Good morning, Atlanteans! [Jan. 12th, 2005|09:36 am]
Jasmine Becket-Griffith
I'm a'painting!

You can watch me HERE!

It's coming along nicely - it's so big though, lol, a bit imposing. So far I just have part of the sky done. I'm going to try to finish it (gasp) today. Which is going to be quite a project considering I didn't start until last night, lol, so we'll see.....

My mom, her boyfriend and my grandfather are coming down to visit next week! Which reminds me, we need to buy a coffee maker. Matt & I don't drink it, but so many of our houseguests do, it's only fair, lol.

It's going to be another beautiful 80 degree day today =) I feel like I'm missing out. If I finish this big painting today I will celebrate and take a few hours off tomorrow to do something outdoors, hehe.

There have been some little ground doves in our yard, I hope they stay there, they are so cute and we have a very safe and fenced off walled yard which would be good for birds that don't really fly, lol. I always worry about them - they seem like such prime targets for foxes and alligators. We do have a beautiful blacksnake who lives out there though, and some pretty hefty Cuban Treefrogs - man they are big. Probably not big enough to eat a dove though (I don't think....).

All right - off to work!

They're really cute - hard to see, they blend in nicely with the ground, kind of grey earth coloured.

I've been watching you paint this one! It's a bit hard to tell what's going on through the cam just yet, but I love the colors so far! I'm so excited to see it done!!

If I ever come to visit, I'll drink your coffee!!

I don't think I know what a ground dove is, but they sound like the cutest things ever!! And that frog is so adorable looking!! I want to sit in your backyard for a while and see all these nifty creatures, lol!

Certainly! Before you visit just let us know what type of coffee you like (I don't know anything about coffee, lol.)

You are a maniac aren’t you lol, Your going to be sitting there all day! Don’t forget to eat and take bathroom breaks lol. But That would be cool if you finished it today, but that doesn’t mean we will see it tonight will it, it takes you a while to scan those large ones doesn’t it... ?

Oh the suspense of it all!!! Cant wait to see it!

Yes, I am, actually! I'm a complete and utter maniac - it never ceases to amaze me how few people even notice!

Hehe, it took about 4 hours to scan and piece together, but it turned out great!

LOL !!!!!!!!!! Stop haunting me like that with your crab in my dreams dammit !!! bwahahahahhaha

I'm like you Jasmine, I itch to finish a piece in a day, but stupid things like sleep ,hunger and an occasional change of underwear gets in the way;)
I can't wait to paint fulltime.
Anyway, I was watching you last night, the base is coming along nicely, I'm looking forward to seing it progress.

I have never seen a ground dove (that I'm aware of), but we do have a lot of ring tail doves. They are so tame and gentle, they will let you pluck them from the trees. *^_^*

have fun with the family figures around. man-you guys always have tons of people visiting all the time....sooner or later you will just convince a large part of your family to move down there and be closer to you guys since they all want to come to florida all the time.

So, will this be a strictly landscape painting, or will there be a figure within?

On another note, I'd love to see a complete side-profile painting from you. Profiles are notoriously difficult to do for most people, but I bet you'd do really amazingly at it.

Hi Jasmine,
We have a pair of doves at our house. I think they stay together forever. They are forever sitting with each other. They will usually test out a place to see if it is safe. They are such mellow birds. Not noisy or messy.
This painting looks wonderful. My Ebay should be working soon! Watch out for scammers. These people are the worst! They must not have anything else better to do than think of ways to rip people off.
Have a GREAT painting day!

You may want to look into getting a "French press" for your guest coffee. they are so much prettier than an ugly electrical coffee maker, easier to store (compact) and makes MUCH better coffee :)i use one all the time.
now...i have to go check out the new painting! hehe!

Ooo wow! I hadn't seen this painting at all but I just took a peek, looks great so far! Hehe, good luck getting it all done!

Aww that'll be nice to have some more family to visit! I wish my family would buy me a coffee maker I could use, I love coffee lol!

Those Treefrogs are sweet! But I hope they don't eat the doves though!
