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........

I really, really like this one. It's somewhat of a departure from your usual style...with the realistic looking wolf (thought he was from a photo at first!) and the facial features on the girl seem a little more sinister then your normal "models".

Not that I'm trying to slight any of your previous work at all! You know I'm quite fond of all your works, but it's nice, and interesting to see you expanding your artistic horizons.


Plus my thing for wolves doesn't hurt :D

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 :(
