New painting!!!!!! [Oct. 21st, 2004|09:22 pm]
Jasmine Becket-Griffith

Here it is.....click below to see......

"Dia de los Muertos"

I'm so very pleased and proud of how it turned out! There's an incredible amount of detail in there that really can't be appreciated through the computer, I wish I could just show her off in person to everybody =(

I'm going to enter her up at the EBSQ Day of the Dead contest of course! I'll let you all know when the show is up and ready (there are a bunch of other great artists and fellow LiveJournal-ers submitting too, so it should be a hell of a show!).

And since this is a special "seasonal" holiday painting, I have decided to offer prints of it right away too, so it's one of my "SALE" prints this week!

The 8"x10" prints are on sale for $10.00 and can be found here:

"Dia de los Muertos" 8x10
and the 12"x16" prints are on sale for $20.00 and can be seen here:
"Dia de los Muertos" 12x16

In addition I have a couple other of my most recent paintings up as SALE prints:

The 8x10 "Lamenting the Forgotten" prints are $10.00 each and can be seen HERE
The 12x16 "Lamenting the Forgotten" prints are $20.00 each and can be seen HERE

The 8x10 "Hovering at Twilight" prints are $10.00 each and can be seen HERE

and finally the 12x16 "Hovering at Twilight" prints are $20.00 each and can be seen HERE!

I've got a lot of email & LiveJournal catch-up to do! It looks like LJ is being a little wonky and is making multiple posts appear, etc, so I'll try to figure all of that stuff out when I go through your comments, hehe!! Good night all!

Oh man!! That is SO cool! =)

P.S. I really think "The Alchemist" is one of your best pieces, and I would love to see another one. I remember you mentioning doing another one using the same character. =)

Congrats on finally finishing. I love the cultural idea. It's such a cool holiday! LOL =)

Oh yes!!! I definitely plan on using the Alchemist again - he's an intriguing fellow, hehe.

That's an amazing burst of colour! I love the harlequin-esque background, and the glittery skulls :)
I'm not hurrying you or anything, but I was just wondering when "Fairy" (book) will be ready?

Re: Wow

Thank you Trish!!!

All I know about the release date from the publishers is "Early 2005" =P I would have LOVED a pre-Christmas release as was originally intended, but this kind of stuff moves so slowly, and there are so many steps involved. I will keep you posted though!

darn~ well, deadlines can be annoying.
i will try and do either a mad hatter teaparty or an environmental show every spring(easter/equinox) and muerte show every fall, seems to be the rythm i'm falling into and fits into my duel light/dark perspective.
