Good morning! [Feb. 13th, 2004|11:01 am]
Jasmine Becket-Griffith
Good morning!!!!!!!

I'm getting ready to paint! I'm working on a Fairy Dwelling and I am LOVING how it's turning out. The little faeries have a little home made out of sticks and roots and moss, augmented with little bits of trash and litter (broken glass, bits of ribbon, paper, etc.). It is so cute, and it's a HUGE 20"x16" with sooo much detail! I'll try to finish it today!

Boy faeries

Hi Jasmine,
Have you considered painting boy faeries?

Re: Boy faeries

Hmmm.... I just don't really picture boys as traditional faeries. Maybe I should try that sometime. For the most part though, I think maybe male "faeries" are more like goblins or something....

I've painted lots of boys & men for commissioned paintings, portraits, etc. but I haven't really incorporated a lot into my "original" pieces. I don't really enjoy painting them as much as females for some reason!

Re: Boy faeries

I totally understand. I seem to equate alot of men with goblins in my life! HA!
Besides, females are much more captivating.

Re: Boy faeries

I think it's because females just tend to look much more magical than males do.

WOW! I'm watching you paint and from what i can see, that definitly has to be the most detailed piece from you yet!! I can't waaaaait to see the whole shabam!!! ^-^

Hello.
I go to your site and watch you paint almost every day. And I just found out you have a LiveJournal.

I'm going to add you because I think you are fantastic.

I don't update my LiveJournal much... well not at all really, but my main journal is at DeadJournal, if you care to take a look.

I Love You! Lol!

Re:

Thank you for watching!!! And welcome to my LiveJournal!!! I post here several times a day usually (it's really my main source of socializing, lol), and I always update when I'm painting live on my webcam, and try to explain what I'm working on, etc. My LiveJournal is also the fastest way to ever get in touch with me if you have questions, suggestions, etc. =)

The painting is coming along great, its really is neat watching you paint. I love the little light in the window, really looks like someone actually tunred it on. You are very good with shading and lighting, it seems that its hard for people to figure out allot of times.

I thought about trying out a web cam and I wondered if people would want to watch me paint, but then me and my fiance basically live in our bedroom and im always in jamas and a robe with a bird on my shoulder, so I dont think I really want people to see that.

Maybe if I had a little area like you, but I like to stand and paint at my art easle. Im just a big lazy bum that paints and chats LOL!
