New Alice in Wonderland WOOD ALTAR, Absinthe Wood Altar, Sea Turtle Mermaid PORTHOLE, and ACEOs.... [Nov. 4th, 2008|07:19 pm]
Jasmine Becket-Griffith
Hi everyone!

Busy day today!

Matt & I have been working hard - we're getting all of your orders shipped out from over the weekend, and then we've been collaborating on some more new projects from Matt's Workshop (hehe, well - the garage at least!). So tonight I have not just one, but TWO NEW ready-to-hang "Wood Altarpieces" (an "Absinthe" one and an "Alice in Wonderland" one) - as well as the latest installment in my new line of magical "Mermaid Portholes"! Also I have three new ACEOs from my latest paintings!

Okay! First off, the first new Wood Altarpiece - we've recreated my "Absinthe" triptych - all ready-to-hang. This is pretty much in response to all of you who have been asking for physical, non-paper, ready-to-hang ways that everybody could display my altarpiece & triptych style pictures (who aren't able to purchase the original), and here we have it! "Absinthe" - READY TO HANG - this is a reproduction of my original acrylic painting on an MDF altarpiece panel. I can't stress how gorgeous this is! The perfect way to bring "Absinthe" into your home - there's a hanger on the back already. It is a high gloss permanent image (NOT a decal and NOT any sort of decoupage or paper print, it is a heat-set dyed PERMANENT reproduction on wood), on a THICK (.75" or 2cm) MDF panel which has a black finish on all beveled edges & back. It is 10"x10" in a gothic peaked altar style which can be the focus of any room or tucked away in a cozy nook! You really need to see all the photos in the auction below to see what I mean - it's pretty cool! She's up on eBay starting at just one penny with no reserve for a 7-Day auction ending the afternoon/evening of Tuesday, November 10th 6:00PM Central Time. You can see her below:



"Absinthe" NEW Wood Altarpiece

Next is the second fo the new Wood Altarpieces - VERY COOL - this is an Alice in Wonderland piece I've created into a triptych - three paintings in one Wood Altarpiece. The central portion features my "Alice in Clockwork" piece, then on the left side of the panel is a detail from my "Alice in the Pool of Tears" and then on the right side of the panel is a detail from my "Alice Descending" piece. So you get three Alices in one gorgeous 10"x10" glossy MDF altarpiece panel. It's all ready-to-hang, just like the other one, and is up on eBay for a 7-Day auction ending the evening of Tuesday, November 10th 6:03 PM Central Time. You can see her below:



"Alice in Clockwork" NEW Wood Altarpiece


Next up! A new "Mermaid Porthole" - this time featuring my lovely "Sea Turtle Mermaid". Matt & I have finally (after a lot of thought, and trial & error!) developed a fantastic new product - a series of magical "Mermaid Portholes" - truly like having undersea porthole windows to a beautiful ocean world! READY TO HANG! This is a reproduction of my original acrylic painting on a 8" round MDF panel. It features my "Sea Turtle Mermaid" - a beautiful mermaid with a spotted tail and a big majetic Sea Turtle friend - they're swimming in a sea of deep blue, with fish and coral reefs setting the scene. I can't stress how gorgeous this is! Glossy almost like glass, the colours are vibrant! The "porthole" frame is VERY LIGHTWEIGHT - it is NOT METAL (it is a cast resin-foam composite) and there is NO GLASS, so you can hang it easily on any wall without worry or exra braces - there's a wire hanger on the back already. Not at all heavy as it looks, I promise! It is a high gloss permanent image (it is a heat-set dyed PERMANENT reproduction on a wood/MDF panel) set into the 12" porthole frame. All in all it is 12"x12" and quite thick - 2" - all a one-piece frame (no, it doesn't open, sorry!). Perfect for a fantasy themed room, or a nautical/marine look, or also great in a bathroom or boat!! I plan on making more of these - they would look great lined up or in a grouping (like you're on a boat or in a submarine!). Again - you really should see all the photos in the auction below to see what I mean - she's neat! She's up on eBay starting at just one penny with no reserve for a 7-Day auction ending the afternoon/evening of Tuesday, November 10th 6:06 PM Central Time. You can see her below:

Now for the new ACEOs - for more info about ACEO cards, how I make them & what they are (basically tiny hand embellished one of a kind canvas prints, trading card sized and highly collectable), consult the individual auction descriptions - they are each one of a kind and are awesome! All are starting at a penny, with no reserve for ten-day auctions ending on the evening/afternoon of Friday November 14th, 4:08PM - 4:18PM Central Time

To see them ALL together visit the ACEO section of my store here (they may not have "popped" yet in the store, so if this link doesn't bring them up, just click on all of the individual direct links below!):
