"Aries" [Mar. 29th, 2004|08:05 pm]
Jasmine Becket-Griffith
She's done!!!!!

Meet...........

"Aries"

The first in my Zodiac series! She is sitting in a moonlit garden surrounded by geraniums (the flower associated with Aries), wearing bright scarlet striped clothing (the colour associated with Aries), and she has a tattoo of the Aries symbol on her arm! And if you look up in the sky you will see the constellation of Aries prominently displayed brightly in the stars! In addition you can see the planet Mars (the planet associated with Aries) in the sky!

Now, I've started on a commissioned piece for wobblesnorts, and I'm also going to try to get my submission ready for the EBSQ Aesop's Fables show!

But first, I'm eating dinner ;)

WHY CAN'T I OWN THIS ONE!!! I think this is the most gorgeous shade of red I've seen!Alas, she really should be mine!! I am an Aries. I have a red room. I have horns;) LOL I think it's purely logical she was meant for me!! Hehe. She's beautiful Jasmine! If she doesn't get BIN, I might have to have someone bid for me while I'm gone!!

Hehe, thank you Misty!!! ;) I used several shades of red to get it - I'll probably never stumble on that combination again though, lol - I should have paid more attention!

Hehe, don't worry! I'm going to do all of them eventually - Aries is just the first in the astrological charts, so she came first in the series ;)

That would be very, very cool!

Hehe, right now I'm working on your commission (you might recognize the pose from the photo you sent!!!).

For the EBSQ show I'm going to do a brand new painting (I'll start that tomorrow) - it's themed to Aesop's Fables, and we can choose between three different stories. I think I will either pick "The Lion and the Mouse" or the "Hen who laid Golden Eggs" - I'll have to sleep on it and decide in the morning!!!

saving pennies for at least owning a print when you do cancer. where did you find all that info-it is odd over the years i have come across bits and pieces of info for signs but i guess i usually only remember the cancer one.

I have a couple of astrology books that have all of the associated colours and plants and stuff - I looked some of them up online. I forgot I was going to have her wearing a necklace with the stone associated with her - ah well.

Cancer will be a fun one!!! I suppose I'll go in order, so it won't be too long.....

Thank you Phillip!!!

Hehe, you'll probably have a little while to save up - I'm going in order, so Capricorn will have a little bit of a wait.... ;)

Oh wow, really nice! I've been looking at your work for a while, and this one I really like. It seems a bit different than usual somehow - the eyes. They seem a bit more sultry, and I don't know if that's an expression you often do :) maybe it's that she's got her hair hanging over her eyes slightly. They are a lovely colour too. I have to admit I am partial to astrological themes and more than a bit partial to Aries, so am looking forward to seeing your paintings for the other signs. I think you mentioned you saw Aquarius as a mermaid. I'm an Aquarius (which is next to last!), and I've always thought of Aquarius as more of an airy kind of creature, a wing-borne, or wind-borne fairy of some sort. Just a thought :D. Anyway, good luck with the rest of the series!
