I finished her!! [May. 3rd, 2006|08:16 pm]
Jasmine Becket-Griffith
And she turned out beautifully, click below to see her:

"Black Winged Angel"



She's even prettier "in person"!

Also - not a NEW painting, but one from a couple years back - she's re-surfaced and is being re-sold by one of my collectors - "Red Winged Fairy!" One of my more popular prints, she's on lots of merchandise, she's been published in my "Fairy" book, she's a great painting. Now, this isn't my auction, but I can verify that it is indeed the original and is being sold by the original buyer - and she's had it GORGEOUSLY framed too - click below to see the auction:

"Red Winged Fairy" ORIGINAL up for auction again

Next up I have the #01 Lt. Ed. Hand Embellished CANVAS print for Queen Arachne:

"Queen Arachne" Lt. Ed. CANVAS Print

and she's also available as this week's SALE open edition prints:

"Queen Arachne" 8x10 $10 SALE PRINT

& "Queen Arachne" 12x16 $20 SALE PRINT

Enjoy the new art, everybody!

Lovely colours Jasmine-aren't angel wings a nightmare to do? All those feathers. I really love the little black jeweled bodice thing she has, please do more of that, its very original.

Thank you David! Oh my goodness - they certainly do take longer than a regular butterfly wing!

Thank you - I painted a similar dress in "Queen of Insects" - it's an interesting texture and I think it might work its way into more of my paintings.....

Thank you Harmony! It's funny you mentioned that - this time I actually sat down and picked the paint tubes out ahead of time, checking them next to each other before I even began painting. I've never done that before!

Wow, Jasmine! She is absolutely beautiful! I am definatley buying a print of her as soon as they are available! I love her expression and the dress, and the background is a very nice contrast. I love going into Hot Topic with my friends and seeing your merchandise everywhere and being able to say "That's Jasmine's art. She is amazing. I have loved her for 5 years now. :D"

Permission for Tattoo Idea

Hello. I was interested in using one of your paintings as a tattoo idea. What further actions do I need to take? Enjoy your vacation... Thanks in advance.

Re: Permission for Tattoo Idea

Hi Carrie!!

Oh my goodness! That is fabulous! You are more than welcome to print the picture off of my website to bring to the tattoo parlour with you =)

All I ask is that you send me a photo when you're finished (JasmineToad@aol.com) - I'd love to put it up on my Tattoo Photo Page: http://www.strangeling.com/fairytattoos.html

Thank you very much! I'm always flattered to know that somebody likes my artwork enough to get a tattoo =)
