Painting!!! (Who, me? Painting?) [Jan. 28th, 2005|10:39 am]
Jasmine Becket-Griffith
Still working on the lovely Szepasszony!!! She's turning out so nicely - I love her already =) I'm really proud of the landscape I did in the background - I watched a travel show about Transylvania/Hungary/Romania and paid close attention to what the countryside is like there. I don't paint a lot of landscape elements, and it was a lot of fun.

I'm not sure what to name her - I was just going to name her "Szepasszony", but then I though that would just confuse people and nobody would be able to remember what she was called, or how to prounounce her. So instead I think I'll call her the other translated name given to her - "White Witch of the Storm". Easier to recall correctly, lol.

I will probably finish her in time to post her tonight! In the meantime though, you can watch me HERE.

foxmagic is helping us out with our computer problem today. One of them is completely fried, which has been a big hassle for us in the past week, limiting a lot of our internet access. It's a "secondary computer", but still it's been hard since we both needed it to keep up with orders and all of that. We have FOUR printers now (lol, three of them are the big wide-formats - they have taken over our non-existant dining room!!!!) and having just one dedicated printing computer to run the prints slows us down considerably (which is why I went a week without offering sale prints, lol - I needed to be able to keep up!). Now everything should be running smoothly though, thank goodness - back up to speed!!!!! >^___^<

ANYWAYS - I'm off to paint!!!

I have to say, I LOVE the movement in her hair. It's so fitting, and it really, really makes for a very exciting piece. I know I keep saying it, but I can see with each painting like this how much you're growing and expanding your talents, though it's almost unimaginable to think that at this point, with how good you are, that you could.

Hooray for swirly hair!

My mom is from Hungary! One of the things I always associate with Hungary is the fine embroidery - my grandma used to do tons of that embroidery.
