Jasmine's at the KC Renfest now! New Giveaway, ACEOs, Birds & Beasties & more

Updates from Jasmine!

Been very busy this past week!

We're getting ready to head out for the Kansas City Renaissance Festival (Details areHERE).  I will be there IN PERSON this weekend (September 26-27) and the following weekend (October 3-4) and weather permitting, I'll be PAINTING at my easel out front!  Building 251, kinda by the Joust.  This weekend is Steampunk themed, so if you come by this weekend wearing steampunk inspired finery/accessories show them to us and you can pick out a FREE 4x6 print!

I've been painting up a storm!  All of the pieces I'm currently working on are destined for my Birds and Beasties solo show opening in Seattle's Eight and Sand Gallery on October 10th (I'll be there! Details are here).  I've posted some work-in-progress photos later down in this update.  (Members in the 50+ subscription of my Patreon page here can preview the fully finished framed paintings before the show opens, clickhere for details).

I have new ACEO cards up for auction!  I only make one of each, and I always start the bidding at just one penny each up at eBay to give everybody a chance.  ClickHERE to see them all.

In other news, I'm giving away an autographed copy of my "Beautiful Creatures" Tarot set this Sunday night, picking a random Patreon patron that evening. Details below further down in this update, or on my Patreon feed here.

New ACEO Cards!
Click HERE to see them all

For each painting I do, I create a one of a kind "ACEO" Card.  Collectible tiny pieces of art (ACEO stands for Art Cards, Editions and Originals), they are miniature canvas prints measuring 2.5x3.5" - the size of a baseball card or Pokemon card.  Since I only make one card for each painting, they are each numbered #1 of 1.  I hand embellish each one in acrylic paints, they are signed, dated and the authentification information is hand written by me on the back.  Lots of people keep these in binders to collect them, some folks do beautiful jobs framing them - they are a great way to start a collection or to add to a collection once you've run out of wallspace!

My new batch of ACEO cards are up for auction here for 10 days, with bidding starting at just one penny.  Enjoy!

Beautiful Creatures GIVEAWAY
Tarot giveaway is this Sunday night!  Also we have original painting giveaways, top secret previews, discounts and more - all the details are HERE

This Sunday night I'm doing a GIVEAWAY for an autographed copy of my Beautiful Creatures Tarot set - open to all Patreon members - you can sign up here -http://www.patreon.com/jasminebecketgriffith - one Patreon supporter will be selected randomly on Sunday night smile emoticon It is open to all levels of Patreon subscribers, worldwide, even just the $1 level. In addition to the monthly original painting giveaways there I'll be doing lots of smaller giveaways like this one, definitely check it out. You don't need to do anything special to enter, I'll just be picking a member up at Patreon randomly. The Beautiful Creatures Tarot is my first Tarot deck featuring exclusively my artwork - the wonderful book is written by J.r. Rivera, he did a wonderful job. The box, book & card deck turned out gorgeous! Even if you're not into tarot, it's also a great way to get 80 little paintings - I've even seen some people just frame them and they are lovely. Also available on Amazon, and from bookstores worldwide.
All of my Patreon members will automatically get included in my giveaways - each month I will be giving away an original painting (typically small pieces, this first one is a Tiny Treasure, shown here, which will be given away October 15).  This level of subscription costs only $1.  All levels of subscription are available WORLDWIDE and I am happy to ship giveaway prizes anywhere in the world =)

At the $5 level you'll also get access to my "behind the scenes" photo feed, featuring stuff that you won't see on Facebook or Instagram.  Fun stuff from my studio, more detailed works-in-progress, pics of us setting up for art shows, Matt, I, the kitties, vacation photos, things along those lines that I don't typically share with the general public.

At the $10 level you'll get the "behind the scenes" feed, and also the 10% OFF perpetual discount from Strangeling.com  - yes, it even includes Masterpiece Editions (a $60 savings), SALE prints, any sort of print or canvas that we sell you will always get 10% off at Strangeling.com

At the $50+ level in addition to the discounts, giveaways and "behind the scenes" feed, you will also have private access to the "Top Secret" level.  This is where I have things I absolutely can't show anybody else yet (in fact you'll have to confirm you've read our short Non-Disclosure Agreement which we will send you if you subscribe at this level).  Stuff like full versions of finished paintings before art show debuts, the very first WIPs (to get your "first dibs" requests in early), opportunities to reserve limited editions before they are released, previews and announcements on private projects, and more.

Click here to see my page, the different subscription levels, the FAQ and more.  I really appreciate the support you all have given me over the years, every little bit helps, and I think this will be a really fun way to get to know you guys better and vice versa!
