Hi everybody! LOTS of art news for today!

Tomorrow, April 13th (from 7-10pm) I will be at the gallery for my Book Signing Party (details are HERE ) come check out the new hardcover book - "Strangeling: The Art of Jasmine Becket-Griffith", and I'd be happy to sign it! Amber Logan and Kachina Glenn (my sisters, the other two authors of the book) will be there with me, so you can get it triple-signed by all three of us. Not local? You can also order by phone if you would like a copy shipped to you - in fact, if you ask them nicely, they can wait to ship your book until after Amber, Kachina & I sign it for you tomorrow.

"Alice in a Dali Dress" and the LAST "Bleak Mourning"
"Alice in a Dali Dress"
14"x18" Original Acrylic on Panel $4200 SOLD
Lt. Ed. Canvases $125 are HERE
Prints & posters available - details below
"Alice in a Dali Dress" is the title - part of my sub-series called "Alice in Other Lands" which are paintings featuring Alice in a variety of unusual circumstances, thrown into settings inspired by my love of art history (be sure to check out the other installments honoring Bosch, Velázquez, Brueghel, da Vinci and more). This of course is a bit of a parody / homage to Spanish Surrealist (and fellow sometime Floridian artist) Salvador Dali! Here we have my Alice with nods to countless Dali references - her dress of course is a reference both to the 1937 fashion collaboration Dali did with Elsa Schiaparelli as well as "Les Diners De Gala Les Canibalismes De L'automne Lobster" piece he did a bit later. Other nods to Geopoliticus/Birth of the New Man, and of course melting clocks as in the 1931 masterpiece "Persistence of Memory." Dali himself was a big Alice fan, so the combination of the two works out well! My own original acrylic painting.

Or hey - just kick in $5 and you can get your name printed in the "thank you" section of the booklet, hehe. =) If you have questions about the game or the project or how the kickstarter page works, there is a blue "Ask a Question" button at the very bottom of THIS PAGE HERE and you can ask up there!
