A Midsummer Night’s Dream

$16.99$125.00

Might be my favourite painting I’ve ever done – “A Midsummer Night’s Dream” – certainly one of my largest and most complex. Inspired of course by Shakespeare’s “A Midsummer Night’s Dream” – one of my favourite plays! Queen Titania is featured most prominently, her jealous king Oberon has convinced Puck (depicted here as a classical Cupid-like figure based a little bit off my nephew Fox) to use a love-potion made from magical violets to cause Titania to fall in love with actor Nick Bottom (who has just been magically given the head of a Donkey). Follow all that? All the other faeries are out in this Midsummer’s Night forest scene – a procession leading into the twilight as the faeries turn into luminous moths. You can seven see a mermaid and a classical dolphin-fish as a nod to the whole Oberon/dolphin/mermaid reference. A lot of classical references hiding in this piece, actually! The magical glowing lights really do almost look like they’re glowing, but no – this is a hand painted piece with no lighting effects, hehe, done the old fashioned way – an original acrylic painting on wood.

Limited Edition Canvas Prints are SOLD OUT. However, we have now released the Open Edition Remarqued Canvas Prints – they are truly the next best thing. They are the same high quality canvases stretched on boards & ready to hang, but are open edition. This means that they are not numbered, not dated, not signed by Jasmine, not embellished by Jasmine in paint. They are however remarqued with metallic ink on the front with the official JBG seal/remarque (as shown in the photo), and come with a Certificate of Authenticity signed by Jasmine herself. The open edition canvases are shaped a bit differently than the sold-out Limited Editions, they are 12″x18″ and are on thicker stretcher boards, so they are a bit deeper. Open Edition Canvases ship from our Kansas location.

Additional Details

Glossy Photo Prints

All Glossy Photo Prints are printed on a glossy photo paper with archival inks. A 1/2″ white border is included around the printed area of the artwork for all prints with the exception of Fine Art Mini Prints which are cropped to a 4″ x 6″ size exactly. 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. 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 slight cropping around the edges from the original artwork.

Masterpiece Edition Prints

Each Masterpiece Edition is hand-embellished and signed by Jasmine. Please allow 6-8 weeks for delivery. We first have to make the canvas prints, ship them to Jasmine to hand-embellish, return them to our fine art printer to be stretched, packed and then shipped to you. This process is rather time consuming, so we appreciate your patience.

Shipping

Masterpiece editions: Please allow 6-8 weeks for delivery. Each piece must be printed after they are ordered, varnished with a protective coating, hand embellished by the artists, stretched and packed for shipment. This is a labor-intensive and time-consuming process. We appreciate your patience and understanding.

Open Edition Canvases: Please allow 3-4 weeks for delivery. Our canvases are coated with multiple layers of high-gloss UV-protective varnish which requires extensive dry time before the canvases can be stretched and packed for shipment.

Glossy Fine Art Prints: Please allow 2-3 weeks for delivery.

International shipping times can vary depending on your country’s Border Customs practices.

NOTE: Some items may ship separately.
