FINALLY FINISHED! [Jan. 5th, 2006|10:17 pm]
Jasmine Becket-Griffith
My goodness, this took a long time!

But it was well worth it, as you shall see....

Click below to see my new painting.....

"Queen of Insects"



I'm really really proud of this one. It is waaaay cooler in person too, I wish I could show it to everybody. =P

There are some of my favourite bugs in there too - Acherontia Atropos - the "Death's Head" moth (he really has that marking which like a skull on his back!). Rhinocerous & Goliath beetles, walking stick, luna moth, ladybugs, etc.

I stuck her up in my eBay store. As usual, you are welcome to try eBay's "Submit Best Offer" if you want to try to give me another price offer, (you might get lucky!), but I'm not gonna let this one go for cheap, hehe ;)

But for those of you on a budget, don't worry - I have lots of other cool stuff!

Some of the last paintings I did in 2005 are now available as Canvas Prints & open edition SALE prints! Click below to see the auctions for the CANVAS prints (since they are the #01 of each edition, to be fair I am auctioning them all starting at just a penny each!):

"Nepenthe" LIMITED EDITION CANVAS PRINT

"Mermaid in Her Grotto" LIMITED EDITION CANVAS PRINT

"Hope and Despair" LIMITED EDITION CANVAS PRINT

And then if you'd like to see ALL of my SALE prints, click below:

http://stores.ebay.com/Strangelings-Art-Gallery_SALE-ITEMS

Or if you'd like to go to each link individually:

"Nepenthe" 8x10 $10 SALE & "Nepenthe" 12x16 $20 SALE

"Mermaid in Her Grotto" 8x10 $10 SALE & "Mermaid in Her Grotto" 12x16 $20 SALE

and "Hope and Despair" 8x10 $10 SALE & "Hope and Despair" 12x16 $20 SALE

Whew! I am beat. I'm starting to feel really under-the-weather again too - Matt has been really sick for the past couple of days, left over from Kansas City, and now I think I'm catching it again. Blah. I'm going to take the rest of the evening off and drink some Thera-Flu.

Good night everybody!

I can't tell you how badly I wish I could get Queen of Insects. I LOVE monarch butterflies, (and have always been into bugs!) love your work... and that is just amazing, Jasmine! I am highly impressed.

Are there prints of that one in the future? Please tell me there are. ;)

Some day,oh yes, I will own some of your art.

Thank you Meredith!!! It's one of my favourites too. I have a book of different Gothic architectural details, and I'm trying to work them into my paintings....

Thank you Michelle! I'm very pleased with how it turned out. I love insects, so this was a fun excuse to paint some of my favourites.
