New ALICE Painting, MINI, Prints, ACEOS & More [Dec. 5th, 2006|10:16 pm]
Jasmine Becket-Griffith
I have been so busy! My word. I always forget how busy the holiday season is for us - wow.

I finally got away from the more work-work side of it all to get some new art done though! It's a LOT of stuff, so bear with me =)

This is the THIRTEENTH painting in my "official" Alice series (I did some earlier Alice pieces, but these are the primary ones) - I think it is my best in the series so far. Check it out below:

"Alice and the Queen of Hearts" ORIGINAL PAINTING



This was way too fun to paint. Usually I paint my girls to be cute, pretty, etc. so it was kind of a challenge to make a sneering, creepy older lady like the Queen of Hearts. Her dress is a bit mad, but fun to paint.

Also - I was able to squeeze in a "MINI" painting - a 5"x3" tiny original acrylic painting on a sheet of canvas - she is at a FIXED price of only $50 - this is the only way you can really get an original painting from me for that price, and these tend to sell instantly, so grab her if you can!! She is called "Sad Little Red Wing" and you can see her below:

"Sad Little Red Wing" ORIGINAL MINI PAINTING

I will try to get some new MINI paintings done very soon, before the holidays (I have gotten a lot of requests). So those of you who collect the minis might want to go to my ORIGINALS page CLICK HERE and re-fresh it periodically to keep a watchful eye out the next week or so ;)

Next I have a few new #01 Limited Edition Hand Embellished Canvas prints!

"Dark Procession" 15x6" Lt. Ed. CANVAS PRINT #01

"Time Flies" 11x14" Lt. Ed. CANVAS PRINT #01

"Queen Elizabeth and an Ermine" 11x14" Lt. Ed. CANVAS PRINT #01

Next up are the ACEOs - for more info about ACEO cards, how I make them & what they are, consult the individual auction descriptions - they are each one of a kind and are pretty darned neat.

I am starving! I need to go make some food. Lots of work to catch up on tomorrow =/ I'm sorry I haven't been very chatty here at LiveJournal (I'll try to catch up soon), we have just been so swamped - commissions, shipping, licensing, business stuff, legal stuff, blahblahblah. The not-so-fun side of the art business.

At least now we have pretty Christmas decorations up - that makes me feel better. I bought our plane tickets to fly up to Kansas City for Christmas to be with our family - it was almost $1,000 - sheesh! Usually when we fly up it's only $200-$300 total roundtrip for us both. I guess it's because of the holiday season.

Speaking of which - I need to find some time to get some Christmas shopping done - eek! I have a few presents bought already, but many more I need to get. Every year I swear to myself I'll get it all done early, but I never do. Being on the "supply" end of the holiday rush as well makes it all the more hectic - I get caught up in the worry of my customers' Christmas shopping and whether packages are in on time, etc. too. So far everything seems to be going pretty smoothly though thank goodness.

Bah humbug, I need to go fix dinner! Enjoy the new art!

Boy that queen of hearts looks very mean! But the painting is wonderful, as always. And the card, how you got it to match EXACTLY is beyond me!

Thank you Becca!

Believe it or not, I think that playing card was the hardest $&#)@&@)* thing I've painted so far! I thought it would be simple - I got a real playing card out to look at while I painted, and simplified the design in my head a little - but once I got started it dawned on me that it was a hard thing to paint, ugh. Took me hours! I'm glad it turned out looking okay - the card itself took me longer to paint than Alice!

Lol, I should take you up on that! ;P

I think I'll probably get most of it done online, that's the easiest way for me to squeeze in shopping at 2am, hehe.

*giggles* I wouldn't mind.

I think a lot of people shop online now. It is an easy way to shop and you don't have to worry when you are doing it. =)

Your Alice paintings never fail to make me all warm & fuzzy inside.

I am SO happy that you put Dark Procession on sale.. yay! Now I can get one to go in my new apartment XD

And I can totally relate on the holiday rush thing. It's crazy for me now too. Between working, packing, my birthday, and all the school stuff.. it's like an explosion in my brain once you add in Christmas.

Anywho, deep breaths.. you'll get everything taken care of.

Thank you so much!!

I'm so bad, I didn't even get Christmas cards out this year. I will need to do it next year for sure - I'll start in September if I have to, lol.

I love your work. Any plans to branch into any other fairy tales like sleeping beauty, or snow white, or repunzel?

Thank you so much!

Let me see - I've got a Sleeping Beauty, two Rapunzels, and a couple of Snow Whites here on my website:

Most are older paintings though - I'd definitely like to do some more fairytale paintings in the near future!

Evidently I had missed those when digging around the site. I love the Red Riding Hood in Autumn. Makes me think of the new Evanesance video (Call Me When You're Sober).

Thank you mom!

I really should - I'll have to see if I can coax my camera to work, the last several times it wouldn't take pictures (it's broken). If I can get some pics I will definitely post them!
