Artfulness [Jun. 27th, 2003|12:15 pm]
Jasmine Becket-Griffith
Soooo... I got a lot of painting done yesterday/very early today. I finished a 14"x18" piece called "Red Sky at Night" which features a demon-ish looking (but still kawaii) faerie type girl in front of a gorgeous red sky with a castle in the background.

I'm in the middle of working on my new piece - "The Chosen One" which is kind of inspired by the Hindu illustrations (like in the Bhagavad-Gita), with smoothly rendered dewey-eyed animals, etc. So far I've got the blue skinned (indicating holiness in the Hindu artistic symbolism) girl in the center (presumably the chosen one) being nuzzled by an adorable cow. There are two normal looking girls at her side, maybe looking a little jealous. It's kind of an unusual concept - I'm not sure if it will fly with a lot of my usual bidders/fans, but it's something I really wanted to paint =) You can see my progress here</i> on my webcam - it's already set up. I'm going to make some lunch now, but I'll be back painting shortly.

I can see your hindu painting-it looks so beautiful! I kinda hope that the usuals don't want it so I can have a grab at it...heehee. Seriously though- it looks like it is going to turn out amazing. I love reading hindu & buddhist stories & myths so I am really excited to see this painting.

The last peek I had at it - it looked very interesting! :-D I can hardly wait to see it... or what you'll come up with next!

Sigh - I almost can't wait for the kiddies to be in school so I can make more art........
