New Artwork!!!!!!! [Sep. 29th, 2004|07:49 pm]
Jasmine Becket-Griffith
I finished this little cutie - it's a vibrantly coloured piece - I love how she turned out....

"Violetta"

In addition I have some newly-finished number #01 Limited Edition hand-embellished prints for "Just About Midnight" (11"x14"), "Starry Night Fairy" (11"x14"), and "Hunger Pains" (11"x14")!!! Since these are the first of each edition, numbered #01/25 I am going to auction them starting at one penny, with no reserve and no "Buy-It-Now" since I know a lot of collectors like owning the first of each edition, and I want to make sure everybody has the opportunity to bid =) Each is on a canvas sheet has been hand painted with acrylic paint details, and then hand painted with a glossy UV protection finish.

You can see "Just About Midnight" HERE (rated PG for partial nudity!)


And you can see "Starry Night Fairy" HERE


And you can see "Hunger Pains" HERE

In other news - I GOT MY BUTTONS IN TODAY!!!! Actually I just got my artist's samples, hehe, but I'll be getting a ton of them and the Cheshire Cat keychains in stock very soon!!!! The buttons (pins) are AWESOME! The designs are "Sparkling Among the Flowers", "Cheshire Cat" closeup, and "Lost But Not Worried" - I'm so happy with how they turned out =) They're already hitting various stores and I'll have them for sale myself very soon =)

Now - off to eat!

Violetta is a cutie.

YAY! I got the first bid on the limited edition Starry Night Fairy!!! hehe I probably won't be the high bidder for long, but YAY!! I consider her one of your best pieces. I keep trying to figure out what it is that makes her so amazing vibrant. Do you think it's the blues and oranges together? *scratches head* I normally don't even like those colors together (although I know they're complimentary), but you did a great job!! It's honestly my favorite of yours ever. ^_^

Oooh! Good luck!~~

Definitely the blues & oranges! I should do another in that colour scheme. It's funny - that was a complete accident too - I wanted to paint something big and I was running out of paint - I ended up using the only two bottles I had enough left in - blue and orange! I was also had just a few nasty worn down brushes, so I painted the rock window mostly with my fingers, hehe.

I like the black outline on "Violetta". I know you do that usually, but I guess you can just notice it more on this one.

I can't wait to see your buttons! And I need to drive more so that I can put your's and Del's keychains on my keys!!

Violetta is wonderful! I adore the bright colors, she is so pretty; I'm sure she will light up any room she is in!

I'm so excited about your buttons and keychains and whatnot- I can't wait to sport them on my bags and jackets!
I imagine the first time you randomly run into someone wearing one will be kind of surreal, at least it would be for me. Yay! ^__^

Beautiful work

I have bid on Just About Midnight. It's beautiful. I also love Violetta and while looking at her, I noticed the fairy with purple wings photo below, and also went to look at her. I'd love to have prints of both of them, in the future. Can't get enough purple in one's life. :-)
