Today was a damp and dreary day. The best kind for settling in and finishing some new Halloween themed paintings~
The Candy Corn Princess has three little candy corn kitties. Even though the little Halloween Sprite can fly on her own, she would rather take a Crow Ride. Candy corn is strewn on the dance floor as Ms. Pumpkin and her Suitors get all the attention!
They all have some collage elements and lots of bright colors! I might just list all of these tonight! The link to my Ebay is at the top of this page~~ Have a great week~~
Halloween is one of my favorite times of the year! I love the decorations and the chill in the air! It is so much fun to create Halloween themed art.
I hope everyone is getting in the "back to school mode" if you have students in your home. I have three in college this year, all living at home and commuting to three different colleges. Everyone's school and work schedules are so different that we have to play "musical cars" in the driveway every day! Dinners have to hold warm for at least one or two each evening. There are books and laptops and cords and cell phones and itouches (or whatever they are) everywhere~but I know this will pass and one day there will only be two cars in the driveway instead of 5 and dinners for two will be a cinch--until then I enjoy having my kids all here and being involved in their day to day lives. Luckily we all seem to enjoy each other most of the time and have a lot of laughs when we have a free moment together!
These three paintings will be on Ebay sometime this week!
My sister (Tamale Cat art studio), daughter (LauraBeth art) and I recently visit the Missouri History Museum to see the Vatican Splendors Exhibit. There were many beautiful things to see, many of the items were away from the Vatican for the first time in history. The visit inspired this serene painting, Holy Child. It is on Ebay now. The link is at the top of the page. Have a wonderful week!
I have three new paintings to show you. They are all already up on Ebay. The first one is called "Peacock Princess" and features a peacock and his mate perched on the back of a princess' chair. The kitty is not happy about this! The second one, "Purple Frill" is my first Halloween themed painting and the last one,"Orchard Guard" has some vintage sheet music under the paint.
I hope everyone is having a nice holiday weekend. The weather is beautiful here in the St. Louis area! Unfortunately I have my first cold of the school year. We have only been in school for two weeks and the sniffles and sneezes have hit us~
I am a self taught artist who has always enjoyed creating anything from a flower garden to the perfect meal. Now that my children, (ages 23, 26, and 27) are all grown up, I have more time to create! I also work 4 days a week during the school year with special needs preschoolers--which I dearly love! The children in my life inspire many of my paintings.
