Busy night! [Feb. 19th, 2004|11:35 pm]
Jasmine Becket-Griffith
It's the night before the big move - things are so very hectic around here!!!!!

I still managed to finish a new painting, and I've listed it up on eBay. I LOVE how it turned out - the colours are much more brilliant in real life, and it's HUGE (well, 20"x16", which is huge for me, hehe) and I love it!!!!!!!

Here it is:

"Mardi Gras Masquerade"

Enjoy!!!

I might be absent from LiveJournal/email/etc. for the next day or two - there will probably be a time when our internet isn't hooked up yet at either place, and of course my computer will probably be disconnected for a bit. I'll update when I have everything set up again!! Wish me luck!! >^_^

Re:

Thank you!!!

Oh man, I'm excited, but I really wish it was already over and done with! I'm always paranoid that I'll break my drawing hand or something when I'm moving furniture......

Good luck with your move! I hate hate hate the process of moving!!! I hope things go well for you (weather, health, no distractions, etc.)

GORGEOUS PAINTING!! WOW!!!!!! You have captured the spirit of Mardi Gras PERFECTLY! (Not that I have ever been, lol!) The beads, the feathers, WOW! Those stone masks, *gasp*, truly your best as of yet!

I do have a very very very small bit of constructive criticism, though. The gloved hand seems a bit flat compared to the wonderful 3-d effect throughout the rest of the work. Perhaps in the next painting you can experiment with the hands or something. Personally, I am IMMENSELY fond of hands, so that is why the hand above all else captured my attention to begin with. SO DON'T SHOOT ME!!! ;)

Great job, wow!!!

Re:

Thank you!!! Hehe, I love New Orleans, but I've never actually been there DURING Mardi Gras. Mostly because all of the hotels quadruple their rates!!! o_O I'm not sure how I'd like THAT much craziness either, but I do like the more "civilized" aspects of Mardi Gras....

ARGH! I see what you mean about her gloves - I was TOTALLY intending on going back and doing a central highlight down the middle of the fingers (NOT just the edges - d'oh). I half want to change it, but it's already got bids =P It seems like every time I do a large piece (especially when my mind is occupied with something else, like moving, lol) I always forget something until after I've scanned.... Thank you though for pointing it out! I always appreciate constructive criticism. =)

Re:

Hey! I like yours quite a lot actually! We just have different styles - variety is good!! Your "Mardi Gras Cat" was actually what reminded me it was time to do a Mardi Gras painting, by the way!! >^_^

More brilliant in real life?!?!?! IS THAT POSSIBLE? It GLOWS on the screen as it is! I think this is the softest yet detailled piece I've seen you do! The woman (I know it's you;) is absolutely radiant! This is my favorite of the portrait style pieces!!!!!! Seriously, you have always been amazing, but you keep GROWING as an artist! You are truly inspired:)

Your new painting is SO beautiful! I think it portrays the more mysterious side of Mardi Gras rather than the party side, which I think is very unsual and wonderful. And Louisiana is a GORGEOUS place, I went there in October with my school's newspaper to speak at a journalism conference.. the food: AAA+++.... anyway, I'm saving money for a large print of this one and your tropical fairy, let me know when they are available! :)
Good luck with moving! PLEASE oh PLEASE be careful not to injure your back! And don't forget to take lots of breaks and have a drink every once and a while. ;) You'll be SO happy once you get settled in.
