PAINTING! [May. 25th, 2005|05:38 pm]
Jasmine Becket-Griffith
I caught up on some of my older emails and paperwork today, etc. Hmph.

It's getting stormy looking outside! Perhaps I will hear thunder soon! Good painting weather....

I'll be starting a new painting in a few minutes - you'll be able to peek in on me HERE!

Not sure what I'll paint right now - I'm thinking about maybe something with Runes - I've got my runes out....... we'll see ;)

I keep getting mail for "Mr. J. Beckert-Griffith Jr.". Interesting....

Aha - I heard a few raindrops! Yay!

Off to paint!

Runes, eh? Love the idea! Can't wait to see it. What pray tell, do Jasmine's runes reveal? ;)

Ah, just my luck to be inspired, today, by my two favorite fairy artists - you and Froud. Just last night I scoured my messy bookshelves for a hardback copy of Ari Berk's & Brian Froud's "Runes of Elfland." *flips through book & smiles* I highly recommend it, if you haven't already discovered and read it for yourself.

Good day!

Re: runes

Hi Angelique! Thank you so much! Hopefully after I run some quick errands today I'll be able to finish her up tonight! I randomly picked one before I begin painting, to decide which one to feature centrally - it was "Mannaz" which is appropriate since it can stand for "creativity"!

Hey there!
I found your LJ through your website. I am really intrigued by your artwork and have a fasination with gothic and unique fairies/fearies. I see a few that I would seriously consider using for a tattoo project on my back.
I wanted to ask your permission before 'borrowing' them to be drawn up. Or maybe you could draw something up for me, I would pay you.

Either way, thank you in advance for the consideration.

Thank you so much! I'm always incredibly flattered when somebody bases a tattoo on my paintings - you are more than welcome to use any that you see! The one thing I ask is if you could please send me a photo of the finished tattoo!!! I'm making a new section of my website of tattoos!!!!!!

You can email me the photo here, or you can send the photo to me at:

No Problem.

There are so many I like, I don't know which to choose, I will most likely end up with a backpiece...lol

I am considering a good/evil fairies on my shoulders, and one on the bottom of myback as well. I kinda want to keep them with the same features....

Ah! I like the idea of the good/evil faeries! Feel free to print out the website pics to bring to the tattoo artist if you need to - they can usually flip things around & resize, recolour, that type of stuff.

I love your icons. They're simply gorgeous and the transition is so smooth.

I hope you're liking the imps.
