A Sweeter Halloween

Sometimes I like the less gothic sort of Halloween, and it comes out every once in a while in my watercolors. I just listed this sweet 5x7 original watercolor painting on etsy. It's on heavy 140lb watercolor paper, unframed and unmatted, but at an oh-so-great price, and you will find it here. I'm working on more watercolors and can't wait to finish them. Sometimes I am surprised by what appears in my paintings. Maybe it's those little Halloween fairies sprinkling their October dust on everything!

And, back by popular demand, I've listed another Glittered Curious Eye Ornament on eBay. It really does follow you around the room and is perfect for those who love art that looks like it came straight from a Victorian cabinet of curiousities! You'll find the listing here.

It's never too early for Halloween, right? Happy Haunting!...Iva

Three Curious Ornies for a Third Anniversary ~ the EHAG Blog Giveaway

The Eclectic Halloween Artist Group, or EHAG, has planned a blog giveaway starting on Monday, April 6 to celebrate it's third anniversary. Since I'm a member of this group of stellar Halloween artists, I decided to create something special for the giveaway, three Curious Halloween ornaments. These vintage-style ornies are adorned with vintage crepe paper, old-time images, black dresden and fine, vintage crinkle wire in gold.

Head over to the EHAG blog, on April 6, submit a comment and gain a chance at winning one of the many giveaways! You have until
midnight on Monday, April 13 to enter. Winners will be drawn on the April 14.

Give it a try, and while you're at it, take a gander at all the art from this group listed on eBay. The group decided an art challenge would be fun to acknowledge the anniversary so the theme of "A Frightful Fete," is quite fitting for the occasion. Simply enter EHAG into the eBay search window or click here to see what wonderful creations are available.

Happy Anniversary EHAG!!
