Carnivorous Greenhouse Triptych & New Canvas Prints [Mar. 28th, 2008|07:34 pm]
Jasmine Becket-Griffith
Hi everyone!

I have a new beautiful, very special painting for you - another amazing collaboration between myself (the artist) and my husband Matt (the framer/woodcrafter) - a stunning Renaissance altarpiece-style wooden triptych! This is my BEST yet (if you ask me) - the most elaborately designed piece so far. A gothic Greenhouse filled with carnivorous plants! Also I have the #01 Lt. Ed. Canvas Prints for Rose Fairy, Pink Spotted Mermaid & Koi Pond Mermaid.

"Carnivorous Greenhouse" is the new Original Painting. It is a "triptych" - which means that it is actually three paintings - this one is divided by copper/patina painted wooden and resin mouldings/frames (I painted them myself!) - a sort of "3 in 1" type of piece. There are little architectural details - columns, a window, etc. that really make this piece look like a forgotten gothic Victorian greenhouse! The center panel features a beautiful dark haired girl, wearing a dress inspired by a Venus Flytrap!. Above her you will see an ornate window looking out into the starry night sky. The girl stands amongst crumbling bronze urns overgrowing with Carnivorous Plants! I've always been fascinated by Carnivorous Plants and when I found out EBSQ was holding a Carnivorous Plants show, I had to create this special painting just for it! Both the left and right hand panels feature striking Pitcher Plants, and a variety of other creepy plants crawl through the scene.... My husband Matty custom handcrafted the panel & frame out of wood and resin! It is very lightweight wood and can easily be hung on any wall. It is quite large - 24" wide by 17" at the peak - and about an inch or so thick on the columns. 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! It is READY TO HANG and is really stunning, finished with a glossy varnish. "Carnivorous Greenhouse" 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 Monday, April 7th at 6:13 PM Central Time. Click on this sneak peek to see the whole painting....
