Dragon con and Pirates!

Off tomorrow to Atlanta for Dragon con, I've got an artists bay but not a table so I'll be free to roam the convention. I'll be running around in pirate/gypsy costumes with my pirate hubby and girls :)

Looking forward to CJ Bloomers panel on Mythic arts and of course the Pirate Party! Hope to see you there!

(any orders from my shop will be shipped as soon as I return next week!)

Cheers me hearties!

Alice in my garden

My birthday was in June, and my hubby and girls gave me the most special gift, a beautiful Alice statue. The best part was how they wrapped up clues and sent me on a scavenger hunt all through the house to find her. Right now she is braving Tropical storm Fay the picture shows her on a sunnier day!

And here is wonderful link from Ulla for those of you who are brave of heart and Alice fans a version not to be missed! Thank you Ulla!

Fit for a Queen

What a confection! My youngest daughter Savvy is the proud owner of this lush crown. My dear friend Michelle made it for her (Michelle is an artistic wonder without a web presence ... I need to do something about that!)

The crown is the type of glorious piece that every time you look at you see something new. I wish you could of seen her face when she received it!

btw.. any comments you leave I'll be sure to share with Michelle, maybe I can convince her she needs to start blogging! :)

Oh yes, I know I'm a little early. I just love Halloween and my little witchy girls so much I couldn't wait to start painting them. Here is little Wisteria out walking Ash and Soot, can't you just hear the leaves crunching under their feet (and paws :) ? The original is available in my etsy shop.

I'm also working on a series of small (ACEO size) paintings of ghosts inspired by the fairy tale Bluebeard.. but more on ghost stories later!
