Good morning! [Sep. 8th, 2004|11:00 am]
Jasmine Becket-Griffith
I'm getting ready to paint! I'm not quite sure what yet, but it might be a pretty big one, and it might just be purple....

I'm so excited! My family is coming tomorrow!!! Yay!!!!! I'm crossing my fingers that Hurricane Ivan changes his course =P According to the new map HERE at the Hurricane Watch Network it looks like we're in the 4-5 day range if he continues on the same path =P

Oh! Speaking of family, my step-sister Sonya (coincidentally also a professional artist) has decided to put up an auction on eBay for a custom portrait (of a pet, person, whatever - she can paint just about anything really well) starting at only $50 with no reserve - go check it out!!!! :

I'm off to work - you can of course watch me HERE in just a few moments!!!!!

Purple is my absolute favorite color. I use it ALOT in my art (see my icon). I'm in the process of redoing my studio/office in purple hues. I've been searching for the best inspirational art to hang that will compliment the room so I may just have to buy a big print of this!!! Hint, hint! YAY!

*crossing fingers that Ivan leaves us alone*

the color purple.

Thank you for replying to my post yesterday Jasmine, I know how busy you are! I agree purple is a good color, I know the Lavendar is suposed to inspire imagination. I painted my oldest daughters room in all lavendar, & it actually helps her be more creative, as she is also an aspiring artist. Just out of curiousity, have you ever considered painting images based on songs? for instance Black Sabbath has a song called "Fairies Wear Boots".I thought it would be cool to see what you could come up with. thanks for your time. stay safe! tina.

Re: the color purple.

Hi Tina!!! Oh!! Hehe, I was thinking about that song just a few days ago, lol - I love Black Sabbath!!!

I really should sometime - I listen to a lot of music while I paint, and I'm sure it inspires some of it!

Purple!!! It is pretty so far! Purple is like one of my favorite colors but not my favorite favorite like blue...

Anyways I saw the pic of the dog that Sonya painted. LMAO! It looks exactly like my dog, Miss Annie. It's so pretty.

I just started painting on canvas. I did my first canvas fairy painting last night. Its a little fairy sitting on a mushroom...I have to name her, but I can't think of a name for her...Jas could I tell you what she looks like and you can name her? lol I can't name a thing without it sounding retarted.

Hugs 4 everyone...

She sounds pretty!!!!

Hehe, unfortunately I'm the WORST person for coming up with names! My husband Matt is the fellow who names most of mine, hehe. If it were up to me they'd all be "Fairy #2432" and "Fairy 2433", etc., hehe.

Hello Jasmine! I've been gone a while, Love the art that you've been doing lately! I'm with you on the name game. I hate trying to come up with names myself.
