Excited! [Feb. 25th, 2004|02:08 pm]
Jasmine Becket-Griffith
I finished Laura's commission, and sent it off to her for approval!

Now I've started THREE original pieces, lol. I'm just starting off with the backgrounds - I don't know which one I will do first.

So far the plans are a 12"x16" piece, maybe New Orleans themed, I might even stick Anne Rice's house in there, since I really want to buy it, lol, but obviously can't yet afford it =P

Then, I have a 12"x16" piece ready to be turned into the NEXT "Mother Nature" painting - this one will be "Mother Nature: Bringer of Death" - kind of the flip-side of my "Mother Nature: Abundance of Life" painting. I'd like to show both the positive and negative aspects of Nature. I might offer them together as a print set (maybe like framed next to eachother, when we get the frameshop set up....).

Then, I have a HUGE (for me, hehe) painting I'm just figuring out how to setup - it's going to be 24"x18" (that will be tied for the largest piece I've ever offered on eBay!) that will be called "Rude Faeries" or "Mean Faeries" or something like that. I've got lots of reference photos of myself sticking out my tongue and making rude gestures and stuff, lol. I'm going to put a bunch of them in there being generally obnoxious. Ought to be pretty cute ;)

So, if you are watching my webcam you may see me working on any and all of these, switching back and forth while they dry!!!

Jasmine = Genius!

Oh I don't know which ideas of the paintings you want to do next I like more! The rude fairies one sounds AWESOME! Not just in how it's going to turn out but also how much fun it will be to paint! Your second mother nature painting sounds like it will be right up my alley, I really like grim reaphers. I had a sort of egyptian one I drew a long time ago. She had skeletons holding her clothing together... like.. a skeleton arm laying across her shoulder and the hand holding her cape shut.. and she had a headdress that was made of skeletons hands.. and her boots had skeleton shins/feet laid over it.. really morbid... it was in my really list of things to 'do updated versions' of.
I love your other New Orleans Ghost painting, and I LOVE Louisiana, (and anne rice!) So I definately know your new new orleans painting will be really exciting.
I really want to paint right now too! I am working on a ragdoll portrait of Jack Sparrow and I havea million other ideas I want to do but I had my wisdom teeth cut out yesterday and well.. yeah... I'm waiting on the pain killers to kick in so I'll watch you paint! :)

Ah, that rude fairies idea sounds awesome! Lol, I'm picturing all these fairies with PMS, making all kinds of mad and rude faces! I'm sure you wouldn't want to call it anything referring to PMS though, lol. I'm wierd, I know :)

Your Rude Faeries sounds great!! 24"x18"?? Wow! That one will be so much fun! It reminds me of some of Froud's "rude" looking faeries.
