These are probably my two favorite ever. The detail on the hair in the first one is amazing and I love art nouveau. :)

I have to tell you I'm liking the "attitude girls" but I'm also excited to see your no-so 3D piece because the image reminds me of your older piece..Ophelia and the other pieces back then. LOL I'm talking like it's 5 years ago huh? Was it last year? I love the sepia on the Nymph. I think she's my favorite of the portrait style pieces so far.

Thank you =)
She does remind me of Ophelia a bit! I think she was early 2000, so she'd be about 3 years old - it does seem a lot longer ago!

(For those of you who don't know Ophelia - she's here: http://www.strangeling.com/ophelia.jpg )

How LOVERLY! I am lovin' your more realistic cartoon-ish girls. They look so beautiful. And the hair, *GASP!* is the best you've done yet (I think!!). The Art Nouveau piece really makes me feel better - I'm not the only one with fifty million styles! ;) You are such an inspiration to us all, Jasmine.

"Nymph With Antlers" is breathtaking! I love the sepia! Her hair is great! And I love the look in her eyes! Wonderful! =)

"A Faerie with Lavender" is wonderful as well! Very different for you, or at least what I'm use to seeing you do since I just "discovered" you a short time ago. I love her hair! She reminds me of you - remember the picture you posted of the blond you? =)

Wow! I love your "Nymph With Antlers"! I've got to learn how you do that where you paint with all shades of the same color. "A Faerie with Lavender" is so pretty. It kinda reminds me of my own work with the black outlines you used :)

Oh I love the antler nymph! She looks just like my cousin Kimmy, lol. I like how in this new style everything is realistic but the eyes are still large and expressive! The art nouveau is cool too, it must be hard to do the black lines in paint!

The nymph is so beautiful. Have you been reading Charles de'Lint? It reminded me of one of his stories so much, Moonheart. I'd love to see your impression of the crow girls from Someplace to be Flying and Rothwindle from Memory and Dream if you do read his books. You are an incredible artists, I am intensely jealous.

Hi Claire!

Nope - haven't read any Charles de'Lint yet - sounds very interesting though!

I love your work but I think this is one of my favorites.I love the attitude.I'm thinking I better buy something pretty soon because someday you'll be famous and then I won't be able to afford any of your work, (hmm have to kick the moths out of my wallet and see if I can now).
