Painting! [Aug. 23rd, 2004|10:07 am]
Jasmine Becket-Griffith
Good morning!!

Yesterday was fun - we went to Lesley & Jared's house and helped them with various house-related projects (building shelves, installing doors, etc.) and they bought us pizza =)

The rest of the day I spent answering emails and discovering the joys of Final Fantasy XI Online. It's a really fun game! It's very important to me though that it doesn't interfere with my artwork, etc., so I'm only going to play when I've already finished my orders, email, and painting for the day. It might cut in a little to my sleeping time, lol, but I've never been one to sleep very much =P

We ended up ordering a PS2 online so pretty soon Matt will be able to play with me =)

Right now I'm painting!!! I've sketched out a figure in paint so far and I'm getting ready to start working on it again - you can watch me HERE! I think she's naked though, so it's a PG-13 rating ;)

I've got still more emails and LJ comments to go through (thank you for your patience!) - I'll get to that after I finish painting though!

Off to work......

Lol - that's too funny! It's weird how my LJ friends run into each other, hehe.

I've done the same thing before - I commented once to somebody I thought was an artist friend of mine, but it ended up just being somebody who liked their art and used it for their icon, lol!

It's loosely based off of myself, with a little more "curves" thrown in for aesthetics, hehe.

you crack me up....i figured everyone would find out in due time. my sister was irate with me not calling her two weeks ago when i found out...the problem was trying to get it leaked out to all the parents at once. so finally we sent an email yesterday to all seven of the parents and her and it was just silly. my mom i think got the biggest kick out of it. she is the most excited i think.

Thank you so much for helping! It was so fun hanging out. And now Matt wants to come by again to finish the door! You guys are so nice! I had a card for you that I forgot to give you. I'll give it to Matt when he comes by to help Jared.

Jasmine Hi...

I like this one so far naked, I would like to see you do one painting naked or half dressed. It is a shame about the stealing of The Scream and the Madonna I had copy of the scream lost it somehow. You do wonder about the sec. in these museums.
