How's everybody doing? I haven't had much online time lately, with convention season in full force, but now I'm getting caught up and slowly getting back into the swing of things.
I'm excited about Halloween! Carrie - tigerpixieart - and her family are coming to trick-or-treat around my house. That'll be fun!
Day after tomorrow my cousins Annie & Matt are stopping by, just off the boat from London, picking up some of their stuff we've been keeping for them here on their way up to the airport.
Let me see.... what else is new.... mostly just working hard, really. Getting a lot done though, so that's good. Slowly making a dent in my email inbox.
I have a brand new painting - "Bleak Mourning." It is a melancholy, bleak, slightly creepy piece - a grieving young woman in Victorian mourning attire, standing in a desolate landscape - a funeral carriage pulled by a skeletal horse behind her. In her hand is a piece of jewelry unique to the Victorian era - a mourning hair locket - basically a lock of the deceased's hair, turned into jewelry. An odd custom perhaps, but nonetheless interesting. I painted this piece with a limited palette - slightly reminiscent of an old fashioned photo! . "Bleak Mourning" is a 20"x16" painting (acrylic on a sheet of canvas) and is up for sale on eBay - a seven day auction starting at ONE PENNY with no reserve - ending on the evening of Monday, October 29th at 5:08 PM CENTRAL TIME and you can see her here - just click below on the sneak preview image to see the full painting:
