New Painting!!!! And new prints!!!!! [Nov. 13th, 2004|10:49 pm]
Jasmine Becket-Griffith
Oh man, it's been such a long day!!!!

FOUR HOURS of which I spent simply scanning & pieceing together my new painting that I finished, hehe. I love doing large paintings, but they are a bit crazy to scan in, lol!!!!!!!!!

But I am so very proud of this painting, and so very pleased with how she turned out - truly one of my best so far!!!

I've called her simply "Swamp Fairy", and you can see her here:

"Swamp Fairy"

I included a photo of myself next to it to show how big she is!!!!!

Since it's so large and detailed, I put her up in my eBay store, where she will remain until purchased =)

But of course in the meantime, I have listed her as one of this week's "SALE" prints!

Here they are:

10"x8" "Swamp Fairy" print on sale for $10.00

16"x12" "Swamp Fairy" print on sale for $20.00

And in addition I have my new Alchemist painting available as sale prints:

8"x10" "The Alchemist's Revenge" print on sale for $10.00

12"x16" "The Alchemist's Revenge" print on sale for $20.00

Enjoy!

I'm off to fix up some dinner, and tear myself away from this computer for awhile.

Re: smlie's

Thank you!!! I definitely plan on including photos like that when I do my larger paintings - I think it's a great way to really give perspective on the size (just the numbers on the screen for measurements doesn't always do it for some people!).

WOW!!! It's gorgeous! And huge! You've out-done yourself Jasmine!!

I know someone will buy it soon. I wish I had that kind of money ;_; It's gorgeous.

Which reminds me to check my lottery ticket. Maybe I'll be lucky and I'll get to buy this painting after all ;-D

Wow-stunning as always, and not just because of how beautifully executed she is. My newest piece, 'Skyflower' which I am almost completed on, has real elements in it, which are paralel to you swamp fairy Jasmine. Great minds and all that...
And isn't scanning and piecing a pain?
I love her anyway, and its nice to see you alongside the piece too.

Thank you, David! Oh man, scanning and pieceing = urgh!!! Actually, I don't mind it THAT much. My computer is just getting on in years though and my RAM is just barely enough to handle a 30"x24" 300 dpi .tiff file being manipulated and merging the layers, etc. So for each piece of scan I had to try about three or four times without getting the "scratch disk" photoshop errors. ::shudder:: I will probably be getting a new computer soon though - ::crosses fingers::

Your "Skyflower" is absolutely beautiful, by the way!

Beautiful Job, Jasmine!!!!! She's (can't find any words to describe how wonderful she is)... If only I had $1000... BTW you're too damn cutesy for your own good ;) I can see why you use yourself as a model for most of your paintings. Talented and beautiful....lucky you ;) I'll be waiting for more (Just as everyone else is, I'm sure)

WOW Jasmine, you have really out done yourself here haven’t you. This painting is incredible!! Over all it’s the size that really makes it so dominating in a room. I like how you added the picture of yourself beside it in the auction, so you can get a good feeling for how large it is.. I’m sure it will sell!

She is a PURE DELIGHT!!! Such a lovely painting!!!

I'm sorry I haven't had much time to pop in and comment on your beautiful art these days - the little ones are keeping me so busy!! But when I do get to peek in, I certainly enjoy!! I miss getting to chat on LJ as much - but at least I'm getting some stuff done...

Hugs, dear lady!!

Thank you so much, Wendy! I'm very proud of this one! I've had a couple of interested bidders already, so hopefully she'll have a new home very soon!

Ah, no worries! LJ is a time-burglar, that's for sure!!!

The new swamp fairy is so amazing! I just love looking at the detailed background. I feel like I'm being swallowed up by the place; it's so beautiful! Vast scene with a cute little fairy with a leafy cover. So pretty . . . =)
