How cool! [Jan. 30th, 2004|04:10 pm]
Jasmine Becket-Griffith
One of my very old paintings is up for re-sale on eBay! From when I was in college (if I remember correctly it's a nude I did in a figure study class, and then painted over to make her more like a fairy, hehe).

It's my "Crouching Fairy" -

A very rare piece - made before I had a real scanner so I've never offered her as a print!

Re:

Hehe, must need money! One of my best figure pieces. Hey - if you win her can you take a scan of her for me? I just have a crappy little low-res picture of her, and I'd love to have a print of her for myself ;)

It's interesting seeing one of your early works. You've grown so much as an artist. I really love your work :-)

Re: Crouching Fairy

This one was actually from school, where we had live models and figure books and stuff to work from, so it's one of my best anatomically. This one I believe was from a live model, and we had her in the middle of the class with a dramatic light shining on her!

I went in later and changed the face and added a suggestion of wings, hehe.

I think you should try to win it back - I know if it were MY work, looking at the quality of it, I would definately want it back! =)

Also - what ever happened with the other old piece you thought about buying back for yourself on eBay? =)

Re:

Hehe, maybe I'll swoop in and bid.... Nah, I probably shouldn't. Well, maybe....

Oh yes! I got that one back, and one other the same guy had. Those were two pieces I really rather liked, and I emailed the guy and we ended up doing a trade! Now I've got two of my old originals - I'm going to frame them and keep them for my own!!!

Crouching Fairy

Hi everybody! I'm wyldgal, the one on ebay selling this painting and believe me- I HATE having to sell it...but when you need money you've got to do what you've got to do :( It's SO beautiful and I've got a certain sense of pride owning a little peice of Jasmine. I for one hopes Jasmine bids and wins- I'd LOVE to turn around and buy a print of it off her afterwards *LOL* How crazy and circular is that?! Anyways- those of you bidding, good luck and Jasmine when I make it rich and famous I'll be buying those originals from you once again!
