Wow- [Apr. 18th, 2003|09:12 am]
Jasmine Becket-Griffith
I've been waking up incredibly early and well rested! This is very nice - I feel a lot more productive.

I've been bombarded with requests for larger paintings lately! With my spacious new apartment I think I will definitely start doing some larger pieces. I'm planning on doing some more Fairy Tale pieces (in the same series of my "Snow White and the Apple" painting). There are so many good fairy tales I'd like to paint - I'm going to look through my Grimm's Fairy Tales book and pick some!

First though today I need to hit the post office and the bank and the grocery store (I'm so happy I can walk to all three, they're all within two blocks). I have a lot of things to mail, to deposit, and I want to buy some kitty treats (I'm trying to fatten up my little Quan Yin, hehe).

After that though I will begin painting! I've also started the latest of my "Poison Fairy" series - featuring the notorious Psilocybin mushroom...

At the rate I'm going I might even have time to post my vacation photos and update my website (I'm on a roll!).

Unlike you, I've had a very late start to my day and I feel behind already! Instead of fooling around on the computer I should be out getting things done! ;)

It's so nice to wake up early feeling good and rested! Especially if your a night owl! :)

Quan Yin is your tiny girl right? My mom has a tiny cat. She's almost like a dwarf cat. Her name is Pepper but I call her stumpy. Hehe!

Your Snow White painting was so wonderful! I can't wait to see what you do next.

Yes - Quan is my little tiny girl! She usually weighs between 3 and 4 pounds, but lately she's been weighing closer to 3 than 4 (I think she's a little nervous from the move and from being left alone while we were on vacation). I bought her a bunch of kitty treats for her to have while I distract Azrael (who has gone from 5 lbs up to 7 lbs in just a couple of months since he was fixed!). She is munching on some Fancy Feast right now =)

I bet that's it. She was probably really stressed with all the packing in your old place, then the move and then you had to leave her for a few days all alone in the new apartment. Poor Kitty! I'm sure she'll be fine now that things will be calming down. She knows you love her! ;)

Hehe... Psylocibin, huh? The most deadly of the shrooms, but also the most fun...er, did I say that? =) They GLOW under a black light. VERY pretty!

Re:

RIGHT ON! I love subtle little things like that.. You know only ones that KNOW will pick up on that one, lol. I can't wait to see her! You've got to do some rainbow colors in there somewhere. Wings maybe? Shrooms are known for their Kaleidoscopic vision "ability" so to speak...

I've got the figure and the mushrooms painted so far - I might do some rainbow-butterfly type wings, or maybe a rainbow dress - or maybe some rainbow hair (or maybe all three!). We'll see...

Re:

Oh MY GOD! Rainbow hair. That would be really pretty! All three would be even better. Hehe... she should be playing with imaginary bubbles. Don't ask why...=) Now I REALLY can't wait to see it! Too bad I'm not rich enough to be able to afford your art =( Maybe one day....
