Good afternoon!!!!!! [May. 8th, 2004|04:32 pm]
Jasmine Becket-Griffith
Hi everybody!

Well, when I woke up this morning "Thumbelina" had won the "What Fairytale Should I Paint Next" poll in a sudden-death victory over Cinderella!

But then, earlier today Cinderella got another vote, making it a tie again, lol. But since technically Thumbelina won, I will paint her first! Afterwards I'll probably do Cinderella, and then so on. Thank you for all of those who voted!

Thank you all also who sent photos of yourself for my "Call for Models" request! There is no time limit - you are all welcome to send me any photos at any time =) If you missed that last post, it is HEREYou are all so beautiful - I'm sure to have lots of great ideas!

So, I'm going to start painting after I grab some lunch. I will be working on Thumbelina, and some other new paintings. I'd like to do another piece featuring lots and lots of different kinds of faeries (in fact, I might even be using some of the models who sent me photos!). So basically I'll be doing lots of different paintings - I'm not sure what I'll start on first, but you'll be able to watch my webcam HERE when I get started =)

Damn... I voted for Goldilocks and the three bears :-) I never heard the story of Thumbilina when I was a child, so please enlighten me!

HURRAY!! I voted for Thumbelina!! YIPPEE!!
You got a LOT of response to your cattle call (hee hee..that's what we call it in the fashion industry when we do a model call...because lots of people show up for it--not because they look like cattle)
That's so great! It could be really cool if you did a painting with loads of different fairies from some of those pics. GEEEEZ! Everyone who sent pics are BEAUTIFUL! WOW! You'll have lots of material there! :)

Well, Thumbelina was my second choice - after Rumpelstiltskin. It's a cute story.

I love the nice brown tones you're working with on the current painting. I'm not sure if it's a Gothling or Thumbelina, but it's beautiful.

Thank you!! It's actually just a kind of spur-of-the-moment painting (I found a forgotten sepia toned tube of paint and was immediately inspired, lol) - not in any particular series. I love how she's turning out - kind of like an old fashioned faded photograph!

Thank you!!!!

Hehe, nope - this is another model who sent in some photos though! She has a very different facial structure than I do, so I thought it would be a fun challenge (and she has pink hair, which is way cool!)

Hehe, not on this one - she's not Asian (but is wearing a lot of eye-makeup....). It's going to be kind of a punk/faerie kind of thing! I do love Asian art though - and I've had a couple of models of Asian descent email me photos, so it's just a matter of time!

This is a picture of my friend becky. i just thought it was funny if you wanted to see. I took a bunch of her and my friend erika both of whom were cheesing for the camera all day. hopefully i will be able to get them put onto a disk within a week. i am a 35 mm slr camera girl myself so my stuff takes just a little bit longer then people with digital cameras. but hey if you are ever wanting male pictures...i bet you i could up load some for you in a jiffy of bradley ;-) and you think my our eyes are big...dang that boys sometiems just look sooo huge.

I just checked out your webcam, I love the pink-haired girl so far!

I just saw your call for photos, I might send you some this week. I'm sure you've got a ton to work from already though, lol.
