and I finished before 10pm - not bad! Now I get to go watch the UFC Ultimate Fighter (mixed martial arts) show with Amber & Chris who should be here shortly.

Good night all!

She's lovely! I love how you've been doing eyes lately, something about the way you're doing them really makes them stand out. :)

Thank you Jess! I really like "jewel tones" - deep greens, blues & reds, etc.

My favorite mini from yesterday was the green-eyed fairy. :-)
"Eyes of Absinthe" is gorgeous. She looks like she has a secret that you can only know if you drink the absinthe with her and become inebriated as she is. Very clever! I bet this new painting would be a good companion to "Nepenthe" based on its rich color scheme.

Thank you very much!

I agree - I think she and Nepenthe might be sisters......

Oh!!! Thank you so so much!!! This is fabulous!!!

I'll have to take a closer look - I also notice at the top left in the first picture there is my "Guardian of a Forgotten Temple" too -



I should go double check and see what all prints they ordered from me, hehe. Which episode were the screenshots from?

A couple days ago they sent me a Superman card in the mail that was signed by the cast and crew, thanking me!

"Void" 5x17
It is basically "Flatliners" meets Smallville, with Lana Lang in the lead.

I took a guess at the top left one, but yese it is most certainly Guardian of a Forgotten Temple!
I so saw the Atlantis one. It did take three watchings for me to catch it. I was pretty sure it would be in this chick's room... cause they made her "Goth"

Okay, I have the photoshop file, if you can use it. I will stuffit in a Zip and send it to you. Though I could just send you the images without the circles.... let me know what you want. I have a few more of that scene, but this is those are the clearest ones.
