New "Atlantis Mermaid" Original Triptych, and new Canvases.... [Apr. 7th, 2008|06:48 pm]
Jasmine Becket-Griffith
Hi everyone!

I have a new beautiful, very special painting for you - another amazing collaboration between myself (the artist) and my husband Matt (the framer/woodcrafter) - a stunning Renaissance altarpiece-style wooden triptych! Perhaps my best yet - as well as my largest in size - and definitely the most elaborately designed piece so far. It is a tribute to classical architecture - featuring a mermaid swimming through the (3-dimensional) ruins of ancient Atlantis! Also I have the #01 Lt. Ed. Canvas Prints for "Butterflies Galore," "Poisoned Apple," "Mermaid with Cephalopods" & "Alice and Friends" today.

"Atlantis Mermaid" is the new Original Painting - this almost looks like something you'd see in a Renaissance or Medieval art museum - much like an old altar piece. It is a "triptych" - which means that it is actually three paintings - this one is divided by copper/patina painted wooden and resin mouldings/frames (I painted them myself!) - a sort of "3 in 1" type of piece. Actually I guess this one has four panels, so it's a multi-tych. There are little architectural details - columns, a window, carved wooden classical sea monster-like architectural details, frames-within frames - very stunning indeed - that really evoke the ruins of Atlantis, crumbling below the ocean! The center panel features a painting of a beautiful dark haired mermaid, with schools of fish in the distance. On either side of her are classical columns and other architectural details. The two side panels each feature paintings of seahorses - very pretty - each set within their own 3-d frame-within-a-frames, set in painted stone walls. At the very bottom is a long horizontal wall that features more blue ocean, distant fish, and a pair of magnificent classical carved wooden sea monster details. The varying degrees of depth in this painting - either from actual wood, resin, framing, as well as from the depth of field of my own paintings within this piece really makes this piece special. My husband Matty custom handcrafted the panel & frame out of wood and resin! It is very lightweight wood and can easily be hung on any wall. It is quite large - 24" wide by 22" at the peak - and about .75" or so thick on the columns and carved wood & resin details. I am so happy I am able to create works like these, and by collaborating with my husband and his workshop, I truly have made my dream a reality. I am very proud of this painting. It really has to be seen in person to appreciate it! It is READY TO HANG and is really stunning, finished with a glossy varnish. "Atlantis Mermaid" is up in my eBay store where she will remain until purchased (otherwise she'll travel along with me to Dragon*Con!), and you can see her below:
