Back home again, new Sale prints, CILM pack, Pre-Raphaelite Sotheby's Auction (drool....) [Jul. 10th, 2008|10:29 am]
Jasmine Becket-Griffith
I'm back home!

Home for a good long while this time =) I had a fantastic time visiting my family!

We had a great 4th of July - first a big brunch picnic with my mom's family (me, Matt, Kachina, Theo, Ellie, Mom, Bill, Sally, Daniel, Amber, Chris, Aunt Laurie, Uncle Ben, Aunt Hilda, Uncle Bill, etc.). Ate breakfast, played baseball, etc.

Then we up at my dad's farm in Missouri. Me, Matt, Amber, Chris, Kachina, Eleanor, Theodore, Daddy, Robin, Sonya, Paul, Paul's parents, Grandma Griffith, Grandma Dale, Aunt Lisa, Uncle Kevin, Ariel & Josh, Reed & Debbie, Colin & Matthew, lots of dogs & more. We had so much food (vegetarian bbq!), and did the traditional 4th of July festivities (shooting rifles and phenomenal amounts of fireworks!). That night we camped in tents out on my dad's land, which was a lot of fun. Went to the arboretum, ate ice cream.

We then went back to Kansas and stayed with Amber & Chris for the rest of the trip. We got to spend lots of time with them and Kachina & the kids. We all went with Matt's mom, his sister Sarah & our niece Cielo to Deanna Rose and to the movies (where oddly enough we watched this movie, had lots of fun. We did lots of other stuff too, it's all a blur!

It's good to be home now for awhile though - I've been gone for weeks it seems. I'll be here painting my hands off for the next 7 weeks straight, preparing for this fall's conventions - Dragon*Con and FaerieCon. For more information regarding these upcoming art shows (I'll be there with tons of artwork, and I'll be painting "live"!), visit my appearances section here: Jasmine's Art Shows & Appearances

I haven't been able to check LiveJournal for the past few weeks, so if anybody has anything important to tell me - just tell me here, I'm too behind to catch up! We're slowly working through the 1000+ emails too, bear with us.

Gah, I'm sure some of you might be interested (to drool over at least) in this auction (not mine - LOL I wish!) coming up on the 15th in London at Sotheby's. This is one of the BEST private collections of artwork I've ever seen up for auction, anywhere. I want it all! There are COUNTLESS Alma Tademas, Rosettis, Waterhouses, Grimshaws, Pre-Raphaelite, Edwardian, Victorian original paintings. Waterhouse's "Tristan and Isolde" for heaven's sake (shouldn't that be in a museum somewhere?). Check it out:

Click HERE to see one of the coolest Sotheby's Art Auctions I've ever seen Seriously - it makes my head spin! I want them all!

Now on the more low-brow art front..... as of today all orders placed & paid for while I was out of town are now SHIPPED! I've got some fantastic paintings in the works, but for now I wanted to let you all know that I have a TON of brand new SALE prints (all of my new ones!) up on eBay, as well as a new CILM graphics pack!

And to see my current original paintings & drawings, just visit my "Originals" section of my store here

That's all for now .....

Thank you Steven!

It's good to have a paintbrush in my hands again though =)

Today I painted a piece inspired by the landscape around the Alphonse de Lamartine estate we visited! I'll post it after I scan it in - that was such a gorgeous valley.

I'm glad to hear you had such a great time!

I had completely forgotten that version of Sleeping Beauty existed.. oh man. That's totally memories for me. It came out the year I was born, ha.

I'm so envious of that auction. Ug. Tristan and Isolde? That's incredible!!!

It's a freaky movie, hehe. The same company made a "Rumpelstiltskin" movie around that same time, I watched it when I was little too.

Rosettis, Waterhouses, Grimshaws and the Pre-Raphaelite are some ofmy fave's ever. I nearly cried when I saw the real things in London.

Lots has happened on livejournal while you were away. Del is gone for one.

It's crazy that they are all privately owned like that. If I won the lottery I'd buy them up and display them in a public gallery or something...

I was actually with Del in France for a big part of the time I've been gone. We had a lot of fun, but she's going through some hard times right now, hopefully we'll hear from her soon.

beautiful fairies

Hi I have been a fan of you and your art for a few years now. I placed a link to your site on my site. Maybe one day I can buy one of your paintings. Have you ever painted with oils?

Re: beautiful fairies

Awesome, thank you so much!

I tinker with oils now and then - I did this one in oils last year:


Mostly though I stick with acrylics - I try to keep things non-toxic, and like being able to have a piece dry within minutes of completion (since I mostly end up sending them through the mail, etc.!).

Sounds like you had a great trip! I'm not in London on the 15th, I'm back visiting the family that day, how annoying, ha!
Also, I just started my summer job at a crystal shop and we sell a bunch of your little fairy figurines. I saw your name on one of the little cards propped up infront of the display when I was retrieving a pendulum today!
