As promised, I completed the 9"x12" Halloween watercolor I showed in my previous post. Compare the "before" in my last post to the finished painting here. I've added layer upon layer of detail. I just love getting lost in these! I've listed it on eBay, and will be selling prints soon! Let me know if you are interested!
Also, I'm so excited to be featured in two of Stampington & Company's magazines this month. I wrote an article, "Away to Halloween Town," which featured my Halloween Hot Air Balloon for the Sept/Oct. 2010 Vintage Halloween issue of Somerset Studio. That issue also included a Haunted Masquerade beeswax collage I created.
Next, two of my projects were featured in Somerset Holidays & Celebrations 2010. My whimsical hot air balloon Christmas ornaments graced the pages of the magazine, as did my Halloween Witch's Shoe project. I am thrilled with both!
If you are planning on attending Tinsel and Treasures Folk Art show, Saturday, Sept. 18, I'll be signing copies of Somerset Studio's Halloween issue. So much happening now! Wheeee!
I am a mixed media artist living in the oldest, continuously occupied city in the nation, St. Augustine, Florida! I love to create with paper mache and paper, as well as paint watercolors. Halloween and Christmas are favorite holiday inspirations, as is nature. Remember, each day is a gift.
