Work day =) - New Alice! [May. 23rd, 2003|11:22 am]
Jasmine Becket-Griffith
I'm getting ready to ship things off at the Post Office - I've been making prints all day!

I stayed up until after three last night painting! I finished my watercolour (I like how she turned out!), and two miniature paintings. The miniature paintings are so tiny - I used my littlest brushes! They are 3"x4" and can go in little photo frames =) It was nice to recycle my canvas scraps! Since they are so little, I don't imagine they will go for as much as my usual pieces on eBay, so it might give more people a chance to win an original! All of the pieces I've been saving up will be listed on Sunday night (so they won't end while I'm in KC!).

Today I'll be working on a new Alice in Wonderland piece - "Alice and the White Rabbit"! After I get back from the Post Office I'll get everything set up and post my webcam link =)

Isn't recycling fun? I just love it. I actually bought little frames for some of my minis so I can hang them up, lol. I'll sell some eventually!

Alice and the White Rabbit! JOY! That will be beautiful! You get to paint a nifty pocketwatch! You really are very good at painting any kind of metal. It always looks like it is shining =)

Thank you!!! I love painting shiny things - I do most of my paintings in dozens of "layers" and metal things often have the most "layers" and I have too much fun with them =)

Re:

Layers, huh? So that is your secret!!!;) Hehe, like I could ever accomplish that with paint. I'll leave painting up to the experts like you Jinx and Carrie, lol. A pencil just likes me better I think. Besides, I just won a set of 120 prismas on eBay for $70.00 total! MAN am I excited..=)

Hey - that's a great price for a 120 set!

I might have some coloured pencil pieces soon too - while we're out of town during the next week or so I'll probably bring a drawing tablet and some pencils with me, so I don't go crazy from lack of art production =) I don't know if I'll finish anything to sell, or just doodle =)

They are so small (they're little sweethearts though!)- I'll probably offer the Buy-It-Now for $35 or $40. I'll post links here in my journal when I list them on Sunday!

They are two little tiny faerie girls - one is green, and the other more naturally coloured. So tiny!

Hello Jasmine, I wanted to thank you personally for the complment you paid to my girlfriend (la_lune) about my mermaid art. I think your work is really lovely,and I'm extremely impressed with both, how prolific you are and your whole set up.

Anyway, thank you again, you're very talented and very kind.

David
