Hello everyone! I am finally back-thank you so much for all of the happy birthday wishes! :) I have been busy working on my paintings for the Arte de los Muertos show at Borealis Arts--the opening is this Friday! I am thrilled to say that my first painting for the show which I shared last week has sold already out of the gallery, and went home with the buyer.
I have done these two, and my goal is to get two more done before Friday-we'll see if I can do it :) It is just such a wonderful opportunity, so I want to have as much work there as possible. The one above is an 8"x10" and is going to be called "My Ancestor." I decided to basically paint a 5x7 image with a large decorative border around it.
I have not come up with a title for this one yet--again, suggestions are welcome! She is a 5"x7". I must admit that I will be relieved when I have all of the paintings done for this show-I have been a little nervous painting them since I have never had paintings in a gallery before. Next week I will begin on some new paintings for my shop.
I also did a trade last week with the wonderful Susy from The Enchanted Pumpkin. We have done several swaps now and it is always such a pleasure! I was greeted with the most adorable package:
Here are all of my treats!
Susy threw in this adorable owl she made as an extra! That was so kind of her :)
Here is my adorable little bunny, also handmade by Susy. I am a sucker for miniatures!
And isn't this the happiest little towel? :)
In addition I got two beautiful pieces of old lace. Thank you so much Susy!
I have also been busy preparing for my Halloween blog party coming up this Saturday the 16th--be sure to pop on by! I will also be doing a giveaway.
I hope you are all having a wonderful week! :)
