Wolf Manor - wow, this one is really pretty! =) [Jul. 18th, 2007|10:17 pm]
Jasmine Becket-Griffith
Paint, paint, paint...

I have a wonderful new ORIGINAL painting for you! Truly one of my best, this one is simply gorgeous. (The CANVAS prints are available of her already!). She is one of my "showpiece" paintings and the original is FRAMED and ready-to-hang! (I also have prints of her & also a re-listed MINI painting from another seller).

The new painting is one of the best paintings I've ever done, I can't stop looking at it! It is called "Wolf Manor" - and she is simply stunning! It features a gorgeous vampire-like winged girl with an amazing black & gold dress - she is standing on a magnifcent staircase and she has two enormous wolf friends with her. I'm not sure if she's a vampire or a werewolf or an elegant faerie creature - it's up to you! And it is FRAMED & READY TO HANG - an amazing antiqued gothic frame that is gorgeous in person, and HUGE! 26.5"x31" framed, this piece would bring a whole room to life. Since this is a special painting, framed, highly detailed, ready-to-hang, and such - she is going up in my eBay store gallery at a fixed price where she will remain until purchased - otherwise she will be travelling with me as one of my "showpieces" to the fall conventions of Dragon*Con & FaerieCon! You can see her below:

She's one of those paintings that make me think "wow, I painted this myself?", lol.

And for those who aren't in the market for the original, Canvas PRINTS of "Wolf Manor" are also now available! First are the Hand Embellished Limited Edition Canvas prints (signed, numbered, and hand painted with embellishments on a sheet of 11x14" canvas):

Click HERE for the "Wolf Manor" Hand Embellished 11"x14"Lt. Ed. CANVAS Prints (Limited to only 25)

Open edition "sale" prints of her will be available within the next week or two =) After I get back from visiting my cousins in London!

And also - a collector has had to re-sell one of my mini paintings. This is not my auction, but I can happily vouch that this is the original painting from the original customer, so bid with confidence:

"Lavender Spring" 3x5 ORIGINAL MINI PAINTING

I have more paintings in the works - I'll probably post a few more before I leave next week.... hope everybody is enjoying their week!

Whoa, definitely one of your finest paintings! The staircase is wonderful, the perspective is just perfect, it must have taken you forever to paint!

Thank you Michelle!

It did take forever, hehe. It took me ten times as long to paint the background/staircase as it did the lady & the wolves!

Either way I'd be happy - I really want to show off at Dragon*Con (I promised some customers I'd bring more wolves this year, hehe, and they'll be looking for them!).

WOW. Amazing background. The figures are of course amazing as usual, but this must have been a difficult background to do and it needs some attention of its own ;-) The figures are beautiful, you do such an amazing job on wolves, and the woman's dress and wings and face are all beautifully done. Did your wolf piece sell at Dragon*Con last year, the little red riding hood one I think? Are you going to do a wolf painting for Dragon*Con every year? :-D

Thank you Amanda! Lol - I spent about 10x as long on the background than I did the figures, it WAS hard.

I painted Red Riding Hood last winter, so that was after Dragon*Con, so it wasn't that one. I did sell "A Wolfish Friend" though!

I actually have two wolf paintings I'm bringing to Dragon*Con - the other one (not quite finished on that one) has a BUNCH of wolves in it!

Thank you so much!

That took a lot of work, hehe - I'm much better at organic things like people & animals. But I'm forcing myself to do more straight lines, perspective, architecture etc. - I'm getting better =)

GORGEOUS!! I really cannot get over the wonderful interiors you paint! I really wish I had a better eye for painting architecture. I have so many photos from my travels, but I just don't know how to translate them very well yet.

On another note, I have a painting with two wolves for D*C, too! It looks nothing like yours of course, I just thought it was interesting:) I was inspired to paint them after watching the movie "Blood & Chocolate" last month!

XOXOXOXOXOXO!!!!!!!!!

I started painting on 16x20 canvases for D*C, and I haven't scanned any of them yet. I have a few paintings sitting here that need to be done. I never really learned how to scan bigger pieces properly, so Jeremy is going to go scan them for me:) I'll probably end posting several at one time. Anyway, it's all white/grey. I went with the Arctic Wolf look.

I thought the movie was what it was. It was pretty to look at though:)

XOXO!!

I've got another big wolf one too called "Raised by Wolves" which has got a BUNCH of wolves in it, for Dragon*Con too - I will be posting that one soon as well.

Cool!! I bet it will be gorgeous as well. Your wolves look so good!

P.S. Have fun in London! That's a fun place to go! I seem to remember you visiting there a while back! It really makes me miss traveling...

XOXO!!

NO?! Oh, I thought you had. Maybe we just LJed about it, and you mentioned the places you'd like to see. For some reason I thought you already went. It seems like we talked about The National Gallery. If that wasn't you, then ignore me! I probably can't remember who it was.

Well, I hope you get to play tourist! National Gallery, Dali Museum, London Eye, Big Ben, etc.:)

XOXOXO!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Nope, not me!

I am going to the National Gallery, the National Portrait Gallery, and the Tate Britain, assuming I can squeeze everything in.

Hello

Hello Jasmine. I just wanted to tell you that I think you are very talented and your work is absolutely fabulous. I have yet to buy some of your work, but they are still great nonetheless. So, anyway, I hope one day you will come to Birmingham in England, it'd be wonderful. Anyway, good luck for the future and your paintings. Chou.
