Les Vampires: Lanterne-Citrouille

The first in my new series of paintings called "Les Vampires" (which is French for The Vampires) - a new line of paintings that feature vampire beauties inspired by French rococo and baroque themes and aesthetics. These will also be part of my upcoming Vampire tarot/oracle deck I've been commissioned to work on, being published next year. This first painting is called "Les Vampires: Lanterne-Citrouille" (which means "pumpkin lantern") she is simply lovely! And with the pumpkin of course there are subtle Halloween-ish overtones (added to with the inclusion of my black cat Azrael!). There are also some creepy details in the rococo sofa the two sit upon. I went with a lighter more rococo palette on this piece rather than the bold/jewel tones I normally would put on a vampire/halloween painting, and I think I rather like how it turned out. My own original acrylic painting. ©Jasmine Becket-Griffith - prints are available at and*
