Red Riding Hood! [Nov. 1st, 2006|09:27 pm]
Jasmine Becket-Griffith
We had a great Halloween last night! We bought tons of candy, and ran out for trick-or-treaters - there were lots of them.

We walked around town a lot - great weather, lots of fun. Stopped by foxmagic's house for awhile - he was getting a ton of trick-or-treaters there as well.

Today I have been painting my hands off - and have finished a new piece! The new painting is pretty fabulous, if I do say so myself! Inspired by the timeless fairy tale, combined with the beautiful autumn season now upon us, it is called "Red Riding Hood in Autumn" - a big 16"x20" acrylic painting on a sheet of cotton canvas - it shows a Red Riding Hood as a little gothlet wandering in a beautiful autumn landscape of dead leaves - she has a magnificent wolf as her companion - not looking too "Big and Bad" right now - click below to see:

"Red Riding Hood in Autumn" NEW ORIGINAL PAINTING



I know, I've painted Red Riding Hood four times now, lol, but hey - I like that story! =P

My eyes are still bothering me a lot today, I hope that medicine starts working soon =/

Oh yes - one of the companies I use for hosting images is undergoing maintenance right now. So - some images on a few of my eBay auctions, and a few other places may be going up and down periodically throughout the evening. www.strangeling.com will not be affected. Hopefully everything will be patched up by tomorrow.

Oh yes again - some of you have been asking about the commissioned painting you saw on my webcam the other day - the one wit all the kitty-cats! I have finished it, and the client has given her blessing for me to offer it as canvas prints and prints, so in the next day or two I will have them available =)

Good night everybody! I'm going to go "rest my eyes" for awhile........

Thank you!! >^__^< I know exactly what you mean.

You'll probably like the commission I just did too - I'll post that perhaps tomorrow - it's kind of a similar vein, but with a lady and all of her cats. I really enjoy painting animals.

Awesome painting Jas!

Sadly, again...I wish you'd stay out of my head...lol. I started this piece below about a fortnight ago, but haven't finished it due to working on other pieces and mostly rebuilding my new web-site.

Great minds think alike...

Oh Jasmine, you've really outdone yourself with this one!! Of course, I always love when you paint animals, but the girl is outstanding, too! I wish I could afford to buy this one for myself!!

Thank you Kayti!

Unfortunately I'm not a candidate for Lasik surgery, even if I had my lenses corrected, my astigmatism is so bad I'd still need to wear glasses or contacs on top of that, so it's not worth it for me =/

Beautiful!!! I really love the sepia look of the background, great contrast with Red Riding Hood! She looks sneakier than the wolf!
Hope your eyes feel better that sounds miserable :(
