Angel in Lilac - with original Strangeling Frame

- by Jasmine Ann Becket-Griffith

This week's theme: Lilac

Many colours take their name from flowers. The lilac is actually a flowering shrub with blooms in shades of purple, pink, white or blue. The lilac lent it's name to the colour lilac, which is best described as a light shade of violet. Yes, I know... the colour violet also get's it's name from a flower.


Art: Angel in Lilac - with original Strangeling Frame by Artist Jasmine Ann Becket-Griffith
This is my latest painting - "Angel in Lilac" - framed & ready-to-hang - a delicately beautiful angelic fairy creature with liquid doe-like eyes. She wears a lilac gown with golden dragon motif (matches the frame!) with her feathery wings & butterflies ascending to the opening in the heavens behind her. About the FRAME: I am VERY proud of this original picture frame. My husband Matt made it out of a SINGLE PIECE of solid oak wood (environmentally selected). The frame is very ornate, SOLID WOOD - no plastic or resin/foam - this is all wood. Several of my fairy characters & faces are carved at the top along wtih some dragon designs - an ornate Neo-Classical frieze - a bit Greco-Roman looking - with amazing details. One of the most beautiful picture frames I've ever seen (I'm so proud of Matt!) I have finished the frame with antiqued gold leaf and it is gorgeous. Check out the pictures! 18" by 9" wide, original acrylic painting on masonite. Frame is solid oak with gold leaf.
