Jasmine's New ORIGINALS! New Madonna Triptych, New I Vampiri: Il Liuto... [Mar. 15th, 2010|07:18 pm]
Jasmine Becket-Griffith
Hi everyone!

We're back from MegaCon! Thank you ALL who came out to see me! You guys helped make it our most fun and most successful MegaCon ever. Thank you all!

Tonight I have TWO new paintings to show you! One is a gorgeous original FOLDING wood triptych painting - "Madonna of the Shells" - up on eBay starting at a penny ( Matt has done a phenomenal job making the frame - you have to see it!), an the other one is the second in my Vampire series - "I Vampiri: Il Liuto"! Now, for those who were there - you probably saw these new originals -(I Vampiri: Il Liuto sold at the show, but I have prints available tonight!). I'll have some other new originals to show you as well, probably tomorrow, hehe.

To see ALL of my currently available original paintings on eBay, just click here:

All righty - first off - "Madonna of the Shells" is the title - this truly is another masterpiece collaboration between me & my husband Matt so far! For those art history buffs, this is a true FOLDING TRIPTYCH - done in the medieval altarpiece style. In the past, many churches would have folding altarpieces that they would unfold on Sundays or on holidays to display the painted interior. This is one done in high Gothic style - a solid poplar wood triptych (three paneled painting) first cut & carved by my lovely husband Matt - and then finished by me in an antiqued gold leaf finish. It is THREE original paintings in one - "Madonna of the Shells"- the classic image of the Madonna, blending the iconic style with the beauty of nature - specifically that of the sea! Beautiful seashells and corals are painted on the side panels. She has a lovely halo I did in gold leaf. Of course, I had to include my personal favourite of all the shells - the Nautilus - a perfect spiral symbolizing infinity. And yes indeed - the hinges are actual working hinges so you can leave it wide open, or at any angle of closure you'd like. We're very proud of this one! A whopping 21" high and about 18.5" wide when extended. All ready to hang - this can truly make your house look like a Gothic Cathedral or a fine art museum! Original acrylic painting on solid poplar wood with gold leaf and metal hinges. Matt has added a hanger on the back, so it is READY TO HANG! She's up for just ONE PENNY on eBay for a 10-day auction ending the evening of Thursday, March 25th at 6:00PM Central Time, and you can see her below:

Prints and posters of "Madonna of the Shells" are available in all sizes HERE

And now secondly - "I Vampiri: Il Liuto" - the second in my series of paintings called "I Vampiri" (which is Italian for The Vampires) - a new line of paintings that feature vampire beauties inspired by Italian Baroque & Italian Renaissance themes and aesthetics. This second painting is called "I Vampiri: Il Liuto" (which means "The Lute") and she is lovely! Subtle colours and clothing style have a sort of renaissance painting feel to it, and I just love the lute! If you look closely too, you'll see little tiny fangs on both the girl and the skull.... The original painting itself was 16x20 in size (an oval) but the original was SOLD at MegaCon, so she isn't available for purchase. However - lucky for all of use - I did take scans of her before the show started so I have PRINTS available immediately! BIG prints starting at $13.80 - you can get them in all different sizes, even up to 65"x52"! You can also choose paper options, matting, framing, etc. - all that is customizable. Just click this link to see:

Until next time...
