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........

You know I love when you paint animals! Great work on the wolf! I don't remember little red riding hood to be evil though? hehe... but so cute! I love her expression and outfit! If I was the wolf, id be running away, she looks like she about to blast someone with witches magic lol

Thank you so much, Shelley! I'm so proud of this painting, I am happy that you like it =)

Yep! Prints will be available very soon. I brought some with me to the renaissance festival this weekend and sold a TON of them, this piece really seems to have struck a chord in people (including myself!).

Thank you David!

Another person told me that too, I should go YouTube the video and check it out (I'm not really an Evanescence fan though).

Thank you Heather!

It's kind of a similar type of face to one I did a few years ago called "Ice Fairy" :

I really like this one :) I love how you did her face, the colors and the trees in the background. I feel like I could fall into that forest.

I hope your eyes feel better soon. That's really horrible :(

awww...

Well, sweetie... I'm sorry to hear that your eyes bothered you.

On a better note, the piccy I clicked on... is AWESOME!

Your art is so amazing and so emotionally elegant.

I'll be a fan for life, although, I hate to admit that I don't have money
to support you by buying your art.

As soon as I get money, that'll be next on my list. A person like you
deserves money for her art. ^_~

Re: awww...

Thank you so very much!

Kind words and compliments are support too, and in a lot of ways that is just as satisfying to me (not too sound cheesy!). Thank you again =)

Your Art

I was in Asheville, NC yesterday and ran across a fairy postcard "Starry Night Fairy" that I loved, and as I was searching the web today, I ran across more similar fairies, so I am assuming they are all your artwork. I've really been thinking about getting a fairy tattoo, and so far, your style is my favorite. I don't know much about copyrighting, but would that be okay with you, if I choose to get the tattoo? Feel free to e-mail me at AprilDrake@hotmail.com with a response, or just post it to my LiveJournal. Thanks!

Re: Your Art

Don't worry Jasmine, I've had conjuntivis before (many times actually) and though the drops are annoying the redness and irritation should clear up soon. I hate wearing my glasses too! Remember to use a fresh pair of contacts afterwards or you'll get reinfected. On that note, better clean your keyboard and mouse (your fingers can spread it).
I absolutely love the red riding hood in this painting, she seems so full of character.
