Description I've always loved the story of Zeus & Europa, and since it's been portrayed throughout the centuries (millennia even) in many forms of artwork, I thought I'd like to paint my own! Zeus (the god) fell in love with a Phoenician beauty named Europa. So - he does the sensible thing, turning himself into a bull and tricking her into sit on his back so that he could run into the sea and seduce her (but of course!). I went with a painting with a more sweet version reminiscent of the Rococo depictions. Also, I think cows are beautiful when decorated with flowers. My own original acrylic painting.
Jasmine Becket-Griffith, Celebration, Florida Member Since October 2008 Artist Statement My name is Jasmine Becket-Griffith. (Aka Strangeling or mis-spelled as Jasmine Beckett-Griffith). I am 29 years old and I live in beautiful Celebration, Florida. I am a full-time artist and I make my living selling my artwork. I have been selling my original Fairy, Gothic, and Fantasy artwork online since 1997.
I grow weary of the mundane world, and I am trying to slowly create my own through my fantasy artwork. I believe that with each piece of art I get out of my system, onto paper, and into your home I have done my part to make this place a more magical planet.
You may have seen my artwork featured in new lines of clothing and other merchandise being sold in thousands of retail stores across the country, in places like Hot Topic, Torrid, Target, SuperTarget, Hastings, Busch Gardens, Disneyland Paris, the Bradford Exchange, Hamilton Collection, and other stores throughout the country! Some of the paintings that I am selling here on ImageKind are the very images that will be licensed for these products. Here is your chance to own the actual artwork!
My work can be found in collections and galleries throughout the world, and am featured in the books "The Art of Faery" & "The World of Faery" now in stores! I was also selected to have my artwork appear in "Spectrum 11," "Spectrum 13," and the new "Spectrum 15"! Also be sure to check out my solo art book called "Fairy: the Art of Jasmine Becket-Griffith" as well as my NEW "Jasmine Becket-Griffith: Portfolio Volume I" solo art book! Be sure to check all of my galleries, I paint new paintings nearly everyday and plan to add them as prints here often!
