Lighting the Way - new painting - also piggies [Jul. 15th, 2008|06:50 pm]
Jasmine Becket-Griffith
Hi everyone!

Today on my bike ride through the jungle/swamp by my house, I saw a total of 11 wild hogs (feral pigs, that live wild here in Florida). Usually on that trail I see them now, but usually just a couple of them, 3 or 4 if I'm lucky, but today I saw several families, totalling 11. It's hard to believe they all live so close by. They were all oinking a lot, hehe. Saw only one alligator, but he was pretty good sized (watch out piggies!).

I've been watching the E3 coverage on G4 TV - I'm excited about the Animal Crossing Wii announcement!

I have a great new original painting to show you!

"Lighting the Way" is her name - measuring 16"x20" - original acrylics on sheet of canvas. It's a moody scene of a little goth fairy/angel (with SHORT hair, which is rare for me!) taking a nighttime walk. She has an elaborate lantern which is lighting her way in the dark. She has a beautiful dress and dark feathery wings - it's a peaceful, yet evocative scene, and truly a lovely painting. This original painting is up on eBay starting at just ONE PENNY with no reserve for a 7-Day auction ending the evening of Tuesday, July 22nd at 5:42PM Central Time. You can see it below:

I've got another particularly cool piece in the works now I should have finished soon - it's a book illustration, WITH a "Strangeling Frame" that is my best yet.

But that's all for now .....

Jas that is such an awesome painting. The lighting is incredible and I particularly like her shoes ^^ The subject is something we all can relate to, if only we had a lantern so beautiful :)

Hi, I saw some of your work at DeviantArt. Now it happens a lot on DA that people steal the work of great artists and then say they creatd it by their own. so I thought I'll just check if it's really you that added the pictures on DA and not someone else.
here's the site: http://vampirecupcakes2012.deviantart.com/

Oh my - LOL - thank you for letting me know!

Definitely not me, and definitely NOT with my permission. I will contact DeviantArt right now.

I do think it's pretty funny that they still say ©Jasmine Becket-Griffith slapped on them, hehehe.

Lighting the Way is gorgeous, Jasmine! All these new paintings you're churning out are making me weak in the knees.

And wild hogs? Wow! Do they ever bother you? Maybe I've just heard too many horror stories about boars, but I would be so scared.

new painting

Nice painting. Draw and paint one of a fairy on a beach in florida. Or one with little pigs and alligators, walking along that path.
