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 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!).
