0.0 OMG JAS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I'm in awe, that is AMAZING!
Brilliant as always ;)
Jas, its awsome, I love that there is just so much to look at its wonderfull! Im sure it will win.
I think my fav thing is that black skull candle, thats really cool :)
Congratulations on this piece Jas'-this is the most sublime piece I've seen from you yet, incredibly detailed and beautifully vivid, I really love how sumptuous your use of colour is. I have every confidence that this piece will swing it at EBSQ.
ps: her little belly is lovely.
I like it more everytime I see it :)
In case you don't get a chance to trawl all through my posts (LOL) - showed my mum "The Art of Faery" last night to show her some of the artists whose e-cards are/will be featured on Moondreamer...
And in an interesting co-incidence, she picked 2 artists as her favourite out of the book (although she loved all of it) - Jessica Galbreith and you :) I thinks I need to peruse your website for something scrummy for my mum for Christmas :)
Hi Trish!!! Hehe, I just read that (I'll comment here though) - that is too cool!!! That is awesome!!!

I can truly appreciate all those little details...I could stare at it for hours!!! *Sigh*
:::wants it...needs the preciousSSS:::O_o
Wooo..sorry I channelled Gollem there for a second...heehehehe *Wink*
Well for some reason I can't go on eBay, but I saw you working on it yesterday and it looked awesome.
Wowzer, no wonder your eyeballs nearly fell out! ;)
Strange, I could see it just fine! Did you get my comment???
Yep yep! Hehe, I got it three times I think, LJ is being so funky! Thank you so much, Kat! Now it seems to be working fine....
That is sooo detailed Wow. It woudl take me a month to do something that detailed. What does all the symbols mean?
There's a lot of stuff in there!
Mostly Catholic imagery with a little Santeria thrown in, hehe. The candle is based on an Indio one I had for honouring the dead. The "Mary" icon is that of the Virgin of Guadalupe who is revered in Mexico and a lot of hispanic communities. The little sparkly skulls at the bottom are what are called "sugar skulls" which are candies made for el Dia de los Muertos (it's kind of morphed into a Halloween/All Saints holiday over the years!).
I think this one of yours is now one of my favorites. It looks fabulous, Jasmine!
I took a little peak at the other ebsq day of the dead painting's, there are so many talented artist's out there!!!!
With that being said :) I still thank you painting will take the prize, you painting is just so detailed and true to what the Holiday stands for ,I just couldn't see you losing :)
Oh , good new's for me :) my dolls are selling better, so I wanted to ask you ahead of time cause very soon I will want a commissioned painting done ...yeah! but could you paint my daughter to look real to life , but giving her fairy wing's???? I hope to have the money to do it by early march , so this is way ahead of time , but I thought it's never to early to ask , because you are always so busy , which is a good thing :)
p.s. I did send you a few pictures of zoe before in your call for models .
Hi Mary!!! Thank you so much!!
Oh yes - Zoe is such a cutie! I'd love to paint her =) I'm already "booked up" pretty much with commissions for the next two months (holiday orders already!!!), but I'd be ready to start a new commissioned project probably right after Christmas. If you'd like me to reserve a spot for you then just email me and let me know!
Okay, now that ebay works, I checked out the Dias painting. Cripes, woman! You're insane! Look at all that detail! No wonder it took so long to finish, sheesh!!! You must have the patience of a saint. If that were me painting it, I would have crapped out around the middle of the painting and just put a giant curtain over the right side, lol. Man, I'm glad I didn't finish my entry, I would be embarassed to post it! ^^;; You definitely have this member's vote, I think you have this one in the bag. I love those jeweled skulls. I can't believe you do this stuff with actual paint. You should have your own painting show on PBS, I would pay to watch on DVD or something.
Thank you, Amanda =) =)
LOL! I must admit, by the end, the thought of putting in a biiiig curtain over one side did start sounding pretty good, hehe!!!
Yeah I heard that some people couldn't see some entries, its been ok with me....how strange!
