So cute! I love the way her hair is floating on the surface of the water!
WEIRD! Who would have thought they would place a breaker box under a big plant like that. So funny.
I keep forgetting that it's warm where you are & am thinking "sheesh! I can't beleive they went outside in the cold weather to work on the back yard". DUH. I forgot that you are fortunate enough to be blessed with good weather while the rest of us are under rain or snow.
Thank you Lisa!!
Hehe, I think it's about 78 degrees out there right now... ;)
Wow, I think that's your best mermaid painting. It's immediately been put in my "prints to buy" list (which is way too big for my budget already :D)
OOoooooh! You should watch that HGTV Landscaper's challenge for ideas. How cool to design a backyard area that can be utilized practically all year round! There will be photos of some point of the finished product, I hope :-). Herb gardens! And you can grow practically anything in that tropical environment too ! Have fun with it!
Oh yes! I love that show!
I'm very excited about having an herb garden. I spend so much money on fresh herbs, I'm sure it will help that a lot, hehe.
I would love to see pictures of your newly renovated yard!
I will be sure to post them! Probably not for a few weeks at least though. Right now my backyard is a mess, lol.
Glad that breaker box was discovered and you have your outside lights. It's the little things in life that make us happy =)
It really makes it nicer at nighttime to have lights out there!
Hehe, good luck to you! >^__^
Your new painting is so beautiful! I love her blue/red hair and her red shimmering tail!!!

Hey Jasmine, I was just wondering if you'd ever thought of putting out a deck of tarot cards? I was just thinking that I would love a deck with your artwork on each card, and I think a lot of other people would be into it too. So I thought I'd just throw that idea out there at you. I also just wanted to let you know that since I ordered my first print from you (Bringer of Lighting) I've been saving up to buy more and more of your work on Lim.Ed.CanvasPrint > I figure if it looks THIS GOOD on something that is essentially a poster, Hand embelleshed on canvas must be amazing! Anyway... Let me know if you ever go for the Tarot deck idea, cause I would wanna be one of the first to get it ;)
Thank you so much for your post!
Oh yes, I've actually started a handful of decks over the years, but I never get more than two or three cards. It's simply inconceivable right now to have the sheer time required to paint 78 new original paintings for one project, hehe. I've thought about doing some other sort of oracle/divination deck (ie, non standard deck), but I have mixed feelings about it. Perhaps someday....

I had seen a couple of your fairies before, but while scouting around on the net Friday, looking for tattoo designs, I found your site. I am absolutely in awe of you!! I love them so much! In fact, Saturday morning, I went to get the tattoo my boyfriend bought me for christmas, and I got one of your fairies tattooed in the middle of my back! It was more painful than just about anything, but it was sooo worth it! I'm in love! ~Dana Burton, Louisville, Ky!
Thank you so much!!!! >^___^<
Oh wow! I'm always excited when I hear that somebody has got one of my faeries for a tattoo!
If you could email me the photo - JasmineToad@aol.com - I can post it up on my tattoo page HERE

The mermaid is GORGEOUS. Keep up the great work!
This is going to sound bizarre, but it comes from our personal experience with both houses we've lived in in Celebration plus my mom's experiences with clients' homes. You know the (usually) red reset buttons on bathroom outlets? Hit that, and the outdoor stuff will work again. When we first heard this from an electrician, we were all, "Nuh uh!" But it works.
Also! Saw your stuff in a Hot Topic for the first time yesterday (I think this was the first time I've been in a Hot Topic in a very very long time!). Too cool!
That must be what that box did, because everything is working now - yay!!!
Oh awesome! I'll need to go to the mall and see what they have now....

sounds like you all are having a grand ol' time. i think your next project should be to install a revolving door in place of your front door for all the guests you seem to always have making an appearance!
the anonymous comment was me....argh...stupid computer.
Happy to help!
I just use 72 dpi .jpgs on one disc, and send it in every few weeks with my new stuff. I write the name of the piece, my name, and the date completed on a border (I just photoshop it) at the bottom of each .jpg to clarify. I use form VA which can be downloaded right from the Copyright Office's website here in .pdf format:
For the title space on the actual form, I usually call it "Jasmine Becket-Griffith Fantasy Paintings Collection Volume #35" or whatever number I'm up to. Burn the disk, fill out the form, include a check for the $30 or $35 or whatever it says, and send it off in the mail! You'll get the stamped completed sheet in about 6 months after that.
