Countdown to Halloween over here in Avondale Estates where it is one of the most anticipated holidays of the year! All the lawn decorations, ghosted signs, spirit awards, and then on hallow's eve, some of the greatest scary houses you can find! So inspired by sugar skulls, I created these 3"x 3" blocks that can be hung or just displayed on a shelf. They are very shimmery with the use of bronze acrylics and finished with a triple thick gloss finish. BOO!

With only 2 days to go before AutumnFest, there were a few more pieces I wanted to crank out beforehand. This being one example that is a recurring theme in my pieces, combining woodland themes and fairytale-like stories. I was thinking of doing more abstract imagery for this show, but the illustrator in me keeps wanting to have a story to paint about! Well, for now I've got a few of these small works on wood to get that out of my system. And now off to organize and get my display ready for setup tomorrow!

That long, hot summer is finally behind us, phew! Who thought I'd be saying that in October? And since we've had a few weeks of cooler weather, it's easy to quickly forget how hot it was just a short time ago. This little 4x6 watercolor piece is part of a season series and is a reminder of those long summer days I don't miss right now, but will surely long for come January.

I've been working on a series of 4"x6" watercolors that will be sold at Rag, Ribbon, Rainbow the weekend of October 16th. The theme is loosely based on my "woodland dreams" concept, basically anything that has to do with nature, forests, small wildlife and wonders or those nostalgic memories of camping as a kid, campfires, etc. I need to deliver my work on Oct. 11, so I'll try to scan as many as I can before they get sent off! Here's a recent one, titled "lil' camper".
