New PAINTING!!!!!!!!! [Feb. 13th, 2004|09:43 pm]
Jasmine Becket-Griffith
I finished it! I love it!!!

It features a strange faery dwelling indeed. These faeries must live relatively close to a human-infested environment, since they have incorporated various pieces of litter and trash into the construction. Faeries don't really know any better - they just thought that they were pretty and shiny materials to use. If you look closely you can see the remnant of a Starbucks styrofoam cup, and a broken Heineken bottle that they seem to be using to collect rainwater. There are pretty flowers and jewels hung up alongside bottle caps and soda-pop can pulltabs.

Here it is:

Fairy Dwelling #1: "UnderHill"

Now, I'm dragging myself away from my computer and my painting table to eat some dinner! I haven't had anything all day, I've been so busy!!! =)

Hehe, I'm not sure! I usually keep all of my series "open ended" so I can just paint more whenever it strikes my fancy =)

FAVORITE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Although I know it will be gone in a heartbeat, you should have BIN for this piece! I love when you take so much time to do an amazing background. I desperately want to move in with these two, but I fear I am a little too large! LOL They are the size of a bottle of beer for goodness sake!

Re:

Hehe - that's one of the fun things about putting "normal" mundane objects in there - you can see the scale, and how tiny they are!!!

Yeah, I set the BIN at $1,000 but since of course I started bidding at a penny it disappeared pretty quickly, hehe.

Oh, that's so great! The detail is astounding. I love how you used actual brands for the cup and bottle. It makes it seem all that more real. I love the glow from the house! I want to go inside of it! I can't wait to see more in this series, Jas!!

Re:

LOL! I actually had a Heineken shirt on. Even though I don't like beer =P It's a shirt I got at a thrift store long ago, and I bought it because it is a child's shirt, and it struck me as funny that they made a little kid's shirt with a beer logo on it (it's probably from 20 years ago, very old).

I also don't like coffee, hehe. I also noticed that both the Heineken logo and the Starbucks logo both have little five pointed stars featured prominently in them - how odd!

Re:

Thank you!!!!! I had waaay too much fun painting this one, lol. If I had my way I'd have made it several times as big with just as much detail.... but then I'd only get one painting done in a week, hehe.

Jasmine, the painting is cute, I have to say that I laughed when I saw the detailed starbucks cup, lots of great detail!

I also have to say that I’m so jealous of you, just finished the painting and look what its already at! Maybe ill have to start painting fairies j/k

Buts geez! I just can’t believe that and I’m jealous! But I know you worked hard to get where you are, and I’m determined to do the same, I refuse to work for anyone but me and retire in my 20's lol.

It’s great though!

Hehe, I spent several years there selling things for about 1/10th that at first - had to put in my "dues" I guess. That keeps you humble, lol. ;)

JASMINE!!!!!!!!!!OMG!!!!!!!!!!!! Sorry for all the exclamation points but OMG!!!!! I LOVE THIS!!!!!!! I didn't get a chance to look at your journal entry until now. I LOVE this painting it is sooooo cute! The little faries. The little shiny things they collected (How cute is that?). The Starbucks cup. The broken Heineken bottle had me ROTFLMAO!! The lighting from inside the house. The gloomy background. The little flower peeking out at the left. Wooowwwww, I just absolutely adore this piece. Has your dad seen it yet? I'm sure he's loving it too! Even the little pieces of striped red and white material is awesome. Okay, I'm off to stare at your painting again.

*note to self: use asthma pump before looking a Jasmine original* lol
