Work-in-progress – Snow White and Rose Red

snowwhiteandrosered2014WIP

Work-in-progress! This painting – “Snow White and Rose Red” is for my long-awaited Fairytale Oracle deck project with Lucy Cavendish & Blue Angel Publishing. As Snow White and Rose Red is about two peasant girls, this is intentionally a nod to William Bouguereau, 1800s French painter who is the master of peasant-girl paintings, hehe. These two sisters are shown early in the story (not to be confused with Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs – a completely unrelated story of a character with a similarly translated name, ahem), Snow White will have light clothing and hair, Rose Red will have darker, redder colours, and this will correspond with their two forest friends – a cardinal bird and a chickadee! Still many, many hours of work left.
If you are interested in the original painting, contact me at [email protected] – I am taking names for the “first dibs” list for direct sale from me, the artist. This original painting is acrylics on a 16×20, panel, will come in a nice woodsy frame, and will be priced at around the $6000 mark depending on how long it takes me to finish. Collector inquiries will be given preference based on chronological order of contact, please put the words “Original Painting Inquiry” in your subject line so we are sure to see it!

Work-in-progress! This painting – “Red Mask” is for an upcoming group show at the Eight And Sand Gallery in Seattle, WA – the theme of the show is “Red”, and I’m just now working on the bright RED facepaint mask of this lovely girl. Still got several hours of work to do on this one, but she is coming along nicely. The “Red” show will run from February 8-March 9 at Eight and Sand Gallery in Georgetown, Seattle. If you are interested in the original painting, contact the curator Alex at [email protected] – let her know you are interested in being on contact list for “Red Mask” by Jasmine Becket-Griffith. This original painting is acrylics on an 8×10 oval, will be in a silver frame and will be priced at $2200. While I won’t be able to attend the show opening in person unfortunately, I will however be coming to Seattle on February 21-23 for FaerieCon West, so if you are in the area definitely check out both events!

Work-in-Progress: Stilleven V

stilleven5wip1

Work-in-progress! The fifth painting in my series called “Stilleven” (Dutch word for “Still Life”) – a series of works I have planned that feature “deconstructed” elements of still lifes inspired by the Dutch master painters of the 1500-1600s, along with faeries & nymphs (of course!) If you are interested in reserving the original painting, email me at [email protected] and inquiries will be indexed according to the order of response. Still lots of work to do on this one – fruit, flowers etc…. Price will probably be in the $3500-$3900 range depending on how long she takes to finish, she measures 11×14 and will be in a glossy black ornate resin frame. I will also have prints, posters & canvas prints at strangeling.com soon.

Pandora Work-in-Progress

Work-in-Progress for “Pandora” – Myths & Mermaids Show

A work-in-progress for “Pandora” – almost done! The background alone has taken me days on this one, very detailed. Pandora is a new painting based on the Pandora’s Box myth that will be debuting at my Myths and Mermaids show (Dec. 14-15 at Pop Gallery at Downtown Disney at Disney World here in Florida – details are HERE). In my illustration, she’s already opened the box and behind her will be a lot of creepy Brueghel / Hieronymus Bosch sort of medieval monsters and demons, but the last critter out of the box will be “Hope” – which I have chosen to represent as a glowing butterfly.

This piece will be priced around $6400 and will measure around 32″x36″ framed in a huge elaborately ornate frame – acrylic painting on a 16×20 panel. Prints & Lt. Ed. Canvases will also be available at and after the event. Be sure to get on the “Jasmine VIP email list” to be notified when this original painting (and other new originals available from the Myths and Mermaids show!) is available to purchase.
You can join the list by calling Pop Gallery at 407-827-8200 or emailing [email protected] and simply ask to be on the VIP list for Jasmine Becket-Griffith Originals .

While Pop Gallery does not pre-sell or reserve unfinished artworks, all available originals will be announced via email after completion first to the “Jasmine VIP email list” and then sold on a first-come, first-served basis. You must be on this Jasmine VIP email list if you would like to receive purchase information prior to the general public release before the show.

“Pandora” – a Work-in-Progress

Pandora - Work-in-Progress

A work-in-progress for “Pandora” – a new painting based on the Pandora’s Box myth that will be debuting at my Myths and Mermaids show (Dec. 14-15 at Pop Gallery at Downtown Disney at Disney World here in Florida) – I’ve spent the past day or two “sketching” her out in paint (I sketch in paint thinned with water, rubbing away what I don’t like, usually in grey & brown tones), and I’m just now starting to flesh her out with opaque layers of thicker peach & white tones for her skin. She’s already opened the box and behind her will be a lot of creepy Brueghel / Hieronymus Bosch sort of medieval monsters and demons, but the last critter out of the box will be “Hope” – which I have chosen to represent as a glowing butterfly. If it all turns out as planned, it should be a pretty great painting.
