Good morning, friends! [Jan. 10th, 2005|11:29 am]
Jasmine Becket-Griffith
Busy morning, as always - a million things to do. It never stops! Never!

I'm PAINTING (surprise!) - you can watch me HERE!

It's a girl (maybe a faerie, not sure) with her pet (looks like a dragon, to me). I'll probably be working on her all day. When I'm through THEN I will start on my Atlantis painting, which will be large and grand. And then holiday pieces (Valentine's/Mardi Gras). And squeeze in some commissions and other projects in there too. Hmmmm.

I started reading "Jonathan Strange and Mr Norrell" - I'm maybe 50 pages into it, but so far so good! I picked it up semi-randomly with my Borders gift certificate.

All right then, off to work!

I can't get the webcam thing to work- I must not have the right software or something. Ann loves that book, I think it will be up your alley, though I haven't taken it on yet!

I have that book to read yet. We bought it a while ago, and I got about 3 pages into it & could tell I wasn't in the mood for it yet...so I put it down. After I finish re-reading Dorian Gray, then I'll probably pick it back up again! :)

I think you'll like JS&MrN very much. I was super-duper happy with it.

An Atlantis project! That'll be so cool! I love Atlantis-- stories, theories, whatever.

OH MY!....Your painting is so cute! Your artwork is so inspirational >.< I came across a site that was selling some of your stickers and switchplates. I think someone is telling me to buy some prints...it's just so hard to decide!
