I've been working hard on these and they have turned out great!!!
Work-in-progress! I've been meaning to do a Vermeer inspired painting for years, and finally am now getting around to it. I got to see several Vermeers in New... York at the Frick Collection & at the Metropolitan Museum of Art last month, which re-inspired me
This painting will be a combination of elements from specific Vermeer paintings - obviously the Girl with a Pearl Earring from 1665 - and I wanted to include one of Vermeer's famous "window" scenes (he did such wonders painting interior scenes lit by windows, I hope I can do it justice), etc.
I'm not usually tooooo technical with my layouts, but with Vermeer I need precision, so I am plotting all my points out ahead of time with a ruler, counting grid marks, etc. so my lines will be straight and be clearly reminiscent of Vermeer.
Early stages yet, working on the shading of the skintones! This is going to go to the COREY HELFORD GALLERY in Los Angeles as part of their "Art Collector's Starter Kit" (love that name, lol) - group show and will debut April 1 (the show hangs from April 1 through 29). Unfortunately I can't make it to the show in person, but this painting will be there
Like all of the paintings at the show, she is 12x12" square on deep 2" cradled masonite (it should be a neat show with all those different squares all with different aritsts, but all the same size & format!). Original acrylic painting. She will be priced at $3800.
If anybody is interested in the original, please email Jan directly at firstname.lastname@example.org Just let her know you are interested in Jasmine Becket-Griffith's original "Girl with a Pearl Earring" painting for the upcoming April "Art Collector's Starter Kit" show!
We'll have prints of various types up at Strangeling.com after the official debut April 1st
Definitely Worth A Look...
My next give away up at Patreon is tomorrow night! ( http://www.patreon.com/jasminebecketgriffith ) - my own artist color proof on canvas for "Evil Queen!" Win...ner will be selected from Patreon via random number generator on the evening of Monday, February 27 at around 8pm EST. All my Patreon members of all levels will be entered automatically. Not a member? Click that link above and then click the "Become a Patron" orange button. It's a fan-based subscription and is literally only $1 to start. Other memberships get you even more goodies, discounts, free prints at conventions, previews of paintings before the rest of the world sees them, behind-the-scenes stuff, videos & more.
What's a color proof? Basically when I do a painting for the Walt Disney Company, after the painting has been scanned in, etc. Disney mails me a "color proof" on a sheet of canvas. This is for me personally to look at, to see if their printing inks are the right colors, etc. to match the original painting. It's the first time I see a printed version of the painting, it comes on a sheet of canvas marked "color proof" and it is not a product that is sold in stores, it's for my own personal internal use to check the colors. The Evil Queen is about 9"x12" cut into a rectangle. I have also autographed it just to make it more special
Since I cannot sell this piece (and neither can you, it is marked NFS Not For Re-Sale on the back) it is a very unique item. Rather than having her gather dust in my studio closet, I thought I would give her away as a unique Jasmine collectible and a piece of Disney art history to some lucky Patreon member out there! You could totally mat & frame her and she'd look just like one of the fancy canvas prints, very lovely
The colors were perfect, as always, by the way
Best of luck to you all! And again - make sure your credit card & address info is correct, valid & up to date at Patreon to be included in the giveaway. If you are not yet a member, click the orange "Become a Patron" button on my page!
