WIPS dancing around on my table today.....

Some folk just don't like being tickled, even if it's unintentional, but others love to laugh. So you can tell who thought the paint brush tickling and pushing paint around on them was fun, and who is just a grump. I'm not sure the fella in front will get finished if he keeps glaring at me that way. I may just put him on the shelf until he has a better attitude. For now, the work continues as I get ready for another PFATT Marketplace debut for August. Will post finished work so check back soon!

A Halloween Tree

If I could I would have a tree up year round to dress up. I would start in January with a (gasp) naked tree, and add snowman ornaments, and or snowflakes. February would see hearts and Americana possibly? March, well lions and lambs of course, April could be little little umbrellas and so on, until by December the tree would be full and glorious!

Alas, my home isn't big enough for a full size tree to be out all the time, so I have three feather trees, Easter, Halloween and Thanksgiving. Of course the full size tree and several small ones come out for Christmas, but I will settle for the feather trees otherwise.

For now, it's Halloween creativity time, with a dash of a Santa or two in the works. Oh yes, it comes ever so quickly so I'm going to be working like a mad elf, to get ready before showtimes.

This little fella is available at my etsy shop by clicking on - MothersDreamRtworks

More On the WIP of the Oil Painting

Well, here I am, almost finished muddling through with the oil paints. Some parts of the painting I really like, others frustrated me. It's a learning experience for sure. I need to go sit and watch someone who paints with oils. Time for bed, I hope you've had a creative day!

WIP Trying to Learn Oil Painting

A challenge for me, I've been trying to learn the ins and outs of oil painting. Oh boy, I'm not sure I like the paints, the fumes, and the mess. I'm determined to sort that all out though, as I have friends who want to learn how to oil paint, and they already had their supplies. This is what I have going with this painting so far, and yes I'm using an instructional book to do this. There's a lot to do with this, but here's where I'm at so far. I can see I need to fatten the tops of the reflected trees in the pond, but so far it's not too bad. There's the tree leaves to fill out, the ground and foreground to complete, and then the water to add the finishing touches to. I'm also working on an oil painting from a photograph, and I can see I really need to fix the mountains in the background. I will share that later.
I hope you have a blessed day. Go and be creative today!

Spreading the Love Around

 I'm not sure where the idea for love bugs came into being, but I'm guessing it's Valentine's Day cards. Probably the cute little ones we used to give out in elementary school. I'm so glad I was little during that era, as I know I wouldn't have been  as thrilled about a Barbie or Scooby Do Valentine. I did like Scooby Do okay, but Barbie, no way!
 Back to love bugs though, this handsome little fella is completely hand sculpted with a lot of love and time. He is available on eBay
 Who knew owls like to get in on Valentines?!
Well this sweet guy does, and is available in my etsy shop MothersDreamRtworks

Autumn Serenity In Acrylics

I've always been afraid of attempting landscapes, so this is my first one in acrylics. Years ago I attempted a few in watercolor, but at the time I didn't have the eye or confidence to just go for it like I do now. It was a fun venture, but today we are going to try oils. I've never used oil paints. Well okay, we did have paint by number sets when we children, but I'm not sure that counts. This piece is available for purchase.

 $175.00 + SH Calculated by location

Apples Anyone?

It always feels so good to be back painting again! I see that this is just a tad washed out, but you get the idea. Iphone and home lighting don't always make for the best photos, but here it is. I started this painting 3-4 years ago, but it sat around here due to not being here full time. Well off Nature Guy goes for a trip to California so I decide to pull out the paints. I stumbled across this while trying to find my easel and a canvas. If you saw the "studio" you would understand why it was such a treasure We are still trying to get all moved in, but Nature Guy says we have until we die to get it done, so....

PFATT Ornament Swap Treasures

 My treasure trove of ornament goodies because I chose to be the Pfatt ornament swap queen this year. Oh! My! Goodness! Such talent we have in this group!
 We had eight ladies participate, so they sent their hand crafted ornaments to me, and I got to sort and send them new ornaments from each other. What fun this was! Stephanie Grimmond sent me this swap queen ornament, which is just adorable!
 Here's little houses she made, which I just had to have one for myself.
 Sylvia Smiser created this darling angel, complete with silvery wings and halo. I didn't want to unwrap until next year so she would stay safe.
 Rose Gilpin sent me an extra snowman, just for me! How sweet he is!
 Rebecca Campbell Miller created this darling snowbaby, and again, I will unwrap next year, but we were late getting all the ornaments gathered, so next year we all start with new ornies for our trees.
Becky Federico hand sculpted this sassy cat ornament. I'm pleased to say I own one of her pieces now as well. I have to say that picking out 4 for me was soooooo hard as there were so many delightful pieces to choose from. I hope to be able to do this again next year. I'm thinking I need a separate tree just for my PFATT ornaments.
