These two little paintings are what I’ve been working on the past couple of days. Oh, how I love halloween! The painting of the old fashioned woman holding the jack ‘o lantern is “Pumpkin Town.” Can you see the rolling fields of pumpkins growing behind the little village in the distance? and I tried out some stylized trees in a funny scale. That’s what I love about folk art. Scale? Proportion? Attention to detail? Bah! Who needs it? This is art! hehehe….
It’s friday! And do you know what that means? I wont make you wait….The giveaway winner for this week is…..Annie! Thanks to all who entered 🙂 I loved all your comments. But don’t fret if you didn’t win this go-round! My next giveaway will be posted on Monday! And it’s going to be a great one!
Now, as for art….
Then this weekend I watched Practical Magic for the first time in years, and it inspired the little painting “The Witchy Sisters.” I worked the sketch while watching the movie, and later Audrey ‘finished’ the sketch by coloring it. I need to post a photo of it. It’s hilarious!
Now that the weather has changed (thank goodness!) I am so in the mood for sweet and spooky things and all the fun that goes with autumn. Bring on the pumpkin patches! The scarecrows! The ghosts! Apple cider! Pumpkin pie! Pumpkin anything! (I’m looking at you, Starbucks pumpkin spice frappuccino….)
What’s your favorite thing about autumn?
