New painting - "Fairy Countess" [Nov. 12th, 2005|09:36 pm]
Jasmine Becket-Griffith
This one turned out really pretty - I kind of just started painting her and she came alive on the canvas... click below to see her....

"Fairy Countess"

Guess what?

Matt fixed the air conditioner! Yay! It works fine now. I'm so happy, that is a weight off of my mind.

That was a scary couple of hours, lol. It was a mild weather day though, so I probably would have just had the windows open anyways, hehe.

Okay, time for FOOD!

Fairy Countess

Jasmine, she came out lovely I probably will buy a print of her as soon as I get money I will send it with the money I owe you. I like the paintings when you do the eyes really wide like her and Hindu Fairy. Sharon

She looks really evil, but in a good way. (If that's possible.) I love the detail work on her dress, choker and armbands! She's really amazing, that would probably take me an eternity. I don't have much patience! :D

Hello. I'm sorry to just drop in on you like this, but I was wondering if you had heard from bmjohnson lately? I know that she has you listed on her LJ Friend's List and I dunno if you know her personally or not.

I just haven't heard from her in a few days (I also live in WA and she's told me that she's moving back to Canada asap but I don't know if that's this weekend or what) and was wondering if she's ok.

Again, sorry to just drop in on your LJ but I didn't know how else to try and track her down to make sure that she's ok and safe. Thanks.

Hey there!

Wish I could be of more help, but it's not somebody I know in "real life" - I think they just friended me here on LJ a while ago and I friended them back - I hope everything is okay!

Thank you Lisa!

He is really proving his handy-ness lately too - I thought we might have to call a plumber since our faucet kept running and wouldn't turn off, but he fixed that too (and for only $9!).

Re: fairy countess

Thank you Jenevah!!!

Oh my, well - since it's our only source of income (Matt works for me as my assistant), I kind of have to keep it up at a fast rate to get the mortgage paid, hehe.

I have an over-abundance of ideas, I really love what I do, and I'm kind of a work-a-holic (always have been, no matter what). That helps a lot too, hehe!

New User Id...Last time.

Jasmine, I have change my user Id for the last time, because I will be banned from the computer if I do it again. I am sorry, if you want to add me to your friends list go ahead. Also the Fairy Countess I love her I love her eyes and hair. Please don't be angry at me. This is my mom's computer I use. And I got into hotwater with her yesterday. Take care Sharon. I will probably buy a print of the Countess soon.

For starters, I love your work to say the least!! Countess is lovely! I have the silvery mermaid (with the green eyes & tail like the sticker) tattooed on the backside of my upper calf. I am making my entire calf an underwater scene and would like to keep with the theme...your artwork. I love the green sea serpent & would love to use him. Do you have any pics of his body?? Let me know...my boyfriend (and tattoo artist) is 2 sessions away from finishing the frog & mushroom piece on my back, then we plan to get back to my calf. Any help or suggestions would be appreciated. I plan to have a sunken ship ship at the very bottom & need to fill the space. Thanks for your time!! Glad you are keeping cool:)

Re: Question

Thank you so much!!!

Oh wow!!! That is awesome! Could you email me a photo of it? JasmineToad@aol.com - I have a page up on my website here:


where I post pics of tattoos based on my artwork =)

Ah - to be honest all of my paintings are pretty much as shown - if only part of him is showing in the painting, that's all there is of him, hehe. They're all acrylic paintings on canvas so once it's painted, it's pretty much finished. You might want to peek up at my website: http://www.strangeling.com to see some of my other pieces for inspiration. I've only painted one shipwreck really - http://www.strangeling.com/shipwreckmermaid.html - that's pretty much the only one I've done so far. I did a quick search on Google Images ( http://images.google.com/images?q=shipwreck&hl=en ) and found a bunch of cool shipwrecks (mostly photos) - maybe that will help a little =)

Good luck with the tattoo! Again - I'd love to see a photo ;)
