Rainbow of Bones [Jun. 7th, 2006|09:03 pm]
Jasmine Becket-Griffith
Kind of an odd painting, but it's pretty cool!

I finished it up - you can click the title below to see it:

"Rainbow of Bones"



Pretty, eh?

(And for those of you new to my journal, you can see my other currently available original paintings here:

http://stores.ebay.com/Strangelings-Art-Gallery_Jasmines-Originals

and my current SALE prints (this week only!) for sale here:

http://stores.ebay.com/Strangelings-Art-Gallery_SALE-ITEMS )

I'm still feeling kind of under the weather - sneezing, sore throat, coughing, etc. Blah. Much improved from the other day, but still not up to par. Drinking some Thera-Flu - seems to help.

Today Kachina, Eleanor & Theodore were off with Aunt Heather to the Animal Kingdom - they're off having dinner now. The house seems so quiet when they're not here! I will miss them so much when they go back home to Kansas City on Saturday =(

My husband Matt (kaokame) has been posting some vacation photos, etc. in his journal - I'll try to get some posted here when I have the time and energy!

I've been watching a lot of Futurama today - Kachina got me some of the DVDs for my birthday! I love that show. I also have been watching my Season Four DVD set of "Home Movies" (the Brendon Small cartoon) - one of my favourite shows of all time. When I'm home working I watch probably a dozen episodes of it a day, and have done so for months. It got cancelled after the fourth season and that really depresses me, a lot of people weren't really into it. Hmph.

I'd better go try to catch up on some emails or something like that - enjoy the new painting!

I was wondering how you pulled that combo off, when I was reading your description...LOL. I'd say you pulled it off splendidly!!! I love the contrast of the bright rainbow butterfly wings to the somber/skull background!!!

Futurama is my FAVOURITE show, I stay up late now just to watch it at 10:30 on cartoon network. My laptop is even named Bender. I am constantly quoting the show and no one ever gets it. My favourite quote right now is "I am gonna buy you SO MANY lizards!" when someone does something nice for me, because I saw the first Christmas episode the other day.

Sorry, I'm just thrilled that someone else is watching the show.

LOL - I love that line!!

I think my favourite line though is from the Atlanta/Atlantis episode where Fry asks "Why couldn't you have been the other kind of mermaid?" - hehehe...
