She's finished! [Jul. 26th, 2004|10:24 pm]
Jasmine Becket-Griffith
Yay! I have finished my newest painting!

It's the largest I've ever offered on eBay (other than commissions), and one of the best, if I do say so myself....

She's MUCH more impressive in person - 24"x30" (two foot by almost 3 foot) and just shimmers - I love her! Lol, she took a couple of hours to scan in though, hehe.

You can see her here:

"Starry Night Fairy"

Since she is so large and detailed I have set her at a fixed price and stuck her in my eBay store. Don't worry though - I'll soon be offering prints of her on sale ;)

Now, I'm going to go fix up some dinner......

Wow, she is pretty, and sold already! It's only been 4 minutes since you posted this!!! That's crazy! Do these people sit around all day just waiting for your painting auctions to begin or do you tip them off or what? LOL. That's just insane! Congrats girl! She is shimmery and beautiful. =)

Thank you!!!!!

HOLY COW!!! ::falls over:: Sheesh, I should do more big paintings! I get so many people requesting me to do some on a larger scale - maybe I should from time to time, lol!

Hehe, the second I list an auction I send out an update to my "mailing list" - I have a form on my website where fans/collectors/friends can sign up and get on my instant notification list. That way my fans can get the direct link to my eBay auctions before they get into the eBay index in case they want to do a BIN or get the jump on everybody else.

Man though - that one went about 20 seconds after I sent out my update!!!! I couldn't believe it at first!! >^___^

Wheee!!!

Thank you!!! She's one of my favourites so far! It was really a lot of fun doing such a big painting - it was weird painting standing up a lot of the time, and it was a little um, time-consuming to scan in, but she's just so "wow" in person on that scale!

My goodness! SO many beautiful elements! The window, the ribbons! I think my heart stopped when I saw her! She is truly a gem! Although your technique is always flawless, she is completely 3D! She looks like she's about to float off the page! CONGRATULATIONS!!!! I am so excited for you!!!

Thank you Colleen!

I like the contrast between the blue & the orange - it makes her just "jump" out!!!
