New paintings =) [Sep. 8th, 2003|08:07 pm]
Jasmine Becket-Griffith
Ugh, now I think I'm coming down with a cold - geez, I go a couple of years without being sick once and then I get hit twice in one month....

I have put two new paintings up on eBay though! You can see them here:

"Red Eyed Beauty"

"Hiding in the Swamp"

Ok - I've moved the webcam to the living room while I touch up two commissions. After I've finished them I'll email the scans to the clients, and then I'm going to take it easy for the rest of the night =)

I love the red eyed beauty. I painted a fairy with red eyes over the weekend but yours puts mine to shame 100 times. Your so good with the eyes and hair.

Blah, I'm assuming it's a government lab-created virus trying to undermine the counter-culture, or something like that....

Here I've been bragging that I haven't been sick since I graduated, and then **BAM** I'm hit twice in a row...

Wow !! Both piece are so gorgeous !!!
The fairies look more mature for some reasons!
The swamp Fairy family makes me remember my
mother my sister and I !! ^_^ ( we all have long black
hair like that ! ^_- ) Too bad I already can't afford
that one ... >_<

Thank you! Hehe, yeah - I was trying to make her more "Grown Up" looking so people could tell that the little faeries were her babies, instead of her sisters or something, hehe. I'm trying to vary my faerie faces a little more too.....

I hope I feel better tomorrow, I felt groggly all day today. I just took some NyQuil, so maybe I'll wake up feeling all better.

Hey - tell your husband he is silly!!! That WAS him who called in the middle of the night last night and left the "TOAST TOAST TOAST" message, lol.

Thank you Kayti!

Hehe - that kitty is BeauJo (prounounced bo-jo) when he was little. He just showed up one day on Kachina's porch, only 3 or 4 weeks old - so tiny! We didn't think he would make it =( Kachina nursed him back to health though, and he proved us wrong! He grew up big and strong, and he gets pudgier every time I see him.....

Ah, I need to go to bed. I've been sick all day and I still worked myself into the ground making prints and packaging and shipping and stuff. Bleah. Now I have a mixture of NyQuil and Chloraseptic in my stomach and I need to sleep it off!!!

Jasmine! You take care of yourself! The world needs your art! You need to hire a secretary or something!

There must be some kind of virus going around on lj. I'm still sick, and my fever is back. It is rather odd I think.

Your sister is an angel. Obviously BeauJo was sent to her =) I've had many kitties sent to me that I took in and nursed back to health =) They have a way of finding people who love them I think...

I hope you feel better soon sweetie! I'll send healing vibes your way ;)
