Good morning!!!!! [Oct. 19th, 2004|09:59 am]
Jasmine Becket-Griffith
Ah, it's a lovely morning! I wish I was running around outside or playing at the beach instead of working today =P

But I am actually excited about getting to paint of course! I'm going to start working on my Dia de los Muertos entry for this month's EBSQ show!!! I've got all sorts of ideas for this one, I'm not sure where exactly I'll go with it - I'll probably just start painting and see what happens.

I've got a few things to catch up on, but in a little while you'll be able to watch me paint HERE on my webcam!

After I finish this piece, I will then proceed to work on some commissioned paintings that I have lined up. The first one I need to work on is a pretty big double portrait and is on a stretched canvas so I probably won't be able to do that one on my webcam, so you webcam-junkies had better watch my Day of the Dead one to get your fix ;)

(ps - I miss you Alex!!!)

I liked the last one you did, the yellow and black combo. Yellow is my least fave colour but you did a good job with that!!!!

I have no idea whats going on with the webcam these past couple of days! I tried to take a peek last night and just now and it says it cannot create webcam viewer control and the little webcam box shows the refresh page. Its never happened before! :(
I had a look at some of the entries for "Dia de los Muertos" that have already been added, it seems like a really good idea for a show!

Stupid me! The reason the webcam thing wouldn't work was because on one of my deleting episodes (I find deleting random things on the computer extremly relaxing) I accidently deleted half of Yahoo IM! Oops! So I've just downloaded it again hehe!

Thank you Colleen!! Oh yes - that's my entry that I'm working on now!! >^__^< It's based on the Dia de los Muertos altars that folks build this time of year, with flowers and candles and sugar skulls and that kind of thing. Usually they put photos of the dead relatives on there too, so I included an old fashioned photo of myself in the background, lol. This one will be very detailed - I probably won't be finished today, but I should have it posted by tomorrow!

I have a bunch new photo references of myself too - I wouldn't be surprised if I end up using some more of those soon.... and I have a lovely photo of Del I need to paint too..... ;)
