Painting!!!!! [Apr. 17th, 2005|03:37 pm]
Jasmine Becket-Griffith
It's been a busy couple of days!

My dad, stepmom, Kachina & baby Theodore all arrived on Friday, and we went out to the Kona Cafe at the Polynesian resort for dinner, and had tropical drinks at the tiki-bar there >^___^<

Then yesterday we all went to Disney's Animal Kingdom and had a lot of fun, and also dinner at the Animal Kingdom Lodge at Boma (one of my favourite restaurants - an African buffet with tons of vegetarian choices).

And then this morning we went with them to the Magic Kingdom and rode rides, etc., and then we split up since I needed to come home to work and we need to get some big print orders out, etc. The rest of them are up at Disney still for the rest of the day while Matt & I catch up, hehe!

We've been having so much fun!

I'm painting right now though, you can peek in on me here HERE on my webcam! It's a butterfly-type fairy all in shades of green, if it turns out looking like it does in my head (which by all logic it should) it ought to be pretty beautiful >^__^<

Hope everybody is well!!! Congratulations again to Brad & Jillianne on their new baby!!!!!!!!

Nope! It was probably just brown or yellow, hehe, looking weird under my painting light & webcam, perhaps!

It's a fun place, I go there a lot - sometimes just to walk around or take photos of the plants there!

Oh yum, I love Boma - I could eat there every day and never get sick of it!

I just checked in on your cam this morning and saw a shot of the pirate painting you finished. I just got home today from running errands, and checked in again, thinking I would see the beginning of a new painting, and I found a halfway finished painting. You shoulda seen my reaction! "HOLY CRAP!" You paint fast, girl!
It's looking great. I love the fairies.

Hi Abby!!!

Hehe, I'm a quick one! I think I was inspired when I saw the butterfly breeding room at the Animal Kingdom yesterday, lol.

That little green faerie there is making me think of Chartreuse and Absinthe;>

Hi there! :)

I just caught a glimpse of some of your work when I was checking out some stuff at Hot Topic - I checked out your website too and it led me here :) I just wanted to say that I really like the style of your artwork, it's incredibly unique and every piece is really beautiful in it's own different way. I especially love the eyes of your characters - they're really expressive. Keep up the work, I hope to own an original piece someday!


<3 Amber

Jasmine what did Brad and Jillianne have?

Was it a boy or girl and Congrats to them how much did the baby weigh That makes you a Auntie again how nice... Tashi love the pictures especially fairy with a sweet tooth I gave her my copy and she loved aries and the pink butterfly fairy, and Sami has peppermint patty in her room frame and pumpkin pixie her favorite she has to get frames she has three more I gave her. They love your work like I do, even my sister-in -laws brother said your one damn great artist. So you have me as a friend and my family as fans.:) Hope you are having a great time I always wanted to go to the Tiki bar since my room is done in Shag Tiki decor with your paintings too. And I have never been to Disneyworld but my sister collects the limted edition charms they sell in the World of Disney store she has Toy Story ones etc.
