New Mermaid TRIPTYCH, Canvases & Important Vacation Info [Feb. 18th, 2008|06:23 pm]
Jasmine Becket-Griffith
Hi everyone!

I have a new beautiful, very special painting for you - another simply amazing collaboration between myself (the artist) and my husband Matt (the framer/woodcrafter) - a stunning Renaissance altarpiece-style wooden triptych! And this one features a lovely mermaid with octopi & squids - very cool. This is definitely one of my most magnificent creations to date, so you are in for another treat! Also I have the #01 Lt. Ed. Canvas Prints for Mildew, Nixie & Cemetery Mist.

***PLEASE NOTE***
A quick head's up - I've been called out of town briefly in a few days - not a big deal - leaving on Wednesday the 20th and back home on Monday the 25th. I will be back home in plenty of time before any of my new auctions end so bid with confidence as there will be NO delays. If anybody wants to place any NEW website or eBay store orders though - or who have outstanding orders not-yet-paid-for - be sure to pay before 6PM Eastern Time by tomorrow Tuesday the 19th if you would like me to ship before I leave, on the 20th. Otherwise - NO HURRY - I will ship all orders out when I get back after the 25th. If anybody is at all concerned with any current or future shipping times this week or need something by a deadline, etc. - email me asap, I'm very flexible =) I'll probably have one more art post before I leave, too!

This almost looks like something you'd see in a Renaissance or Medieval art museum - much like an old altar piece. It is a "triptych" - which means that it is actually three paintings - this one is divided by copper/patina painted wooden mouldings/frames (I painted them myself!) - a sort of "3 in 1" type of piece. It is called "Mermaid with Cephalopods" - (cephalopod is the name given to animals like squid, octopus, etc.) - and it is simply gorgeous (three panels in all!). The center panel features a beautiful dark haired mermaid with a shining green spotted tail, with a cuttlefish and a nautilus!. The left panel features a cute big eyed squid, and the right panel features a painting of a magnificent octopus. It's all done with a murky aqua background giving the piece a feeling of being underwater, and the corroded-coppery colour of the frame evokes the idea of forgotten underwater metals. I am so happy I am able to create works like these, and by collaborating with my husband and his workshop, I truly have made my dream a reality. I am very proud of this painting. It really has to be seen in person to appreciate it! My husband Matty handcrafted the panel & frame/moulding out of wood! I then hand painted all of the copper & patina details on mouldings/framing myself - it is so cool! Yes the "frame" (attached to the panel to form the border & triptych is included!). It is READY TO HANG and is really stunning, finished with a glossy varnish. It is about 24" wide by 23" tall in the center - original acrylic painting on wood (lightweight, easy to hang, around .5" - 1" thick with the framing). She is up for a 10-day auction on eBay starting at just a penny with NO reserve - the auction will be ending on the afternoon/evening of Thursday, February 28th at 5:16 PM Central Time.
