New artwork! [Aug. 14th, 2003|09:36 pm]
Jasmine Becket-Griffith
My thoughts go out to everybody affected by the blackouts - I know some of you guys might be without power right now =(

Even though eBay is completely dead right now (due to the blackouts and probably the computer virus problems too...) I still thought I'd list my new paintings tonight:

Poison Fairy #11 "Castor Bean"

Poison Fairy #12: "Stinging Nettle"

"Green Eyed Fae Drake"

you'll probably notice it by the time I get this posted but I think the last two are both linked to poison fairy #12. All of them are cute! :D

Hey Jas, you got ROBBED on the wizard painting! It was worth so much more =( But I guess you have all your new ones that should go for a lot now - they certainly deserve too.

Lol, I know man - I had like 20-some bidders "watching" it too - I was expecting it to get some last-minute bids on it, but of course there's that blackout and eBay was just dead all evening =P

It's a really cool javascript you can add to your auctions - you can get it from BaconButtie's auction tools here: http://tools.baconbuttie.co.uk/

Just click on the "Watchscript" info link =) It's neat!

It is awful! My parents went to New York city to visit my aunt and they called me saying that the metro they were on STOPPED mid tracks and everyone had to unload at the Emergency exit. Everyone thought it was another terrorist attack =\ I was worried SICK! Thankfully it is being fixed...

Yeah, I have a lot of bidders who live in the Northeast - a lot of collectors in New York in particular. The page views/hits on eBay are way down too. Hopefully everybody will have their power on soon! I'm just glad it didn't get this far south!

Thanks!!!

I paint on sheets of artist-primed cotton canvas - these here to be specific =) I use Creamcoat paints, which are very vibrant and extremely durable (it even works for painting furniture and stuff) so I don't need to seal it, but if asked I'll coat it with a satin or gloss finish if people prefer =)

I sell all of my pieces unframed, but I purposely choose standard sizes for my artwork (like 8"x10", 11"x14", 12"x16", 16"x20") so they can be easily framed. Since they are flat sheets, they pop right into the ready-made pre-matted frames available at Target, Michael's, Hobby Lobby, etc. that you can get for $5-$25 (that's what I do even, hehe). Lots of my customers just get them custom framed as well.

In the next couple of years I'm going to set up a frame shop after we buy a house and I'll hire kaokame (my husband Matt, who has had years of experience framing and managing frameshops) to work for me full-time so I can offer matted and framed paintings and prints on my website and on eBay. Or so goes the plan!
