Queen Elizabeth Painting, Two ORIGINAL Drawings, ACEOs, and Bon Voyage again.... [Jul. 2nd, 2008|09:49 am]
Jasmine Becket-Griffith
Hi everyone!

After just getting home, it's hard to believe I'm leaving again in the morning. I normally would never schedule myself that hectically on purpose, but as the timing/date of the art class and of the 4th of July (duh!) are both out of my hands, that's just how it worked out this year. I've been busy though....

Some exciting stuff for today! I have my big original "Queen Elizabeth" painting up for a penny auction, I have two new original DRAWINGS (oswoa sized!), and and I also have a few brand new ACEO Cards as well!! This will be my last update for a few days. Please bid with confidence though - I'll be back in plenty of time before these auctions end, so there will be absolutely no delays!

First off is "Queen Elizabeth and the Lion" - some of you may have seen her before - she's one of the most magnificent Tudor style portraits I've done, and she was up in my eBay store, but as I'm streamlining my studio and preparing new original paintings for some conventions & art shows this fall (Dragon*Con & FaerieCon!), I thought I'd put her up for an eBay penny auction, so everybody can get a chance at her!

Also if the links do not appear to be clickable, simply copy & paste the full link text into the URL field of your browser!

"Queen Elizabeth and a Lion" is her name - being a bit of a history buff, I've long been obsessed with Tudor history and art, especially portraits of Queen Elizabeth I. She always wore the best clothes, and wasn't shy to pile on the jewelry! I've honoured her with this new, original painting - showing her in all of her splendor with a magnificent lion (a historical symbol of British royalty & the power of the monarchy, etc.). You'll see many tiny details in here, including several incarnations of the "Tudor Rose" (a symbol for the family's dynasty). This painting truly will bring an air of mystery, elegance, and history to any room. She is on a sturdy 16x20" masonite panel and already varnished, which means you can pretty much pop her into any open wood 16x20 frame you like, no glass needed. This original painting is up on eBay starting at just ONE PENNY with no reserve for a 10-Day auction ending the evening of Friday, July 11th at 7:00PM Central Time. You can see her below:

Next up - a brand new type of artwork from me - due to popular demand! So many of you (you know who you are!) have been requesting that I occasionally list original drawings or sketches in addition to my usual original paintings. So just to try it out - I thought I'd do a couple of lovely original drawings in the OSWOAâ„¢ size (4"x6"). These are ORIGINAL DRAWINGS, not prints of any kind. Both are pencil & charcoals on toned cardstock, are 4"x6" and are absolutely beautiful. When I was in France I spent a good deal of time drawing, and realized how much I enjoy it. So here we have a "To Love a Frog Drawing" and a "Persephone Drawing" - up on eBay for 10-Day auctions ending the evening of Friday, July 11th at 7:03PM & 7:06PM Central Time.

Now for the new ACEOs - for more info about ACEO cards, how I make them & what they are (basically tiny hand embellished one of a kind canvas prints, trading card sized and highly collectable), consult the individual auction descriptions - they are each one of a kind, hand-painted with accents by me, the artist, and are awesome! All are starting at a penny, with no reserve for ten-day auctions ending on the evening of Friday, July 11th 6:45PM - 6:56PM Central Time:



To see them ALL together visit the ACEO section of my store HERE!

Or individually:

Enjoy! See you in a few days, with new artwork of course!

Until next time...
