The Fall of Atlantis!!!!!!!!!! [Jan. 13th, 2005|09:17 pm]
Jasmine Becket-Griffith

All right!

Here she is - I'm finished and I FINALLY have her all scanned in......click below to see her........

"The Fall of Atlantis"



I'm so darned happy with how she turned out! I spent at least 20 hours on this, I think - it's all a blur now. She's larger than "life sized" too, hehe.

I took today (well, part of it) off! We went to Blizzard Beach which is one of the Disney waterparks - what a fun place! It was in the low 80s, and mostly sunny - we had a wonderful time =)

Oh yes! I have a couple of new sale prints up! The first is Queen Mab -

Queen Mab 8"x10" & Queen Mab 12"x16"

the second is Lost....but Not Worried (which is from a couple years ago, but somebody just pointed out to me that I never put her up on eBay, lol, so I thought I'd better, seeing as she's one of my best-sellers!).

Lost....but Not Worried 8"x10" & Lost....but Not Worried 12"x16"

All right! I'm off to help Matt get some orders and stuff done - have a great evening, all!

Jasmine, this is fantastic. You have outdone yourself. Of course I think you should show this and not sell it, but you would expect that coming from me.

Truly fabuloso.

*grabbing my heart* JASMINE THIS PAINTING IS BREATH-TAKING!!!!!! OMG!! Okay I am officially scared of you, lol. Whenever I look at your latest painting, I can't image how you will top it but you always find a way to do it. Your work is PHENOMINAL!! Okay I must go back and stare at the painting, lol.

Hehe, I have to admit, I got a little goose-bumpy when I scanned it all in and saw it finally too! When I'm working on the actual painting I usually see it just as a bunch of little pieces, and it's not until I scan it in that I actually get the impact of it as a whole (especially with big paintings like this one where I work horizontally - I'm always a little nervous to see what it looks like dead-on - it's hard to keep the proportions right when I'm seeing it slightly fore-shortened due to size, etc.). Thank you, Carrie!

WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOW! The style of her face is still your style, but something really shifted. You were right. It is so mature, and it is larger than life both in scale and beauty! Excellent Jasmine!!! I love it!! XOXO

Ah, thank you Kayti!!!!!! I'm especially pleased with how the eyes turned out. I put her in the closet quickly when I was done - when she was on my art desk I kept seeing her face reflecting on the window by my computer and it was freaking me out a little, like she was outside peering in at me!
