NEW PAINTING! [Feb. 23rd, 2005|10:32 pm]
Jasmine Becket-Griffith
Woohoo! I finished it!!!!!!!

It turned out beautifully - it's very large too (18"x24") and is so nice "in person" - I wish you could all see!!! The colours really are so vibrant!!!

You can see it by clicking below.........

"A Little Fairy Glamour"



The model for this piece is the lovely lindseylovesyou (Lindsey - email me at JasmineToad@aol.com with your mailing address and I will get a big signed print out to you - thank you again!!!).

Whew!

All right - I'm starving! I'm going to make some dinner. Tomorrow I will need to spend a good long time catching up on emails, etc. but I'll be sure to start a new painting as well - see you then!

The likeness is more than remarkeable. What a beautiful job!

BTW, I just friended your journal. I was toying around online looking for promising artists and ran across your site. I was immediately intrigued by your style. My 10 year old son thinks you are AMAZING. He sat here GUSHING when I was showing him your pieces.

Imagine my surprise when I saw you had an LJ. I've been on this site for about 4 years now. I guess it's a small world after all, huh?

Thank you very much!

Pleased to meet you!!!

Oh! It always makes me very happy when I hear that children enjoy my artwork. I was very much into fantasy art at a young age and it cheers me to think that there are children who are looking at my art much as I did others when I was a little girl =)

I have GOT to get a picture to you!!! My god, this is gorgeous! It's... well. Her hair is perfect. I love the braids. It's interesting to see a new face, too, and such a beautiful one at that (though I think anyone you paint you could somehow make magical).

LOVELY, Jasmine. So pretty. Hurrah!
