New Paintings!!! [Sep. 21st, 2003|08:39 pm]
Jasmine Becket-Griffith
I have two new paintings!

The large one I finished yesterday is called "Earth Faeries" - it's pretty darned cool, and you can see it here!

I finished a new painting - a smaller one, but also featuring multiple faeries. One of them looks kinda like my sister Amber (I didn't mean it to at first, it just turned out that way, lol). It's called "Guided by Faeries" - you can see it here

OK - I'm off to answer some email and play some Dark Age of Camelot!

Hehe, yeah - I should have just called it "Smirking Baby Bird", but nobody would have got it....

I actually started painting it to look like me, and then I decided that it was starting to look too much like my "Smirking Faerie" (in my icon) and changed it around. Then, it started looking like you (which makes sense, since our faces look a lot a like) so I made her have blue eyes, reddish hair and curvy mouth, and voila - looks kinda like Amber!

I wonder if you can tell how much I like the earth faeries by the number of bids I've placed so far ;)

Awwwww =) Laugh, maybe it's because I'm extra picky AND frugal, lol. But seriously, all your work is bid-deserving, even if I have to pinch my pennies to try to win the ones I love the best =) Earth faeries is just so cool! It would make a great book cover or something like that!

Amazing work-the large is without doubt the most accomplished thing I've seen you do. I personally would love to see more of this type of work from you-definate shades of Froud in the composition there-I can see why you'd hate to part with it. I feel the same about my latest work. Having to make money sucks sometimes doesn't it.

I love the Earth Fairies! It's great how you made them all look unique, the one with the short silver hair is so cute! You should do more like her sometime :) I also like the one in green in the upper right corner, because she looks voluptuous, hehe ^_^ Guided by Faeries has some nice colors in it, and it's cool how her face is more realistic and the little fairies are your usual style.

Ooh, I LOVE that wicked looking fairy in the lower corner with the super-elongated face! She looks like she'd bite your ankles. Very cool paintings. You're making me want to paint!

"Earth Faeries"

STUNNING!!!

I LOVE this piece Jasmine...it's almost "Cybillesque" with the alter ego like faeries (my opinion of course) I keep looking for a wee boy faerie to appear...lol...apropos I think.

Keep up the fabulous work!

Bwah. Everyone else has already swooned and awed, but I had to say those were very exciting to see... I spent a good while studying the expressions in both paintings. Very nice.
