Happy Halloween........and Thank YOU!


The above painting is one I did way back in 2000 but it's one of my favorite paintings I've done. It's on an oval piece of wood. Every year when I get it out for the season I always wonder why I don't paint more often.

I want to share a few things I've received recently, starting with a Halloween ornament that I won in a raffle over at EHAG blog.It's a great blog for all things Halloweeny.

It was made by Melissa Valeriote better known as the Holiday Queen.If you LOVE Halloween, you should definitely visit the EHAG site and Melissa's blog. They are both filled with absolutely wonderful Halloween art. Thank you Melissa for creating this cute little witch!

The next item is one I received from the Pink Artists Block Party Raffle.
I was thrilled when I opened this up. The artist Doris Arndt is such a wonderful mixed media artist and I couldn't believe that I actually was the lucky winner of a mixed media painting by her. Here's her website link also.

The next is an ATC that I received yesterday from Cheryl Strait. Thank you Cheryl, I love it. Cheryl had recently purchased some ceramic heads from me on etsy and she was so kind to send me an ATC.
Cheryl makes lovely jewelry, go check out her blog and her etsy. (she's having a sale!)

I know I promised a sampling of things I've been working on, but these other pieces needed to be shown first.
Hopefully in the next day or so I can finally show some works that have been 'brewing'.
Until then....happy trick or treating!

Hey, Cathy!!! It's soooo good to hear from you, and look at all of the beautiful things you've received in the mail recently.

Believe it or not, I was thinking of you this morning, and said to myself, "Self, you need to send an email to Cathy." I've pictured you up to your ears in fabrics, textures and beads, happily creating - your version of Heaven!

Can't wait to see what you've been up to. I adore your Halloween painting. You SHOULD paint more - it's charming! Love & Halloween Hugs, Terri xoxo
