Earlier this week I finished this painting for my friend Patricia with three witches representing her and her two daughters. She wanted to painting packed full of Halloween goodness, and I hope I delivered! From ghosts in the cemetery to crows, owls, bats, moons and pumpkins, this painting is packed with spookiness!
I love autumn things and Im so excited to see pumpkin flavored things coming out-- room sprays! candles! Now I'm just waiting for the lotions and the coffee. Why cant it smell like pumpkin all year round?
Well, this painting has arrived safely in its new home and now it's on to my 'big and epic' plans for the Autumn Gathering party. I've had a few bloggy friends ask if we'll do a blog hop too, and I'm up for it if you are :) the more the merrier!~
I am still taking requests for commissions but if you have been thinking about having one done for Christmas, these next few weeks will be the prime time to do it. In December I've got 2 craft shows and as I'll be 8 or so months pregnant by then, I'll be slowing down to enjoy the holidays and prepare for baby's arrival.
And speaking of babies--- look at this little face? Doesn't he look so sweet? Well, he's got himself into a big fix-- about 30 minutes after I snapped this picture of him looking in from the front porch, this little kitty decided to climb the biggest tree in the whole yard---an old oak that I'd totally believe was planted back when this house was built in 1916-- and now he's stuck. We've called and cooed and begged. He just howls down at us as if he was plunked up there by space aliens with no idea how he got there. Even the cat across the street has come over and called for him to come down.
Surely, surely, he will eventually get motivated to do it himself. There is no way we can reach him, he's a good 20 or so feet up off the ground. This cat stirs up so much drama, you'd think he was a girl ;)
Well, back to arting and hoping that he comes down soon....hope you enjoyed seeing the painting and have a wonderful weekend!~
