Beautiful new DRAGON Painting - from my FRANCE trip! [May. 30th, 2007|08:52 pm]
Jasmine Becket-Griffith
It has been pretty crazy around here trying to get caught up after my class in France. Whew!

I have finally had time though to finish a new painting - it turned out REALLY well, and being inspired by my trip to France it has a French title - "Dragon D’arc-en-ciel" (Rainbow Dragon). My art class visited a medieval village atop a hill in the Burgundy region and we had a picnic at a scenic overlook - we discussed the landscape extensively, so I decided to incorporate it into this painting. A lovely dark maiden is standing on top of a hill overlooking a scenic countryside valley - with a magnificent dark dragon with rainbow accents at her side. I am so proud of this painting, it is truly one of my best to date. So much detail!!


Click HERE to see my "Dragon D’arc-en-ciel" ORIGINAL PAINTING!



To see any OTHER available originals, just visit my Original Paintings section of my store here.

I'm slowly uploading and sorting through the photos from my trip. Don't worry - I will do a proper photo post with a trip synopsis soon, when I settle down a little, hehe.

Here's a photo of me & Larry (both looking a little grumpy, but we were really having lots of fun) at the picnic place that inspired my new dragon painting. It was so beautiful there!!



More photos surely to come.... but for now, I need some rest! Enjoy, everybody!

I love the dragon :) The background reminds me of the view over the Somerset levels from Glastonbury Tor.

It might sound a bit weird, but in that picture you look like a younger Lorelai Gilmore. But then, I'm a big Gilmore Girls fan, so I tend to see Lorelai in lots of people, methinks. Still, your resemblance to her is very striking.

Hey there! I'm not familiar with her, so I googled some pictures of her - she's very pretty, so I'll take that as a compliment =)
