Good morning!!!!!!! [Mar. 29th, 2004|11:43 am]
Jasmine Becket-Griffith
What a glorious day!!!! I went down to the leasing office today (somehow we ended up with two water bills this month, hehe, and I had to straighten that out) and it was just so beautiful outside! The windows are open, it's nice and breezy, and sunny - so pretty!

When I did Tae Bo this morning I tried to do it with strap-on hand weights - lol, I got about halfway through before I had to take them off. I'll slowly work my way up!!!

I see my emailbox has mysteriously gotten full again, hehe - I'm going to paint first though - I really am anxious to finish my Aries painting! I have her with little rams-horns, and the constellation of Aries can be seen in the background! I'm going to give her some red stripey tights too, since Red is the colour usually associated with Aries.

After I finish "Aries" I will be working on a couple of commissioned pieces, and maybe a new "Ophelia" painting (I read an article in Renaissance Magazine talking about all different artists throughout time have painted her). I did one a few years ago, but I want to do more, lol. I like tragic heroines.

Okay - off to paint! You can watch me HERE!!!!

ya! i cant wait to see Aries! i'm an aries, so i will try to buy a print when i get some $$$$

aaaah - i hate u! i live in rainy cold portland (in oregon). but actually its nice today. but usually we get no sun - on the tv they said we get like 69 days of sunshine all year which is BS. i'm going to be a musician and move somewhere warm after i graduate and maybe u can do my cd cover, haha

Helena Bonham Carter made a great Ophelia, I think. If you haven't seen her in the role, you should totally check it out before you paint Ophelia, she had this quality of great beauty, innnocence, and was totally believable as someone driven mad by a broken heart.

Hurry and finish Aries so you can start Cancer! lol!!

I am so excited at the thought of you doing another Ophelia!! Lately I've been intrigued by her (and thinking of doing my own!) and I often gaze at your old Ophelia. I love her!!
