TWO new paintings, and "Target" store news! [Oct. 22nd, 2006|07:39 pm]
Jasmine Becket-Griffith
I have been a busy painter lately! I have one brand new original painting, and then a never-before-seen canvas print & sale print!

First off - if you have a "Target" or "SuperTarget" store near you - they now have some of my artwork licensed on Auto Accessories! I don't know what is available at all locations yet, but Matt just went to the SuperTarget by us here in Florida and he saw my "A Little Shy" painting available as a steering wheel cover. They are in the automotive department. So go buy some! ;)

Now here is the new original painting - just finished her tonight - she is a 16"x20" painting (acrylic on a sheet of canvas) - a very striking painting indeed - purples, blues & blacks - click below to see it:

"Violet Sometimes" ORIGINAL PAINTING



Next I have a new NEVER SEEN BEFORE #01 Limited Edition Hand Embellished Canvas print! The original painting was not one I sold publicly since it was a custom piece and it already has a happy home, but the canvas print is the next best thing. I am calling her "Purple Heart Princess" and she is a beautiful childlike fairy in a forest, holding a glowing purple heart - very cute. See her below:

"Purple Heart Princess" 8x10" Lt. Ed. CANVAS PRINT #01

I also have "Purple Heart Princess" available this week as a SALE print, for just $10.

Yesterday we went and saw "The Prestige" at the movie theatre! It was very good, I would highly recommend it. How could a movie featuring David Bowie as Nikola Tesla be bad?

Tomorrow I will mostly be working on commissioned work. I have some other new paintings in the works though, so we'll see.

Also - various new merchandise lines will be available soon - I will update asap on that too!

Now though I am going to go rest my eyes, my head is aching terribly today =/

I will have to check out your stuff at our Target, next time I'm there. Then I can *squee* like a fangirl and say "I KNOW HER!!!!"

Ahem...

I love both Violet Sometimes and Purple Heart Princess. They both have purple!!! ^^ I love the gothy feel of Violet...go figure. And Purple Heart is too cute!!!! Such contrasting feelings for such similar colors. ;P

Hey - you can't be a bigger dork than me - I like hanging out surreptitiously by my merchandise to see if anybody picks up my things or comments on them.

Can you tell I just bought some purple paints? I had avoided using purples for a long time because my scanner never truly scans purple properly. I have figured out how to colour correct it manually now though, so I am going all out on purple.

lol! yeah i am a cure fan. :)
the 'violet' part was an old handle i used to use and the 'sometimes', obviously from the cure song.

Have you seen the 3-d version of the movie yet? I'm antsy to go see it!

Thank you - I'm very excited. I shop at Target a lot, so it's really funny for me.
