Good morning, good morning! [Jan. 2nd, 2005|10:55 am]
Jasmine Becket-Griffith
Another beautiful day - a little breezy, I've got the windows open - not too hot, not too cool. Weather.com calls for the same every day for the next ten days in a row - highs in the upper seventies, lows in the mid/upper 50s. All mostly sunny - that's what I call perfect!

I FINISHED a painting yesterday! I haven't scanned her in yet, but she's an adorable little wide-eyed cutie with green wings behind a crumbling stone window - I love how she turned out. I'll try to list her tonight along with the new first editions of my canvas prints of "Ophelia Immortal" and "Hamadryad". I've already sold a lot of Ophelia canvas prints, but I still never have auctioned off the first one, so I thought I'd better do so, lol.

I'm planning on starting a new BIG painting today! I've been doing a lot of larger pieces lately - the one I did yesterday was only 12x16 though, so don't worry - I'll still be doing small pieces from time to time, hehe.

The painting I'm going to start today will be one of my very large, detailed pieces - it's going to feature Queen Mab and her court. She's a faerie queen mentioned in Shakespeare (Romeo and Juliet?) and also loosely associated with Arthurian legend as well. I've got a couple of things to catch up on first, but later on you can watch me paint HERE on my webcam!

Yep Queen Mab was in Romeo and Juliet. I'm a complete Shakespeare nut, I'm always reading the plays and sonnets hehe! My latest photography project for college is based round Shakespeare as well lol! Obviously I chose to do that :)

I can't wait to see your new painting, you paint fast lol! As well as the one you're going to be working on today!

The weather sounds lovely, here it is so cold and rainy!

Lucky you on the weather =P. We got ice storms here. Can't wait to see your painting!!! It's soo interesting to see different artists take on Mab. I'm sure yours will be beautiful at any rate. ;)

Mercutio is the coolest character!! He's so funny; I love him. He even joked about his sword wound before he died. A light-hearted temperment till the end. =)

Queeb Mab sounds like she'll be awesome.

I am SOO jealous of your weather.

I have a sneaking suspicion that Queen Mab may be related to or based on the Irish fairy queen, Maeve - I could be wrong, though. Maybe she's the English version of the Irish creature?

Indeed she is! I was just doing some research on her this morning and Maeve was listed as an alternate spelling!
