My latest paintings are larger than I usually do! They are 11"x14"x.75" stretched canvases. For the Vampire Encounter I can't deny it was inspired just a bit by "Twilight", plus I just love Halloween and spooky stuff.

The Frida's Window Painting was inspired by a documentary I watched about her earlier this week. She is so very intriguing! She actually did live in a blue house and I had to add the unique hand earrings to my painting that she received as a gift from Picasso! These fun paintings will have a starting bid of only 1 CENT! Yes, AND as usual---FREE SHIPPING! Also, all of my artwork purchases will come with a free gift right now. Remember to find me at FINDFOLKART gallery run by Heather Galler. The paintings will probably be listed later tonight. The link is at the top of this page. It is an online gallery featuring 15 artists hand selected by Heather Galler. When you see the store front, just click on my name at the right to find all of my current listings. ALL of the listings there start at a bid of one penny!

The third photo here is of some of the cute little "art print note cards" I made. I will include two of these (with envelopes) with every purchase--The choice will be a surprise!

The last photo is something that really brightened my week! I have always admired Julie Fillo's work and she recently had a give-away. No---I didn't win, but some anonymous kind soul purchased one of her prints and asked her to mail it to me!! This was just a pure, random act of kindness! I still do not know who sent it, and I probably never will know, but the thoughtfulness and the print brought a happy note to my day! Thank You, kind soul!

I Love how the Frida turned out! And the vampire painting is very spooky. Wow. You will have to tell me how you made those cards. They look very nice. Hope to see you at the German Fest!

Tina, yes I printed 3.5"x5" prints of my paintings on Ebson matte photo paper, cut them out and "glue sticked" them to blank notecards I bought at Michael's.
