Three new paintings, mailing list stuff...... [Jul. 25th, 2006|08:08 pm]
Jasmine Becket-Griffith
Hey everybody!

I have been so busy painting this week, and I have three amazing new original paintings to show you. One is a regular eBay listing, and the other two are something extra special....

That first painting is posted up on eBay - she is the rosy delicate piece I've been working on.....

"Pale Rose" ORIGINAL PAINTING



Isn't she lovely?

Next up are TWO very special paintings. These are very special because they are already FRAMED. Yes, yes, after oh - 7 years of constant requests, I'm going to be offering the occasional framed original painting (and maybe some prints too, but I'm starting off with originals). My husband Matt, before he worked as my assistant, was once a professional framer so he does a fabulous job. These two original paintings are actually intended to be shown at Dragon*Con in Atlanta in September, but I thought that first I would offer them to you guys in my eBay store, just to be fair. If they are not sold in the next month, they will be taken to be sold at Dragon*Con. Each is an acrylic painting on a stretched oval canvas, and each has a beautiful "open wood" oval frame measuring 11"x13". I have also hand varnished the paintings to provide extra protection. These are 100% ready-to-hang - just stick them up on a nail on the wall, and you are good to go! Like I said - these are up in my eBay store for a month (so grab one if you want one, otherwise they're going to Atlanta)...click below to see them:

"A Dear Frog" FRAMED ORIGINAL PAINTING



"Me and my Red Dragon" FRAMED ORIGINAL PAINTING



In other news - I'm upgrading my mailing list to a fancier, more efficient, and more appropriate system via AOL Groups. Until now, I've basically been just bulk emailing everybody and maintaining the mailing list myself. There are well over 10,000 people on my email mailing list now, and it is getting very difficult to maintain myself. Also when I do it myself it is difficult to verify the "opt-in" process and somebody keeps reporting it as spam, and I have to keep calling AOL's customer service each night, lol.

SO - what does this mean to you already on the list? Not much! Basically it just means that you will (sometime today or tomorrow) receive an email that says something like "Hey, just click this link to stay on the mailing list" or something like that. So be on the lookout for it in your email box, and for heaven's sake - please click the link! It'll be painless and easy and simple, I promise. Also it will make it easier if people want to leave the mailing list, etc. So again - when you get the AOL groups thingy, just follow the short instructions and we will be all good =)

All right then, I hope you all enjoy the paintings! It is so neat to see my artwork framed like that - this is the first time I've ever offered framed paintings. I almost want to keep them for myself....

Good night all! Off to go figure out this mailing list stuff.....

Beautiful job on the framing!
You're going to do great at Dragon Con. You'll wonder why you haven't been going for years. (You should think about Gen Con, too)

Thank you Dawn! It was neat seeing my artwork all framed - usually that doesn't happen until after somebody buys it, hehe.

They're all so beautiful, and those frames are awesome! I wondered why you have been so quiet the past few days. I should have known you had something up your sleeve--hehe! ;-)

Thank you Toni!!

This next month I'm going to be doing nothing but paint. I have so many pieces I need to do for Dragon*Con. It's funny - I had to send them a list with titles & prices of the paintings I'm going to bring, and I haven't even painted them yet, so I made up a bunch of names - no idea what they look like yet, lol.

Thank you Heather!!!

Hey - congratulations to you guys - I hope it turns out!

Faces take the most work - probably just years of practice I guess =)

I really adore that Pale Rose painting. It is so delicate and sweet. Her hair looks like pink satin. Very nice. :)

Thank you Kelly! I have so many paints in the lighter shades that I rarely use, this was fun to do.

Awesome Work

I was looking at Alice in Wonderlanf Pics & I got to your page by one of your Alice pics. I was totally amazed in your paintings & that you also use acrylic as well. I am also a painter & I use acrylic too, I don't use oil paint at all, but you are an unique artist & one of your paintings reminds me of my fav artist Mary Engelbreit style. Your style in art is really beautiful & you are sooo talented, best with everything in the years to come.

Sincerly, Synthrose

Re: Awesome Work

Hello Synthrose! Thank you so very very much!!

I do use acrylics almost exclusively - they are my favourite medium to work in.

Oh! I like Mary Engelbreits colours a lot!
