The Pumpkin Queen

I finished her! :)

The Pumpkin Queen summoning spirits on Halloween.
Watercolor and white goauche. 8 x 12"

This is my Halloween painting for the year. It's a little more obvious than some of my others. And yes, it was inspired some by A Nightmare Before Christmas. Hope you like her!

2 New Bracelets!

"Autumn In Copper" bracelet I finished this last week sometime. It is done in a tubular herringbone stitch in size 11 antiqued copper and dark copper metal seed beads. It is completed with antiqued copper findings, branch toggle clasp and with dangle charms made of Swarovski crystal beads and leaf and pine cone charms. It is great for the Autumn season! The beaded rope is about 8mm thick and the bracelet measures about 7.5" around. It's meant to fit the wrist loosely.

It is for sale HERE!

"Black Iris" bracelet

This one is a little older, but I forgot to post it here. This dark and lovely bracelet is also made in a tubular herringbone stitch with size 11 seed beads in matte black and silver-lined purple. It is finished with purple Swarovski crystal beads and then followed by a black lucite flower bead cap and another smaller crystal. Finally there is a matte black toggle clasp. The beaded rope is about 8mm thick and the bracelet is about 7.5 inches when closed.

It is for sale HERE! There are also more pics of it there. :)

I should have my new Halloween painting done in the next couple of days! I'm really close to being done with it.

And unfortunately, no luck on the contact lenses. They were worse than ever! :(

I'm working hard on my Halloween painting! I hope to finish it in the next few days. All I have to work on is the pumpkin queen; I have the background completely done! :)

I got my newest precription glasses yesterday, and I think I may be able to get used to these. I hope. They still seem a little weird right now, but I'm hoping I'll adjust. I'm still waiting on my new contacts to arrive. I don't remember if I mentioned before about my problems with my previous 2 trial pairs. But the first time, the right contact (for my astigmatism) was all bent up when I opened the package and when I rolled it open it never regained the right shape and had a tiny tear in it. I had barely touched it, I was so gentle with it. Anyway, I had to call and have them order another one. A week later I got that and the same exact thing happened. So I am sick to death of all the problems I'm having! I called again and asked for a different brand and made an appointment to get my glasses rechecked because I didn't think that those were right either. I came in again, described my problems and got checked again. The doctor changed both the glasses and the contacts prescription again. And like I said, I got the new glasses, but I'm still waiting on the contacts. I really don't think this should have been this big of a deal. I first went and got my eyes checked over a month ago now, and I'm still not sure that they've gotten it right yet. These glasses seem better, but I'm not 100% sure about them yet. I'm starting to think that next time I may go somewhere else.

New Jewelry and Sketch!

I made a couple of rosary-style necklaces recently! They are both for sale along with a couple of other hand made jewelry in my etsy shop! This jewelry making stuff is just too addicting! lol :)

Need to go paint now...

And I have just the thing to start on! I was going to wait until the painting was finished to show this, but I can't wait. I have to share the sketch! :) This is going to be my Halloween painting for the year.

The Secret Door -- large version!

This is a commissioned, larger version of the original ACEO painting. It was ironic that I was contacted about doing a larger version of this since I was considering doing one anyway. I don't usually like to redo artwork, but this one seemed like it should be big. :)

Watercolor and white goauche. 8 x 12"

Limited Edition 8.5 x 11" prints available HERE
This edition is 100 prints.


Also Now Available!
If you liked my beaded "Twisted Heart" bracelet and necklace, I made a new bracelet (the original I kept for myself ;) ) so they are both now available in my etsy shop! They are sold separately. Click the picture below to see them both!

I got my new trial pair of contacts, and... one had a tear in it. So since it was the astigmatism one, they didn't have a new one available there and had to order a new one... so I have to wait another week for that. I'm getting rather sick of the whole thing. And I still need to get my glasses fixed with a new prescription for the astigmatism, which the doctor was going to write when I came back for the follow up with the new contacts. but because of the tear, that will have to wait longer too. *sighs* The new contacts seemed like they would have been the right prescription too, but the tear made things from the corner of my eye look blurry/distorted, mainly when light hit it. So pretty much nothing has been solved there yet. Fortunately, I haven't been getting so many headaches. I must be getting somewhat used to squinting. lol
