Hand-painted craft pumpkin fundraiser!

Here are this year’s hand-painted, craft pumpkins fresh out of the patch… er… off the easel!  They are for sale at my daughter’s elementary school annual Halloween carnival fundraiser.  We are big sci-fi fantasy fans here in our household, as you can tell from my pumpkin themes.  We are ringing in the holiday of magic, spooks and the supernatural with homage to Hogwarts as we await the release of two new movies from the wizarding world of Harry Potter coming out this fall!  And what is Halloween without ghosts… I know I ain’t afraid of no ghost!  Finally, for those who know me well, keep on the look out for the third and final pumpkin still primping on my work bench… something to celebrate with a latin flair!

Each pumpkin is a signed, one-of-a-kind, hand-painted original created using acrylic and oil-based paints.  The Ghostbusters pumpkin glows in the dark… Oooh!  Contact me for purchase info and a link to view even more pumpkins decorated by fellow artist moms in my community.  All proceeds go to benefit our elementary school.  Happy Halloween!

Some Houses Sprout Roots

For the last week, I have been showcasing paintings from a series I started a few years ago regarding the idea of home.  The pieces are small and made with mixed media.  Each is unique.  Mother’s Day is coming up… these are available for purchase either by contacting me here on my blog or through my Etsy site.  Need I say more?  Enjoy!

Some Houses Sprout Roots

Sweet, little, original, watercolor painting on paper exploring the idea of home. I started these paintings two years ago when my daughter entered kindergarten. They punctuate my movement from full-time motherhood to regaining significant time in the studio. These quiet, little gems offered me company in the form of contemplation. Each piece is an original, unique, one-of-a-kind with artist signature.
