A New Painting!!!!!! [Apr. 17th, 2005|10:07 pm]
Jasmine Becket-Griffith
I've finished a very pretty new painting!

One of my many "green girls" - here she is.....

"Green Butterfly Fantasy"

It's even prettier in person >^___^<


I'm going to try and catch up with some emails, and then relax a little bit. Maybe figure out some dinner - the rest of my family is off at the Magic Kingdom still, hehe - they probably already ate!

My parents are going down to the Keys, leaving tomorrow, but Kachina & Theodore are staying here with us for the next week and a half!! Kachina's sister-in-law (she's James' sister, and therefore Theodore's aunt, and also our friend, lol) Heather is coming down later this week to stay too! And my parents are probably going to stop here again on their way back after going down to the islands. Ought to be a busy couple of weeks!

Of course I'll be painting a good part of that time too, hehe - I have some commissions lined up and some new originals in the works as well. I was going to start another project tonight but I'm just so tired (I've been doing a lot of walking during my family's vacation down here), I'll probably just take it easy for the rest of the night.

So, 'night all!

She's so beautiful! My favorite colors too.

I don't know how you get so much done with so many visitors at the same time. You're just very motivated and talented, I guess.

Have fun!

She's great. I wish I could afford to buy all of your stuff! I still think that a painting of a baby fairy with an adult fairy would be SO awesome. I can't do it, cuz I suck...but YOU CAN!!! :)
Oh yeah, and how many model photos do you get per day? I'm just figuring my chances of you choosing one of mine...I don't think you'd choose me though cuz I have short hair, and I know how you love doing the long-haired fairies!
Keep up the great work...I'll send some photos...worth a shot.

Lol! Well the main reason I paint long-haired faeries is that mostly I use myself (or sometimes my sisters) as models and we all have bottom-length hair, hehe. That, and painting the hair is usually my favourite part!

Oh!! Thank you for sending the photos! I'm still sorting through the emailed pics from my original "call for models" - I literally received almost 2,000 responses, hehe, so I can't guarantee I can use all of them by any means - heck, if I used one a week that would take me almost 40 years, lol! I do catalogue all of them with the model's info in my reference folders though, so when I need a new model pic I just choose from them (somewhat randomly). If I end up using any of yours I will of course let you know and send you a free print! I'm keeping all of the reference photos indefinitely, so it might even be a couple of years from now, and then you'll REALLY be surprised, lol!

HI, hows it goin? I just saw your artwork for the first time this weekend, and was inspired to start drawing again. I am 26, and if you dont mind I would like to send you a copy of one of my drawings when it is finished, just to get some constructive critisism and maybe advice. I havent drawn in sooo long. Thanks.... Laura

I was wondering... do you make LJ avatars out of your work, or does anyone else? I would love to have some...

I put a few up a long time ago here:


I should make some more with some of my more recent paintings. You're welcome to use any of them (or my other paintings) as long as you don't alter them (other than cropping or re-sizing) and are sure to credit me in the keywords (and also please do NOT post in "icon communities" etc.).
