New painting! [Aug. 17th, 2004|08:05 pm]
Jasmine Becket-Griffith
This one is really cool! It is modeled after the beautiful faerystar!

Here she is (since she's so big I stuck her in my eBay store):

"Looking for Faeries"

For those of you who would like prints, I've chosen "Looking for Faeries" as one of this week's sale prints!!! The 8"x10" prints are on sale for $10.00 and the 12"x16" sized prints are on sale for $20.00.

Okay.... off to make dinner, and then maybe get to some email/LJ comments (I'm falling behind again!!). Enjoy!

Oh my gosh, that is so gorgeous, definitely one of your finest pieces! You had such a lovely model! And I LOVE the pre-raphaelite feel! One of my new favorites!

Wow, this one is so different then your other ones! It's so much fun to see new things from your favorite artists (in addition to your regular style that I ADORE, by the way ;) The background is so great!! I love how the little fairies are hiding so well. They are so cute!

Very BEAUTIFUL!! It has the feeling of some of your older pieces like "Titania" and "Ophelia"!

Thank you Misty!! I thought the same thing - she reminds me of some of my older work (but better painted, lol).

She's beautiful!

And that background is gorgeous too!! Very pre-raphealite (sp?). Don't worry about the comments--I've realized that in some cases it's hopeless on past entries, and I don't have nearly as many as you do.

Wow Jasmine! That's gorgeous! What an atmosphere it has! =^_^=
It's good to hear you got through the hurricane OK.. I was in Galveston the whole time and had been hoping no harm came to you! So what was it like, the hurricane?

Re: =^_^=

Thank you!!

Oh my - it was VERY loud, and scary! It passed directly over us. A BUNCH of trees all over town are completely uprooted, but other than that Celebration fared pretty well. A lot of the surrounding areas are still without power though (we luckily didn't lose any power or utilities - yay!!) and of course those who live out on the coast got the worst of it.

Allegedly a storm like that only makes it to our part of the state about once every fifty years though, so I think I can deal with it =)

Wow, I love it! =) If you're looking for a critique, I have one that I think is good, but I'm a little afraid that other non-artists who see it might find it offensive. LOL. Oh well . . . I actually think that painting would be better without the faeries in the front. It seems to conflict with the style of the rest of the painting and the pre-raphaelite mood. They seem like they were just stuck in there and don't really fit in visually (at least for me), but they make sense with the title. Hey, I still love it. I think it's a beautiful, wonderful painting . . . as all of yours are. If you don't wish to receive any critiques let me know (although I must admit I normally wouldn't have anything to critique! LOL) I LOVE the way the light is shining on the landscape behind the girl, like it's glittering. It's so pretty.

Thank you Amanda!

Your thoughts are always welcome! To be honest, by the time I've finished a painting, I am happy with it, and I like how it looks. If I weren't, I'd still be working on it, lol. I specifically and consciously integrated the two different styles - I find it striking, and since I paint primarily for myself, that's why!

Very nice Jasmine, something different from you. Don't know why since you paint both full figure and other faces.
