Bright Candles Burn Fast
$16.99 – $34.99
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 archival inks. A small white border is included around the printed area of the artwork. 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.
Open Edition Canvas Prints
These prints are made on canvas with archival inks and varnished with a UV resistant finish. They are gallery-wrap style — wrapped on boards, stretched over a frame and are 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. We only release these open edition canvases once Limited Edition Hand-Embellished Canvases have been sold out. The open edition canvases are on deep gallery wrapped boards. The Open Editions are set to a specific size format and there may be some cropping around the edges from the original artwork. NOTE: The watermark in the image is only for digital display and does not appear in the originals or prints.
