Marie Masquerade

Preparing to paint!

Last night we were out really late with tigerpixieart and her family at Universal Studios' Halloween Horror Nights! It was awesome - the Islands of Adventure park transforms at night - they turn off all of the main lights in the park, and pump the whole place full of fog (fog machines) and cool laserlight effects, people in elaborate scary costumes, sudden explosions of fireballs, big foam machines that cover the place in neck-high foam, etc. They set up six separate haunted houses, and they even have the rides still running! It was so much fun! Carrie is really cool, and I had a great time talking with her.

Right now I'm getting ready to paint! You can watch me here on my webcam. I'm working on a huge (well 16"x20"), very detailed piece called "Green Goddess". It's going to have lots of faeries/nymphs in it (kinda like my Earth Faeries painting) with a central figure (who I'm painting now) who is sort of their Queen....... OK - off to paint!
