Painting! [Jan. 13th, 2004|02:10 pm]
Jasmine Becket-Griffith
Getting ready to paint - not sure what yet though, lol!

You can watch me here!!!

Today I went and (after months on the waiting list) my PO Box - yay!

Tonight I need to go buy a bunch of art supplies - I'm running so low on everything - eek! I'm going to pick up a canvas for erikasfriends's commission too ;)

OOOH OOOH - what did Erika commission?! (I figure Erika will eventually read the comments and answer for herself if Jasmine is uncomfy doing so)

YAY!!!!

Bwahahahahaa inquiring minds want to know! It's a portrait of a little girl named "Erica", not me since I spell mine "EriKa". She is now 15 but the one Jasmine is painting is age 5 I think.

I don't mind you showing the piece on your cam and/or LJ Jasmine, I'm proud of it!

Re: YAY!!!!

I'm keeping the portrait since the little brat hasn't contacted me in 2 years even though I gave her a book of stamps lazy lazy lazy! Someday I'll give it to her when I think she will definitely take care of it ;) She's probably been mad at me because I would not let her move in with us lol! I like to "visit" with kids not live them hehehe

i know and it was awesome....and if i get that apartment that i love - it will look beautiful in there:-) bradley has not contacted me yet and i had to know by tonight so i am going to hopefully wait till about 7 pm and then call the guy and tell him that i can take the apartment...that is what brad's mom said and she agreed when i described it to her that it sounded more like something he would like.

Hey thanks for the books! I love them! They are very cool!

Do you remember when you referred me to someone to do a couple of portraits ? I can't find the link anymore and wanted to look at her stuff again. I can't for the life of me remember her name!

Oh yes! If I remember correctly you were looking for kind of a cartoon/pop-art type thing? (If I'm confusing that with something else I apologize!) - I think my fellow artist Tori might be good for what you're looking for - she's actually on LiveJournal too: twistedbunny =) http://www.twistedbunny.com/

Or just browse through my friends at EBSQ - all of these folks here ( http://www.ebsqart.com/Members_cmd_c_Members.htm ) take on commissions =)

Re: Question =)

That's where I am so very thankful - I really don't make mistakes when I paint (not to sound arrogant) - I think that's how I'm able to paint so quickly. I basically think of an idea, and then my hand just kind of does the work for me. Sometimes I don't even look down at my canvas for a long while, and then check down to make sure it's coming along nicely, lol.

BUT - I do sometimes do stupid things like squirt a bottle of paint out all over the place, or knock my paint water cup over, and then I DO cuss up a storm!!!!!!!!!!
