Cretaceous Mermaid - WARNING: Here there be Sea Monsters..... also new Drawings & Wolf Pack...... [Jul. 31st, 2008|07:41 pm]
Jasmine Becket-Griffith
Hi everyone!

I have been doing a lot of paintings lately! You can't see them though (nyah nyah nyah) because they're for Dragon*Con. All I can say is this will be the Best Dragon*Con Ever :) And for those of you not coming to see me there at the Art Show, no worries, I'll post pics when I get home of course online.

I do have one AWESOME big new painting tonight up for auction though for you now (It has a mermaid AND dinosaurs in it, beat that!!), as well as a couple of new original DRAWINGS (oswoa sized - Sea Star and A Pumpkin Gift). Also I have a new "Wolf Pack" sale (basically three wolf prints together for a sale price!). Very cool stuff!

First off is "Cretaceous Mermaid" - a glorious painting - all READY TO HANG - no framing needed. Big too - 24" high by 18" wide. I'm the first to admit it, I'm a big dinosaur/paleontology nerd, and made this painting for the sheer pleasure of it. The Cretaceous Period would have been a very perilous time for mermaids. Feisty mosasaurs, plesiosaurs, all the fantastic marine reptiles that I adore (yet they terrify my husband, who is creeped out by this piece, hehe!). Throwing geological science out the window for once (hey, it's FANTASY right? And yes, I know technically these are prehistoric marine reptiles, not techincally dinosaurs either, blah!) I've included a gorgeous dark haired mermaid with these perilous monsters of the deep. Scary critters, and pretty ones too, like one of my personal favourites -a nautilus! It is an original acrylic painting on GALLERY STYLE CRADLED MASONITE - Matt has added a hanger on the back, so it is READY TO HANG! No frame needed! Basically it's like masonite, but with deep wooden sides, known as "gallery style." Of course you can always add a frame if you want (gallery profile), but she looks awesome by herself too. I've painted the wooden sides a glossy black, so it looks pretty sharp. This really is a lovely painting - and she is up on eBay starting at just ONE PENNY with no reserve for a 7-Day auction ending the evening of Thursday, August 7th at 6:25PM Central Time. You can see her below - click on the little picture to see the whole thing with details:

Next up - due to popular demand - a couple more lovely original drawing in the OSWOA™ size (4"x6"). These are ORIGINAL DRAWINGS, not a prints of any kind. Each is pencil & charcoals on toned cardstock, is 4"x6" and is absolutely beautiful. Here we have "Sea Star Drawing" and my "A Pumpkin Gift Drawing" - both up on eBay for a 7-Day auctions - one ending the evening of Wednesday, August 6th at 6:00PM Central Time and the other is ending a day after that, on Thursday, August 7th at 6:00PM Central Time.
