I'm painting!!! [Aug. 17th, 2004|10:26 am]
Jasmine Becket-Griffith
Good morning!!!

I'm painting!!!

I'm working on a a BIG (18"x24") painting, a little different than my usual work. Inspired by a beautiful girl in the UK who sent me a photo for my "Call for Models" a while back, this has a very classical Victorian/Pre-Raphaelite kind of feel to it. It's a soft woodland scene with a lost maiden wandering.... I'm going to put some hidden faeries or goblins or something in there too! Hopefully I'll finish her tonight and get her up in my eBay store. I'll also make her available as a "SALE" print for those who'd like to have her and don't have the budget for the original =) I'm also going to put up "Licorice Fairy" as one of this week's "SALE" prints!

Okay, off to work!!! You can watch me HERE!

Awesome, I can't wait to see it. I don't know if you've been intending too, but you really seem to have been broadening your horizens a little bit lately. I think it's great. I think it's important for us as artists to never be afraid to take chances-sometimes we just have to suck it up and do it. I know it's what I've been trying to do lately-take risks. Even if they are little ones at a time-lol. Good luck with your new one, I'm sure it will be awesome. ~Erin

Thank you Erin! I try to get a little better each time I paint something, or at least try a little something new! I see some artists (not so much in fantasy art, but just art in general) who once they become more successful they start to get a little "soft" and tend to rest on their laurels a little more. I never want to be like that - whenever I feel like I'm starting to get in a "rut" I try to force myself to try a little harder!

I love your Candy themed fairies. I got the peperment one and it reminds me of Christmas.
The Licorice Fairy is cool too.
How about doing a chocolate one, with choc and melted caramel , yummy. I think it would sell really well hehe... I woudl want one, that is for sure.

The new painting does sound different, good luck!

Hi, I am a fervent admirer of your work.
You have become 0ne of my fav artists of all time.
I would like to offer myself as a model, but sadly, all i can do is send a photo as I am too far away.
I really really love your work.
Keep it up!

Uh oh! It must be you - Yahoo says I've got about 16 active viewers, so it seems to be working! You might want to re-install Yahoo Instant Messenger - the viewing software is in that bundle.

Your getting real good Jasmine.....

I was looking for something different than your fairys although I love them dearly. I want a print of this when it goes on sale. I love the woman you painted and the little green goblins. Your friend Sharon.:)
