I'm back! With art & stuff...... [Jul. 1st, 2008|09:07 am]
Jasmine Becket-Griffith
Hi everyone!

I'm back from my art trip to France! I had a WONDERFUL time! I learned a lot and had a lot of fun. Over the next few weeks you will surely see a lot of new artwork from me inspired by my trip. I'm still getting settled in (jet lag!) and surely I'll do a much better post about my trip later, hopefully with photos, etc. I had so much fun, even better than our last class there! Larry is awesome as always, and of course my good friends Delphine (zerick) and Steven (virtualcardsuk) were there, which was wonderful, and my other great friends (Tammy, Chad, Kelly, Donna, Gonzague) and new friends (Tom, Jeff, Cedric & Jason) and others of course. I finally got to go see the Louvre, and am already planning to go back to spend much more time there.

Today I have a bunch of my new (and old!) paintings available as #01 Canvas Prints up for auction. Since I'm now home - all of you who ordered signed & personalized works while I was gone - I've now signed & personalized everything and they are going out today! Also - another head's up - I'll be out of town shortly (again!) - this time just visiting my family for Independence Day, so I've included some important ordering info below.

Again - I will be leaving for Kansas City soon (even though I just got home!)! Don't worry - as long as you have paid for any orders/auctions by noon tomorrow (the 2nd), I will still ship before I go, otherwise everything will ship after I get back home on June 8th. My eBay store is going "on pause" (ie, the store items & framed originals have "disappeared" but will "reappear" when I get home!) - everything will be back to normal when I come home. You can still place orders on my website while I'm gone - please just remember they will ship after I get back home. In the meantime, I will be listing many new eBay auctions (including these new canvas prints) over the next 2-3 days, so feel free to bid on all of those as usual, as they'll be ending after I'm home with no delay!

The new Lt. Ed. #01/25 Hand Embellished Canvas Prints are now up for auction for several of my paintings - Belle of Bonaventure, Swamp Blossom, Pug Pixie, Lamenting the Forgotten, Wings of the Night, Fairy Group Portrait II, Shell Collector, Phoenix Tattoo, Armful of Frogs, & Dorothy in the Poppies - each is up for a 10-day auction on eBay starting at just a penny with NO reserve - the auctions will be ending on the evening of Thursday, July 10th at 5:24 - 7:01 PM Central Time. Again - I will be home in time to ship these out promptly, so there should be no delays - feel free to bid as usual! Click the links below to see the new canvas prints:

To see all of them together, just visit my store here (scroll DOWN past the "I'm on Vacation" disclaimer, hehe!)

Wowww the Louvre. I got to see that one too someday :D
So cool to hear the trip was nice. Maybe someday I would love to do a course like that too. But first I need to start painting again. I am mainly painting dolls right now, haha.
I am eager to see your France inspired paintings.
I loved the ones from last year too. It's cool to recognize the french country. I have had loads of holidays in France when I was a kid ^^

Good luck with the jetlag!

The Louvre was so cool, it was like every art museum I've loved all poured together into one place, and then multiplied X100.

The French countryside is so beautiful, there is an unusual and lovely quality to the light there like nowhere else I've been. Definitely - I have so many new painting ideas queued up, as soon as I'm back from Kansas I'll be pumping out the new art! =)

Hurray! This is your second time doing that,right? France is awesome! Where do you stay when you are there? Did you stay in Paris?

Yep, it's our second retreat there. Had a blast, even more fun than last time!

For the bulk of the trip we stay at the Moulin Madame, owned by our friend Gonzague - http://www.moulinmadame.com/ - a lovely stone chateau built in the 1400s. It's fantastic because we basically have the whole place to ourselves when we stay there, with the staff (friends really) plying us with wine and chocolate croissants and cheeseboards the whole time, hehe. It's in Burgundy, in the countryside chockfull of medieval villages, castles, vineyards, cathedrals and lots of great ice cream =)

Then for the last day or two we stayed in Paris, doing all the fun city stuff!! Paris is probably tied with London for my favourite city right now, I could spend ages in either one and never get bored!

Holy crap! That place you stayed is SOOOOOOOOO COOL!! That's it! Next time I'm going! hee hee!! Larry won't be TOO mad that I can't paint right? hee hee! My poor painting skills would just make the rest of you look even BETTER! see...it's kind of HELPFUL to have someone who can't paint go along! ha!
