“Pandora” – a Work-in-ProgressJasmine Becket-Griffith
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.
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.
