Happy Halloween!πŸŽƒ

drawing cats for mom, Halloween October 31, 2019

Inktober ends today! And there was joy in Mudville.

Here is today’s Little Witch & friends plus all the ones from 10/22 to yesterday.

I followed the prompts this year and using them gave me ideas that I would not have thought of on my own. It gave me ideas for introducing new characters. I’ll have to use prompt generators more often.

This weekend I’ll be closing the studio to pack. John and I are moving to Florida. It’s a bittersweet move and one that was caused by a job reduction for John. It wasn’t planned but we sensed it was coming and prepared. We’ll miss some things here, but we are looking forward to new adventures. At least we had one more October here before we moved.

Enjoy!

Inktober Week 1

It’s Inktober…….again. Like an endless loop on Groundhog Day.

I am a week behind with my postings but that’s ok because I figured it’s easier on your in boxes, lol.

I am working on three simultaneous daily tasks. These are done every day just to keep the creative juices flowing.

One is my daily postcard to mom. I am combining the Inktober prompts with my postcards and I am adding color with Arteza brush pens.

I am including the back of the postcards so that you can read what I sent my mom.

Day Prompt – Ring

Day 2 Mindless

Day 3 Bait

Day 4 Frozen

Day 5 Build

Day 6 Husky

Day 7 Enchanted

Back to school

Here is another “Little Witch and Kitty” post. I don’t know if I will be posting these every day since October is in a week and I may going gung ho on a mixed media project.

Today I remembered to photograph the actual back of the postcard…hopefully you can read it without me having to transcribe it.😊

For those of you just tuning in, these postcards get mailed to my mom who lives in assisted living in another state.

Yesterday was the first day of Autumn

This post was supposed to go out yesterday.

John and I have been very busy going through all of our belongings to reduce what we have, then putting it out for yard sales. It’s been taking some time and it pulls me away from my desk. I still create daily but I keep getting pulled away from the technology. Hence the lack of posts.

The Little Witch and her kitty have returned. They have been doing lots of things since last autumn. The Little Witch has been gardening and growing herbs and mushrooms. She’s been studying herbology to understand the healing and potion properties of plants. Kitty has been helping, usually by knocking over flower pots chasing wildlife and flipping pages in textbooks.

I mailed this out to my mom yesterday with a little story on the back and stuffed it in an envelope before I realized that I meant to take a photo of the back so I would remember the story. Oh well. Mom gets her own version of the story.

It’s August

My show was up for a month and a half but regretfully, it’s over. It was a lot of fun.

It was on exhibit at the Patchogue Theatre for the Arts. We get a lot of great shows at the Patchogue Theatre. For those of you that didn’t see it, it was whimsical and charming.

Now that it is no longer hanging, I will share some photos of the exhibit. This is the lobby when you first walked into the theatre.

The two end cats are portraits of my mom’s cats. They are 24x 30 and the two middle pieces are 30×40.

On the back wall of the theatre, there 9 other pieces. These were along the corridor to the interior seating of the theatre.

Sadly, I forgot to take a photo of the one in at Roast. I’ll have to see if hubby took a photo of that one.

Painting au jour

Here is another recent painting for your viewing pleasure…..

It’s a collage/mixed media piece. 12×16

Here is a quick sketch I did this morning using the Sktchy app on iPhone.

The young man had a scrunched up face and it made me laugh. He was sketched in a drawing box that I have reserved in my morning pages.
