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!

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. 

I hope you have the chance to come to one of these shows. They are great preparation for that last day in October! See you then!

Getting Ready to Teach My Online Workshop


July 16 is just around the corner, and I'm getting ready to teach my Halloween Witch Lighted Theater class at ArtfulGathering.com

You will learn how to assemble low-watt light assembly to light up all the special details we put inside the theater. I made getting the light supplies easy, by offering the light kit in my Etsy shop. 

We'll use recycled items to create the majority of our theater. And if you are a Halloween fan like I am, you probably have many of the supplies already in your art stash!

Plus, if you don't have a porcelain china doll head,  I will show you how to substitute the witch's head with one made of paper! We will have fun and you will learn lots of new techniques!

Hope you join me! Register at ArtfulGathering.com. Look forward to seeing you in class come this July!!

You'll learn lots of tips and tricks, along with the technique I use to create a spooky theater you can plug in and light up all year long! So why not treat yourself and get into the spirit! Also, if you can't find a vintage porcelain china head or some of the supplies, no worries! I will give you lots of options for creating your witching hour theater. Let me know if you plan to join me! I look forward to it!
