Halloween Fun!

What fun I had participating in Halloween and Vine this year in Petaluma, CA!! Seeing friends and meeting new collectors! I didn't get many photos, but if you head on over to the H&V Facebook page, you'll see all the show goodness! I did snap a couple and will get them ready for my next post, AFTER this weekend!

I am getting ready now for Spirits in Sanford, Sanford, Florida, this weekend, Friday, Oct. 3, for the champagne preview  and costume party (don't forget to RSVP! (407) 323-2774), $20 per person includes Sat. show, and SO much fun! And then the show on Saturday, Oct. 4, from 10 am - 4 pm, $5 admission. If you "Like" the Spirits Facebook page, you'll get all the show news and see the sneak peeks from artists participating.

And in between shows, I am listing my original watercolors on eBay still! The one above is a larger format piece, 4-7/8" x 8" least it's larger than my usual ACEO size! You can see all the painting details if you head to the listing here.

Tis the Halloween season and I love kicking it off with these two fabulous shows!! Hope to see you this weekend!


A Black Cat for Halloween Candy

Black Cat Halloween Candy Box

The EHAG Emporium is open tonight at 9 pm! My offering this month is a spun cotton black cat complete with a vintage style bottle brush Halloween tree and tiny white pumpkin. She was created using techniques from Victorian times, and all sit atop a paper mache candy box.  The piece measures 8-1/2" tall by 3-1/2" in diameter. The words "Happy Halloween," adorn the lid on the front and "trick or treat" are on the back. Perfect for a vintage table setting or to go with your Halloween antiques. Don't forget to check out the other offerings available from my fellow EHAG artisans at the Emporium!



Halloween Ride

"Night Ride"

What a thrill it would be to ride across the full moon above the city on Halloween! At least this witch has some Halloween spirit with her jack-o-lantern and her black cat to share it with! This is my latest original Halloween art card up for grabs on eBay! Click here to check it out! Dreaming of fall days from Florida!


Doing the Halloween Jig!

It's time to celebrate Halloween with a jig!! This is my latest ACEO original painting now available on eBay! Check my offerings every Sunday evening, when a new one will be listed. Enjoy the celebration!


It's Looking a lot like Halloween!

Having fun with my watercolors for upcoming fall shows! If you can't make Halloween and Vine in California or Spirits in Sanford in Florida, you can always head on over to eBay, where I list weekly small format original paintings, like this one! Thanks for taking a peek and hope to see you soon!


The Halloween Tree Original Painting

"The Halloween Tree"
An original gouache watercolor
Price: $150 • free shipping

It's the last night of October when mischief abounds! Two trick or treaters happen upon the Halloween tree. Is it alive? Who put the jack-o-lanterns out? And why is the scarecrow smiling so? Something spooky is in store for it's Halloween!!

Using high quality watercolors and gouache, I've painted the scene on 140lb watercolor paper. It measures 7"x7", and comes unframed and unmatted. It is sealed for protection and comes in an acid free sleeve.

It is listed also on the EHAG Emporium, where you'll find other wonderfully creative Halloween art from my fellow artisans in the Electic Halloween Artist Guild. Thanks for taking a peek!


It's ACEO Sunday!

A cat scampers across the path,
a full moon brightens the sky.
Jack-o-lanterns grin broadly,
and the magic of Halloween is nigh!

Head to eBay for my latest small format artist trading card size original painting going up tonight!


A Halloween Watercolor Reminiscent of Days Gone By

It's eBay Sunday, when I list an original small size Halloween watercolor painting. My latest piece is reminiscent of those vintage Halloween postcards I love so much, with curly vines bordering a Halloween scarecrow and bats fluttering above. It is the standard 2-1/2"x3-1/2" size for an art card editions and originals (ACEO), and as always, I am offering it at the starting price of $9.99. Check my eBay listings every Sunday evening for these tiny originals. You'll also find several prints of my original watercolors available too. See you next week!


The Thrill of Collecting Halloween Original Paintings

Affordable Originals for Everyone to Collect

Once again, I am offering my weekly artist trading card size paintings on eBay. Each Sunday means a new listing will go up. These 2-1/2"x3-1/2" original watercolors start at $9.99. I love offering these small pieces of art, because they allow collectors the chance to purchase one of my original Halloween watercolors no matter what size budget one might have! Take a peek each Sunday and I hope you enjoy my view of Halloween. Wishing you a great start to your mid summer!


Mark Your Calendars This Fall For Halloween Art Shows

I am once again proud to be a part of two Halloween art shows this fall!

Saturday • Sept. 27, 2014

Halloween and Vine is always a treat in northern California's wine country. Nestled in the quaint town of Petaluma, a talented array of Halloween artisans gather to share their love of all things October 31 and sell their hand made creations! I love seeing old friends and meeting new ones! It is sure to be a grande celebration once again!!

Spirits in Sanford
Friday • Oct. 3, 2014 • Evening Costume & Preview Party
Saturday • Oct. 4, 2014 • Art Show 

Spirits in Sanford will be located once again inside the Jeanine Taylor Folk Art Gallery, which makes for a truly festive Halloween art buying experience. The evening costume party makes the magic of October 31 come alive, with artisans displaying their latest Halloween creations and party goers purchasing their favorite pieces. The magical spirit carries over the next day, when on Saturday, the show offers a delighted public more Halloween collectibles ready to be purchased and enjoyed.
