yay for dinner... i am thinking garlic bread sounds extra yummy.
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).
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.

love the new painting it would be perfect for a childs room
Oh you always paint the prettiest hair...It always looks so real...but my fav. part of this painting has got to be those adorable fairies hunkered down and hiding..teehee..
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?
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!
I think "Looking for Faeries" has become my all time favorite!!! I love the style of this one so much! It is absolutely beautiful!!!!!
Thank you Colleen, I'm very proud of her =)
Looks awsome Jasmine, I like to see when you come up with some new stuff, I didnt even notice the green fairies at the bottom utill I scrolled down to the details lol, I think its neat how you snuck them in like that!
I love it!!!!! It's so different!!!
James thinks it look slike Alanis Morisette..LOL
Thank you Jodi!
LOL! Well, Taina (the model) does look a little like her. Kind of like Liv Tyler too!
I love this painting , it is just lovely !
you are a amazing artist !
Very nice Jasmine, something different from you. Don't know why since you paint both full figure and other faces.
WOW! So cool!!
O.k...I have to ask...because I'm going to go on ebay & buy a print of the Licorice Fairy...is that sweet tooth fairy available in a print too?? I want to buy both! :P
