TWO New Original Paintings - Book Illustration! [Feb. 12th, 2009|08:03 pm]
Jasmine Becket-Griffith
Hi everyone!

Two new originals tonight! First I have one of my original FRAMED "Book Illustration" paintings up (a rainforest fairy named "Lela"), and then I have a CUTE little grumbly-kin fairy called "Grumpy Red Fairy".

As you may know, I'm illustrating a book of short stories. It's a daunting task requiring dozens of illustrations (you've seen some, "Alannah," "Amara," "Kitsune," "Bijou," "Fiona," "Nixie," "Poe," and "Willow" so far) but luckily I'm able to offer this piece and the subsequent paintings for sale along the way, so be on the lookout for more soon. The book will not be out for quite some time, but I will let you know when it is published, too.

"Lela" is her name - a portrait of one of the characters. She is somewhat of an artist, living in a rain forest - beautiful flowers, frogs and other brightly coloured snippets of nature fill her life. A beautiful girl too, with big lovely eyes and a tropical waterfall in the distance.Since she will be published, she is certainly of special interest to collectors. And guess what - she is FRAMED! She's on a masonite panel and it has been framed in an open wood "distressed" frame! The distressed natural wood frame really suits the tropical/rainforest feel of this piece.. I have finished the painting with a glossy varnish and it looks amazing! This piece is 100% ready to hang on your wall. The panel is 11"x14" and framed she measures a large 15"x18". This original painting is up in my eBay store at a fixed price until she is sold (or else she's coming with me to MegaCon!). Or of course, feel free to use eBay's "Make Offer" option to make me your best offer, I always consider all offers! You can see her below:

Next up is "Grumpy Red Fairy" - lol - the name says it all! She may be grumpy, but she sure is cute! When I started painting her I started giggling, I think she's trying to look fierce, but it's just not working. The black & red colour combination is very striking - I love it. She's an original acrylic painting on 2" deep cradled masonite - READY TO HANG (no frame needed, gallery-style!). This original painting is up on eBay starting at just ONE PENNY with no reserve for a 7-Day auction ending the evening of Wednesday, February 18th at 6:00PM CENTRAL TIME You can see her below:
