Painting! [Feb. 15th, 2004|04:24 pm]
Jasmine Becket-Griffith
Wow - I ran a TON of errands today! I got a lot done, and now I can paint!

Oh yes!!! My friend Delphine (delphineart ) just painted a portrait of me!!! She's the girl I modeled my last painting (called "Delphine", hehe) off of. There's a lot of portrait swapping going on here in LJ-Land! It's a gorgeous painting!! It really looks so much like me too!!!

You can see it here on eBay! It was really neat to see a painting of me that I didn't paint, lol! =)

I'm getting ready to begin painting now - you can watch me here!!!

As most of you have noticed, I'm modeling this painting after Kayti (faerieshine). It's very interesting so far - I was looking for a challenge, and redheads are notoriously difficult to paint, hehe.

I agree --redheads ARE a challenge! I have no worries for you though -- can't wait to see it!

Oh yeah! Jasmine, i've been meaning to ask you! Would you be interested in painting on fungus? I have a bag of fungus's here and I thought since you like to paint on wood sometimes, that you might like to try these! they're awfully neat to paint on! and I think your faeries would look fantabulous on them. ^____^

Want me to take a picture of a couple so you can see what they look like?

i am blown away by delphine's portrait of you! and i didn't realize how young she was until i peeked at her me page. gee whiz, i can't wait to see this girl i a few years!

and i think it's funny you struggle with red-heads; i struggle with blondes, lol. i guess there must be a hair colour out there that each of us fights with to see the colours, highlights, and lowlights in well.

Thank you again, Del!!!


Well, they can't paint pictures of me without my permission, wink wink! ;)

I'm working on my Kayti picture right now - it's so much fun! Red hair is fun to paint, hehe.

Let me know when you are taking picture submissions! I can give you quite a few of my children. I think they are pretty amazing looking, but what mother wouldn't ?
