Painting!!!! [May. 11th, 2004|12:30 pm]
Jasmine Becket-Griffith
Blah! Boring errands all morning =P Big lines at the Bank and the Posty both - ugh....

Thank you all who have submitted modelling photos!!!! I can't believe the wonderful response I got - I still have a million emails and files to look through, hehe, so if I haven't contacted you personally yet - don't worry I will soon!!! >^___^<

Right now I'm painting a new piece featuring a lovely model who sent me some photos the other day. She has a very unique look and is very pretty! It will have kind of a Snow/Ice fairy queen kind of vibe, with light colours (but still with gothic overtones). That doesn't sound like it makes sense, does it? Lol.

Anyways - you can watch me HERE!

Hey Kayti
You just have to ask someone nicely and I am sure they will paint you as a frog. even though it sounds kind of tricky though. It might turn out as a huge big insult if it goes wrong *LOL* oops!
Hopefully Maria will or Jas wil squeeze you in.

Hi lasairiona!

Oh my yes - I usually accept a handful of "commissions" (custom paintings or portraits) each month. You can see my pricelist and policies here: http://www.strangeling.com/commissions.html
(Basically starting at $300). Let me know if you are interested!

That is very cool that your dad is an artist! He has some neat stuff - very original work - not like anything I've seen!

Oh yes indeed - I've always enjoyed artwork. I always drew and painted even when I was just a little girl. I started painting seriously when I was about 13 or 14, and I started selling professionally when I was 18. I'm almost 25, so that's 6 or 7 years professionally now!

I stumbled upon your website this morning and I am still in awe! Your work is breath taking! I've already started begging my boyfriend to save up to get me one for Christmas - hehehehe! I've been watching your webcam, too, the new painting looks awesome! I am just drooling over your paintings and then I read that you said you take on freelance jobs from fans and I nearly had a heart attack! The first thing that popped in my mind is, "Wow! What a great wedding gift for us - now if only we were old enough and engaged..." So I'm begging you to keep up the WONDERFUL work ( not just for that but hey, it's a reason! ) I wish I had found your site soon enough so I could've entered my boyfriend and mine picture in the model thing... I'm not all that beautiful but wow - to be put into one of your paintings as a fairy or mermaid and have him be an elf or something ( ha! the very thought brings pleasant images! ) - that would just rock!

Your newest fan,
- April Christine
