Original Jasmine Becket-Griffith Masterpieces in the Secondary Market
Sometimes my collectors decide to update, refresh, or rearrange their collections or need to sell a painting of mine, and as a courtesy I am happy to authenticate these and provide the links to where these original paintings are for sale! Even though these are not my listings, I can guarantee that these are indeed the actual original paintings being sold on the secondary market to the public by the original purchasers. This week there are three of my all-time favourite paintings up for resale (what a great idea for a tax refund!):
Absinthe Mermaid - this is the ORIGINAL 24"x18" acrylic painting itself! Ready to hang, on 2" deep cradled masonite. Gorgeous! Click HERE to see the eBay listing for the ORIGINAL Absinthe Mermaid painting for sale. The seller is also including one of my 2012 Calendars featuring Absinthe Mermaid as a bonus (the calendar is OUT OF PRINT and is truly a collectors item and is completely sold out everywhere in the world).
A Certain Slant of Light - this is the ORIGINAL FRAMED 24"x18". One of my best - she appears on the cover of my Portfolio III book. The delicate golden frame is beautiful on this original painting. This is definitely the original painting itself and I can happily authenticate this.

Diana in the Forest - this is the ORIGINAL FRAMED 33"x29" (BIG!!). Another one of my best - and the frame on this one is one of the coolest frames ever - a very unique arch shape.
