White Oleander.... [Aug. 12th, 2003|08:18 pm]
Jasmine Becket-Griffith
I finished my Poison Fairy #10 =) I had received so many emails about my Poison Fairy series (an older series of small acrylic paintings featuring poisonous plants and their fairy protectors - some of you might not remember them - http://www.strangeling.com/poisonfairy1.jpg
http://www.strangeling.com/poisonfairy2.jpg
http://www.strangeling.com/poisonfairy3.jpg
http://www.strangeling.com/poisonfairy4.jpg

The new piece is called White Oleander and can be found here on eBay:

I've begun work on Poison Fairy #11: Castor Bean =) I keep getting flashbacks to when I lived in Kansas City and painted my old Poison Fairies... It's weird...

I'm going to play some Dark Age of Camelot now! Since Matt works tomorrow, Thursday, Friday, Saturday, Sunday and then he'll be off cavorting with thedonkdonk (my sister's husband and Matt's good friend, hehe!) while he's in Florida next Monday-Friday, and then he works the whole weekend straight through, I'll be getting an insane amount of both painting and website-updating soon! I will post my webcam link as soon as I begin painting again tomorrow =)

Thank you! Ah, I love silver hair. I tried to put silver streaks in mine a while back (using bleach and some "silver" dye) and it looked pretty good for about two days, and then it faded to white. Everybody kept calling me "skunky", lol.

I can't tell from the old ones you included (there weren't any titles) if you had a deadly nightshade fairy included.

I think it would be a fantastic addition, I love the unique purple and yellow flowers with the green and red berries.

Plus the stuff is insideous - it grows everywhere in the midwest, you can't get rid of the stuff! ;)

I think she is one of my new favorites too :). I liked looking at your old paintings to- it is neat to see how some of your painting techniques have changed. Are you going to be putting up a gallery of your old work?

I really should put up a gallery of my older work! Hehe, my website is going to eventually be a sprawling monster of a gallery! One of these days I'm going to scan in some of my really old pieces - like from when I was in middle school or high school!!!
