A Midsummer Night’s Dream

$13.99$125.00

Might be my favourite painting I’ve ever done – “A Midsummer Night’s Dream” – certainly one of my largest and most complex. Inspired of course by Shakespeare’s “A Midsummer Night’s Dream” – one of my favourite plays! Queen Titania is featured most prominently, her jealous king Oberon has convinced Puck (depicted here as a classical Cupid-like figure based a little bit off my nephew Fox) to use a love-potion made from magical violets to cause Titania to fall in love with actor Nick Bottom (who has just been magically given the head of a Donkey). Follow all that? All the other faeries are out in this Midsummer’s Night forest scene – a procession leading into the twilight as the faeries turn into luminous moths. You can seven see a mermaid and a classical dolphin-fish as a nod to the whole Oberon/dolphin/mermaid reference. A lot of classical references hiding in this piece, actually! The magical glowing lights really do almost look like they’re glowing, but no – this is a hand painted piece with no lighting effects, hehe, done the old fashioned way – an original acrylic painting on wood.

Limited Edition Canvas Prints are SOLD OUT. However, we have now released the Open Edition Remarqued Canvas Prints – they are truly the next best thing. They are the same high quality canvases stretched on boards & ready to hang, but are open edition. This means that they are not numbered, not dated, not signed by Jasmine, not embellished by Jasmine in paint. They are however remarqued with metallic ink on the front with the official JBG seal/remarque (as shown in the photo), and come with a Certificate of Authenticity signed by Jasmine herself. The open edition canvases are shaped a bit differently than the sold-out Limited Editions, they are 12″x18″ and are on thicker stretcher boards, so they are a bit deeper. Open Edition Canvases ship from our Kansas location.

Glossy Photo Prints

All Glossy Photo Prints are printed on a glossy photo paper with Canon Lucia archival inks and signed ON THE BACK by ME, the artist. Small prints are printed on 8.5×11″ sheets and large prints on 13×19″ sheets, but the printed area will reflect the odd dimensions of the painting itself. When you select the print size and type that you want to purchase, the Printed Area Dimensions will appear below your selection. Please note the dimensions to make sure that the print you select is a size that will work for your needs. We cannot provide custom print sizes at this time. What you see offered is what is available.

ABOUT THE CANVAS PRINTS:

The original painting and the Limited Edition Hand-Embellished Canvas canvas prints are now sold out, but Open Edition Canvases are now available. These are the next best thing to owning a Lt. Ed. Canvas. These prints are made on canvas with Canon Lucia archival inks. They are wrapped on boards and stretched over a frame and shipped ready-to-hang. The canvas sides are printed in black, creating a natural self-framing effect, so you don’t have to purchase an additional frame if you don’t want to. The entire piece is also painted with a UV varnish and then heat set for maximum protection and longevity. They are truly beautiful pieces and it is often difficult to tell them apart from the originals. We only release these open edition canvases once the 25 Limited Edition Canvases have been sold. The open edition canvases are shaped a bit differently than the sold-out Limited Editions, they are 12″x18″, and are on deeper/thicker gallery wrapped boards than usual, and match the profile of those that are sold at Pop Gallery, etc. The Open Editions are set to a specific size format and there may be some cropping around the edges, refer to the photo of the remarqued canvas above (not the primary print photo but the secondary image, showing the canvas with the metallic JBG remarque for specfic reference).
