New "Strawberry Picker" Original Painting, Mermaid with Cephalopods & other Wood Altar Triptychs, [Mar. 13th, 2009|07:33 pm]
Jasmine Becket-Griffith
Hi everyone!

Been busy painting around here! Working on some new projects for the Bradford group, and also painting new paintings to show off at the Celebration Spring Art Festival. Some really big ones that should be awesome.

Matt & I have been EATING BANANAS for the past couple of weeks. One of the banana trees in our back yard has ripened and gave us dozens, over a hundred, bananas. We've been picking them off over the past couple of weeks but the past three days have been crucial as they all turned solidly and fully ripe. We've been eating them nonstop. Finally last night I took the last few dozen off and pureed & froze them for recipes in the future. Otherwise they'd start falling off the tree and rotting probably!

Okay, art time!

I have a NEW original painting - another on a WOOD/Log - "Strawberry Picker" - a cutie! In addition I have three of my Wood/MDF Altarpiece triptychs - SO cool - and one is a brand new design - "Mermaid with Cephalopods" (as well as "Absinthe" and "Alchemy Angel" - two favourites!). And everything is up for auction starting at just one penny! Also, just a head's up - my eBay store's 25% Off Everything Sale is still on, so check out the deals before the sale ends Monday night at the stroke of midnight Central time..

"Strawberry Picker" is the name- - and she is a cutie! A rather spring-time-y painting with a new-grass green background. I love strawberries, and I eat them every day. So does she! Big eyes, sparkly blonde hair, and a glistening strawberry (HUGE, or maybe she's just tiny!) in her arms. It's one of my WOOD pieces on an actual slice of basswood log complete with bark! It is an environmentally selected natural log slice that I have painted and varnished. This is an original painting - acrylic paints on about 1" thick wood - 9" high by 6.5" wide - Matt has added a hanger on the back, so it is READY TO HANG! No frame needed! She is up for a PENNY auction at eBay - going for 10 days ending on the evening of Monday, March 23rd at 6:12PM Central Time. Yes this auction really is starting at a penny, so everybody can get a chance at her - click below to see:

Next the new Wood Altarpieces - the first is one you haven't seen before - featuring my "Mermaid with Cephalopods" painting! There are three wood altarpieces up for sale today (each starting at a penny) in all we've recreated my "Absinthe" triptych, "Alchemy Angel" triptych, and the "Mermaid with Cephalopods" 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! Each 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 auctions below to see what I mean - they're pretty cool! Each is up on eBay starting at just one penny with no reserve for 10-Day auctions ending the afternoon/evening of Monday, March 23rd at 6:00 - 6:06PM Central Time. You can see them below:
