Painting! [Jul. 16th, 2005|03:47 pm]
Jasmine Becket-Griffith
I'm painting!

Hello to everybody not currently reading the new Harry Potter! Hehe, LiveJournal is always dead when there's a new HP release!

Today I worked on a sketch for my big commissioned piece, and sent that off for approval. Now I'm getting ready to work on my new Morgan le Fay painting.... it's also huge, and if it ends up looking like it does in my head, it should be pretty darned cool.....

You can peek in on me HERE to look over my shoulder while I work =)

Off I go!

Hey Jasmine,

admit it you were reading harry potter too. I am guilty. but i can honestly say that I wasn't at the barnes and noble last night. they had a harry party & @ midnight the books went on sale. I got mine at HEB (grocery store) when i went this morning to get more hurricane supplies. we've been warned to prepare for hurricane emily)
the grocery store had a whole table of harry potter books, but thaty had run out of water.

I can't wait to see this morgan la fey painting. the background looks nice. since it's for a show does that mean it won't for sale. I hope you have prints.

I must admit I am curious on the large 5ft painting. I can't wait to see that one.

good luck

have a great weekend everyone.

LOL! Actually, I'm waiting for the last book to come out before I read the others. I hate waiting for books to come out when I'm in the middle of a series, hehe! I read & loved the first one, and then thought I'd wait until they are all out before I read the rest.

Morgan le Fay is coming out beautifully - I will be finished today! Oh - it will definitely be for sale! It's an online show, so I don't need the physical painting to be there =) And yes indeed there will be prints!

Isn't it dead? Usually I have several pages of friends' posts accumulate overnight, but since HP came out I only have a couple, hehe!

Gee, is everyone but me off reading HP? Is is so empty around her! I can't wait to see your Morgan painting Jasmine. I am amazed at the time it must take to do a painting that large with so much detail!

I'm not reading Harry Potter, but I did go to Barnes & Noble this afternoon. When I walked in the door, there was a Harry Potter display right up front that had sold down. When I exited the store, the display had been restocked with more books!

I didn't buy Harry Potter, but I did buy a couple of bargain art books; one is about Gauguin, and the other is about "Masters of Netherlandish Art," both for a mere $10.

I'm looking forward to seeing your Morgan le Fay painting!

I love the bargain bin art books at B&N!

Oh, I will be done today for sure - I think this is one of my best paintings so far!

This new one look beautiful! ( as always)

Hi Jasmine,
Well our house is being torn apart. Starting the 1500 SF additions. YIKES! what a mess. Our air condition has been off for 2 weeks now. I have a new diet plan for anyone wanting to lose weight.... hehe
I love this new one. Love to watch you paint. When time permits. Just thought I would say "Hi" and see what is new. Hugs to you a Matty!

Re: This new one look beautiful! ( as always)

Hi Kim!!!!! >^___^<

WOW - 1500sf? That's crazy! That's almost as big as my whole house, lol! I hope it all goes as smoothly as possible - I know what a hassle house renovations can be.

I'm almost done with Morgan le Fay - I'll be posting her tonight for sure! I think I have spent longer on this than on any other painting I've ever done, and it's definitely one of my best. It's 24"x30" (tied with Ophelia Immortal, White Witch of the Storm, and The Fall of Atlantis as my largest non-commissioned works). I'm going to submit it to the EA Arthurian Legends online show and it might even end up in the book!

Not much else going on with us really - my sister & her husband are all set up in their new place, so it's just Matt & I at home now. It was fun having them stay with us though =) They're only a few blocks from us now, so I don't have to miss them too much, hehe. It's really cool - there is a nature trail that starts kinda behind our house and we can take it through the woods almost all the way to their apartment!

Hello, Jasmine

Hello! My name is Jalexa, and I have been a fan of your work for a long, long time. I can't paint or draw with a gun to my head, but I can write. And I find all your paintings extremely inspiring and beautiful. I truly admire your style for how different it is from others- your detailing and expressions, and color schemes are so breathtaking! I love fairy and fantasy art, but yours is some of the first I've seen that doesn't have that anime, or manga style to it- which is nice, but you need variety, and that's what you have! Your work conveys emotions and themes very well and just.. speaks to me like nothing I have found. Keep on doing the wonderful things you do! I'll be keeping track. :)

Re: Hello, Jasmine

Hello Jalexa! Thank you so very much! I try my best, hehe! I like to throw a little variety in when I can, for my own fun mostly, lol. =)

Thank you again, and welcome to my journal!
