"Amara" New Book Painting & Prints, Cameos, and PORTFOLIO ONE BOOK ORDERS HAVE SHIPPED! [Mar. 31st, 2008|02:48 pm]
Jasmine Becket-Griffith
It's so nice, I can open the living room windows now and get some air in here. I couldn't previously because MY HOUSE WAS FULL OF BOOKS! Seriously, it was crazy. We got in our stock of my Portfolio Volume I books on Friday, so this weekend Matt packed them all up to ship out today. It was such an amazing ordeal, I could describe it here but it would be unbelievable yet boring at the same time, lol. Suffice to say, most of yesterday I was signing books, believe me =P

So! Those of you who pre-ordered the book - your order is now on its way!

Those of you who haven't ordered yet - you are in luck because the book is now in stock and ready for immediate shipment - you can order it here: "Jasmine Becket-Griffith: Portfolio Volume I"

In more BOOK news - I have a brand new original painting to show you, it is one of my Book Illustration characters - Amara - a Polynesian Menehune! And she is FRAMED! I also have prints available of her as well, on SALE!

"Amara" is a CUTIE - she is the sixth character portait painting I've done for an upcoming book of short stories (previously there has been Alannah, Kitsune, Fiona, Bijou, and Nixie). Since it is a commissioned illustration due to be in an upcoming book, she is surely of special interest to collectors!. She really brings a refreshing and bright tropical feel just hanging up on my wall. This is a portrait of Amara, a Polynesian / Hawaiian type of fairy creature - also known as a Menehune - Amara is a name meaning "Paradise". She does live in a paradise, with a waterfall - bird of paradise plants, orchids, all kinds of tropical foliage. Menehune are often described as loving bananas and rainbows, so I have included them in this painting as well. "Amara" is an original acrylic painting, on a canvas panel and it has been framed in beautiful bamboo themed dark brown wood frame - particularly appropriate for the subject of this piece - kind of a tropical tiki feel to it. The panel is 16"x20" and framed she measures 19"x23". I have finished the painting with a glossy varnish and it looks amazing! This piece is 100% ready to hang on your wall. She is up for sale in my eBay store and you can see her here:
