New paintings!!! [Jul. 31st, 2003|09:12 pm]
Jasmine Becket-Griffith
I told you I was busy, hehehe....

"Among the Trees"

"A Snow Nymph"

Blah, my webhosting for www.strangeling.com is currently being maintenanced, so any images hosted there (and the splash page for my website) is currently down. How annoying.

OK - off to touch up a custom piece, wash my hair, answer 154 emails, pack (I'm leaving tomorrow morning - eek!), and take a walk with Matty =)

Thank you!!! I think snow is very pretty. Too cold for me though - that's why we moved down here to Florida, hehe.

I too love the Snow Nymph. She's absolutely lovely, and I love her stare.
The skin colors in "Among the Trees" was exceptionally good this time...I don't know if it just worked with the background or what. The painting itself is quite bright, and I like it as well. :)

I love "A Snow Nymph"! She is gorgeous! I love light colored hair! Not enough people paint light colored hair! The rosy tones on her cheeks, forehead, nose and ears is great! Just looking at her makes me feel the cold! I'm bidding but I won't win!

Hehe yeah i know. but snow's so pretty and fun! My favorite thing to do in the winter time is sit in a dark room and watch the snow fall outside. it's so peaceful. ^__^

Winter time is pretty much the only season i do like lol. I hate summer because i don't like the sun and the stupid HEAT! and i don't like spring and fall because it's always fucking raining lol. i despise rain. it brings back bad memories of having to walk to school in the pouring rain and being wet and cold for the rest of the day in my classes. i'm scarred for life LOL.

I LOVE rain!!! I like snow too, as long as I'm nice and cozy inside. I like sitting in a dark room watching the snof fall as well, although it often reminds me of death =\

Hey look, we found something different about us! LOL!

Reminds you of death? well that can't be very comforting. =/

Snow always reminds me of all things magical. =)

Well, I have lost several friends during really bad snowstorms. My friend Matt died of cancer during a blizzard, and my ex boyfriend was stabbed 17 times in the snow, and I saw his blood in the it, making a trail to where he finally just collapsed and died =( So snow doesn't remind me of happy things anymore...

Awe, i'm sorry you had all those horrible things happen to you in the winter time. =( now your mind has associated snow with pain and death, and that's just no good. =(

i have nothing but really happy memories, so that's probly one of the reasons i love it so much. plus i was born during a big snow storm, so that's probly why too. ;)

I have this theory that whatever season you're born in, it for some weird reason is your favorite one out of the four. it's weird, every single person i've met and asked has fit the profile.

I believe the same thing =) I was born November 22, so my favorite time of the year is right at the end of Fall =) That totally makes sense to me that you like snow!

I used to love snow. Especially when it meant not having to go to school and being able to go sledding and stuff. Then I'd come home and drink yummy hot chocolate with my mom by the fire... Those were the days. Do you think old age will feel like childhood?

i like the snow nymph a lot

hey there, i like the snow nymph she is cute with her whitish hair. I love snowflakes and wintery things even though I've never been in the snow, maybe one day. My favorite Christmas decor is white, silver, and blue stuff. I love snowmen a lot to. Me and my husband Sean just went to see Pirates of the Carribean. It was pretty funny and cool. I am really looking forward to seeing The lord of the Rings Return of the King. PARTY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I am ordering some anime elf ears and i am so excited, wouldn't you be=) Have a great trip and have fun at the wedding. Take care, Alison the blue twinkling star* I also liked Among the trees that's where i like to hang out ^-^

Re: i like the snow nymph a lot

Thank you!!!!

Having grown up in Missouri, we had plenty of time to experience the snow! My cheeks would always get very pink, not just from the cold but from "snowburn". Snowburn can be even worse than sunburn - the snow reflects the sun terribly and it burns and chaps your face (especially when sledding!).

I'm not sure what the meaning is behind her - I just started painting the sky (at first I was going to paint a rainy cloudy picture), and then I started to feel like it was winter-y in there. So, I went with the cold snow theme, and I made her cheeks pink because she is cold!

It turned out very beautiful!

Hey Faerieshine

Hi faerieshine, I just wanted to say I'm really sorry you've lost so many people in your life that really sucks. I would give you a hug if i could=( Iv'e been through a lot of junkie things in my life and it's been a tough road. It's cool, I think Iv'e learned a lot and grown a lot because i was willing to. I've talked to God about restoring my memories as to not cripple the way to the future. i feel like He is and it feels really good.I feel like i'm reliving my childhood to. I have 2 little boys ages 1 and 2 and i feel like I'm reliving through them. I am 27 and I love toys and cartoons and childrens books and being crazy like a kid and i strive to see through the mind of a child as much as i can and live there. I pray that God will restore your wintery memories and give you a new joy. Have a good day=) Alison the blue twinkling star*
