Couple of pictures! [Sep. 6th, 2007|10:43 am]
Jasmine Becket-Griffith
I had made four different outfits for Dragon*Con - each was a top made out of leaves, flowers, gems, & butterflies, along with layered skirts also decorated with leaves, etc.

The art show didn't allow cameras, and I didn't even think to get photos until the last day, so I just have pics of me in the last outfit. I'll probably wear the same ones at FaerieCon, and promise to get more pictures there!

Here are some pictures Matt took of me, showing off the top! And YES - those are dark contact lenses, those who know me know I really have light blue/green eyes, hehe.

And here I am wearing the skirt that matched it:

these were taken in our little hotel room, hehe, so we couldn't fit it all into one picture =P I didn't wear shoes most of the time, I don't like wearing shoes and prefer to be barefoot. Even at art shows =P

And Alex - I got my bellybutton pierced last December, hehe!

I took one more photo on the trip (lol, I know - I suck when it comes to remembering to take photos!) - at the rest area somewhere in Southern Georgia on the way back - there were beautiful mushrooms & fairy rings every where:

And then when we came back home to Florida there were mushrooms everywhere here too!!

Enough pictures, I'd better go get some more painting done! I'm finishing up the red dragon painting I started at Dragon*Con - those of you who came to my booth will know which one I mean =)

Hehe, thank you Del!!

I had a blue one, autumn one, and a green leafy one too!

I only saw Larry for a few minutes out on the street when we were loading up the trucks! Got some hugs and talked for a little while - he had a good show too =)

I got to see Kelly & Tammy a couple of times (they came to chat at my booth!), but I missed out on the meet-up (we were in the art show a lot longer and couldn't escape!).

Some day you will come to Dragon*Con too!!! I think you would do great!!!

There have been lots of good mushrooms here too. We went to Bluff Woods the other day in search of pawpaws (didn't find any of those, unfortunately) and kept seeing mushrooms. Amber and I saw a really good fairy ring the other day, too. Then last night Amber and I both saw a really, really good rainbow! She saw it at her gym and I saw it at Target but it sounds like the same one. I think that is good luck.

Beautiful photos. I love your outfit! I wish I could have made it to Dragon Con this year, but I've been worn out with the stuff going on with my mom. Maybe next year. A lot of my friends took photos and I've enjoyed those. Next best thing to getting to go is seeing the photos!

You looked so cute in all your little outfits. I wish I had gotten a picture of you and Matt =(

*cries* I want to go to FaerieCon sooo badly. I hope you guys have a great time. Take some pictures for me!

And it was really good to see you again, Jasmine. As I told Matt, hopefully we'll run into each other again before next Dragon*Con!

Hello...just wanted to take this chance...to say...congratulations...your talent is tremendous...your art is astounding...i just fell in love with it...

I was looking for pictures to put on my web page..and I discoverd your hindu fairy...and wanted to see more..and more...the big eyes is what got to me..at first. I have big eyes myself. Made me think of a picture i have of myself when i was about 3 years old. I browsed on your website, and i fell in haw. one after one. Truly amazing.

I do a lil art myself, but nothing compared to your talent..you are truly talented. Wanted to get a tatoo.but honestly and no pun intended for those who did..but for me would be taking away..from the magic of every stroke you put in your fairies..but they look marvelous..(the tattoos).

Wish you all the best..and long life to your endless talent...

Lovely pictures jasmine, i love the outfit!!
When i first saw them tho i was bit concerned, your eyes looked liked u were possessed or something lol Anyways, Love it!

I have a question, My sister is doing a multi media design program in college and she needs to design an online store. she wanted to know if she could design one for you. She would need information and 50 pictures of your paintings. This will be a non profitable thing unless you choose to by it off her. it will be your own online store ^_^ Anyways...get back to me asap :)

Thank you! >^__^<

She's welcome to use the images off of my website for her project (also if she could credit ©Jasmine Becket-Griffith).

However PLEASE be sure that it doesn't actually ever really end up online, hehe - that would confuse people!

You look wonderful like always!!!!! Been busy moving and settling in==took three weeks to get done and hardly sat down. Will send pictures. My goodness you have been so so so busy!!!! new art and lots and you are killing me but its a sensational killing!!!!!! You are so detailed -----more so and Matt is is certainly magic touch!!!! My computer is still loosing color and I don't know if I am making any mistakes writing you...if so---it would be kinda fun figuring what I wrote. I sure do miss you and your art....I sent a couple letters out to you through ebay...Now that I have my place, I can write more....I had some of my stuff stolen from my porch---I am too trusting but I had to move some stuff out so I can manuever around my new place since it is so small. One painting of yours got stolen!!!!!! One painting of my son's dolphins got stolen. My one other picture that is not famous so its okay i guess. None of my commissions were stolen!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! My Twilight painting is off centered so I am having the picture perfect guy come on out and recenter it since it is so heeavy and too big to move again---it just dropped a couple of times and loosened. Thank goodness I had plexi-glass instead of real glass===I figured it wouldn't be able to be picked up with real glass--anyhow. Good luck on my typing errors as I cannot see my words===they are all white. I should let you go and let my computer cool down so the color can come back for 30 minutes. Love ya Laura

Hi Laura!!!!!!! Miss you!!!!!!

I'll have to write you a proper letter soon - we've been so swamped!

OH my goodness - I can't believe people stole your things, what is wrong with them??? Eek - which painting of mine got stolen? That is awful!!

Faery Folk Alliance

The other that is not so famous is a little girl and little boy looking at each other I got from art.com I think that's the name of it and had it framed at the same place with matting.

And you know what???!!!! They left the three boxes there empty---well they all had my name on them--but I have inventory pictures of them all and I have written to the landlord and submitted them in hopes that if they inspect the apartments (aha--I live in Aurora housing--like section 8). Fingers crossed!!! One tenant next door to me said I should not have left them out for even a short while here--well yes--I was stupid--but wait til landlord or AHA inspects--who will look more stupid. No--I didn't tell her I have inventory taken...

Bye for now--all your work is so fantastic--I keep looking at the wolf picture with the girl standing next to him.....I want that painting!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! It would be installments but I would never be able to be a secure installment bcuz I still don't have secure position here yet. Just hoping I can snatch it up in time though before anyone does!!!!! Love ya Laura

Aw, poor Faery Folk Alliance! Whoever stole it, I'm sure they don't appreciate it, either. At least it was a print though, and not the original painting. Hey - if you let me know your address I can replace it for you!

Thank you Laura! "Wolf Countess" is one of my best, to be sure! No, no - I don't want you spending $$ on my art if you're still settling in, I'm sure you have better stuff to buy for your house, etc. =) Who knows - maybe she'll still be in my eBay store in another year or two.... ;)

Hi Jasmine!! Thank you....that is so nice of you to send me replacement!!! How about sending me the replacement when I get some money for some others I would like and its all in one roll shippment. Besides, I don't have the money now to frame it...so its best to wait. I would love to hurry to frame it but I like picking better frames when I have time to sit and enjoy doing so, too. Also, I need to select a frame shop close to me and choosing is a choosy thing for me because I like to go to one that likes to take the time and chat with me and have patience with the selections they have to offer....the one in Florida was sensational--they treated me like a human being and took their time and loved showing me different stuff and colors and actually complimented me on a good EYE or TASTE. Those kind of people are the best and they actually, genually cared on their perfection. They certainly got my business!!!!!!!!!!!!

And yes the Wolf Countess is so wonderful!!! I am drooling....the painting is like inviting me into it. "Stepping into the painting", or "having a conversation with the object in the painting-so to speak" says alot!!!!!!Love ya like always

wow, you look scary and yet pretty with the contacts and outfit haha.

Love the 'heksenkring'. That's what we call the ring of mushrooms. Literally it means 'ring of the witches' (witch = heks), haha.

We have so many mushrooms too atm. Love to see them popping up ^^
