New Zodiac Painting!!!!! [Jul. 18th, 2004|07:52 pm]
Jasmine Becket-Griffith
[mood |accomplishedaccomplished]

After a brief hiatus, I've finished my new Zodiac painting!!!

It is the fourth installment in the series and is called "Cancer" (the fourth sign in the Zodiac). Cancer is a water-sign, and this piece is chock full of symbolism. Little Cancer is wading in a moonlit pool filled with lotus blossoms (the flower associated with Cancer), with amber coloured eyes, hair streaks and clothing (the colour associated with Cancer), and she has the Cancer Zodiac symbol on little dress! And if you look up in the sky you will see the constellation of Cancer prominently displayed brightly in the stars! In addition you can see the Moon (the planetary ruler of Cancer) in the sky! I will be continuing on soon with the other signs very soon - next comes Leo!!!!

You can see her here:

Zodiac #4: "Cancer"

Enjoy! I'm off to cook up some dinner =)

Thank you Candace!!!!!!

So far I've done Aries, Taurus, Gemini, and now Cancer (I'm going in astrological order) - so in not too long Virgo ought to come up!

(I think the secret is a mix of insanity, obsessive compulsive disorder, an overactive imagination, and a liberal dose of workaholism......)

I love this series Jasmine! Too bad I missed Taurus. There isn't a rule against redoing the series again next year right? :p I bet your prices will be way up there even more!

"CANCER" PAINTING IS BEAUTIFUL!

HI JASMINE,
SHE IS FULL OF LIFE. JUST WONDERFUL.
I AGREE WITH ERIKASFRIENDS- I TOO AM TAURES- YOU WILL NEED TO PAINT ANOTHER ORIGINAL NEXT YEAR. (I WOULD LIKE TO BUY THE PRINT IF IT IS AVAILABLE) - ALL OF YOUR PAINTINGS ARE JUST PRICELESS!
HUGS,
KIMBEARLYS
