Good morning!!!! [Apr. 22nd, 2005|09:40 am]

[mood |creativecreative]

I'm sorry that updates have been a little sporadic, hehe - it's been hectic around here since we have visitors in town! We've been having a lot of fun!!!

Today though, I am PAINTING, while everybody else is off at Universal Studios, hehe.

Specifically I am painting a new Alice in Wonderland piece, tentatively entitled:

"Alice and the Dormouse".

It will be the 10th installment in my Alice series! It's going to be at the Tea Party and there will be lots of delicious treats in there. Yum! I will wear my new "Dormouse" perfume from BPAL while I paint it, too (that's actually part of the reason I chose to paint this one, lol!!!)!

I may also be working on and off on a commissioned Role-Playing Game painting too. You can watch me paint HERE

I'll be working as soon as I finish eating this banana, hehe.

Re: Alice and Wonderland

We had a ferret named Mr. Woggles when I was growing up, actually! I like them a lot, they are fun pets. I probably shouldn't get one again right now though, hehe - I don't think he'd get along with my cats!

Alice

I adore your work Jasmine and very excited to see a new Alice in Wonderland peice. This is my favourite story of all time. I have so many sketches of Alice of my own - I adore the Chesshire Cat, but yet to get anything finished.

Look forward to your new piece.

big fan!

hell my name is jess. i found ur livejournal site a couple weeks ago and have been lazy about validating my confirmation so i'm just now getting to comment on ur site. i have to say i absolutely loove your work its beautiful! i crossed your artwork a year and a half ago and i'm always checking to see if you've done anything new. and i thought i'd know something about u and found your livejournal thing while reading about you. i've never got the chance to talk to someone who's work i admire so i was hoping we would be able to become cyber friends hehehe. but ya, how are you? how's life? the general 'normal' questions i'd ask anyone else lol. hope you comment back. toodles

Re: big fan!

I'm actually from Missouri myself (Kansas City) - we just moved here to Florida about two years ago, the rest of my family lives up in KC.

I've been painting since I was about 4 or 5, hehe! I started taking it seriously when I was about 14. Professionally though I didn't start until I was about 18.

Hey Jasmine! I was flippin' through your gallery today and I noticed that the Zodiac collection wasn't finished. Do you plan to do the other signs? If you do, I can wait to see the Scorpio. No rush, though...

Hi Abby!

Yes, I'm still in the middle of the series, I'm going in Astrological order - the last one was Libra so that means that Scorpio will be next up in line!

Re: alice

LOL! No offense, but if you've been following my artwork for years, I'm sure that you are aware that I've been painting Alice for longer than I've even been on the internet ;)

In fact........ http://www.strangeling.com/aliceinwonderland.html

and then the Alice merchandise:

http://www.strangeling.com/merchandise.html

Not to mention, there are a hell of a lot more fairy painters on eBay, if that's your concern ;)

And, for the record, I would never limit myself to one genre as an artist. That would be boring for me, and not true to myself as an artist. In fact, I think most of my best paintings don't feature faeries at all.
