Bright Candles Burn Fast
$15.99 – $125.00
These words – “Bright Candles Burn Fast” – were ones I found written on the tiny headstone of a devastatingly short lived young girl, in an old overgrown cemetery down here in Florida. I wrote it down in a notebook and later re-discovered it and decided to commemorate her epitaph in this painting. I included some of the beautiful Luna Moths that have been swarming my home lately, the two figures tending to some quickly melting candles and the petals of a glowing flower. This piece I did nearly entirely as livestreams online from my studio as a live painting demonstration on my Twitch channel (JasmineBecketGriffith). Each week I’d work a few more hours on this piece, so the videos can be watched sequentially (they are archived on my YouTube channel HERE)
Original acrylic painting has sold, but we have prints & canvas giclees available with worldwide shipping as always.
- Available Product Types
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 x11″ 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
Masterpiece Limited Edition Canvases (18″x 24″, hand embellished, signed & numbered out of 5 ) are now sold out, but we have Open Edition Canvases (12″x16″ with a signed certificate at $125 each) available. All canvas 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. Both types are on the deeper/thicker gallery wrapped boards than our earlier canvases have been, very sturdy and solid, and match the profile of those that are sold at Pop Gallery, etc. If you have any questions about the canvas prints or the differences between the Masterpiece Limited Editions and the Open Editions, please contact us!
