New Paintings!!!!!!!!! [Sep. 22nd, 2004|11:59 pm]
Jasmine Becket-Griffith
I have two new paintings to share with you all!!!

The first (due to popular demand) is my next "Custom Fairy" painting!

Basically it is an unfinished painting - just the basics are there - a wide eyed girl in front of a starry night sky. The winner of this auction will get to tell me what colour/style to make her hair, what colour eyes she should have, what kind of clothes, and what kind of wings!!!!!

"Custom Fairy" painting!!

And now, here is my latest "masterpiece" (inspired by the wonderful abundance of frog visitors I've been receiving lately....):

"The Handsome Frog"

I'm so tired, I'm off to go relax a little and eat some dinner! Enjoy!!!!

I LOVE 'The Handsome Frog', it's one of my favorites that you have ever done! Oh how I wish I had enough money for that. Hopefully prints will be available later on ^_-
I adore the custom as well, I have to bid on that... I love the stary sky theme!

I love the way you parted the custom fairy's hair. It gives her a different look. Very cute!!! ^_^

Thank you so much Jodi!!!! >^__^< I really think it is one of my best so far. It's one of those pieces that really is much more impressive in person too (since it's on a pretty large scale). Hey - if you convince James, maybe you'll get to see, hehe!!! ;)

Frogs scare me too. I don't know what that is. I think the frog is actaully a TOAD which is WORSE!! hehe...
The picture is wonderfully done Jasmin. I lvoe it when you do different theme's like that and not just a fairy. I think when you have more time to cncentrate on your art, you should do more like these. They are awsome.
