This fun painting is call "My Broom's in the Shop", and you can view it at http://www.ebay.com/itm/140603672162?ssPageName=STRK:MESELX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1555.l2649. It's a modest $24.95 opening bid, and it's a 3 day auction. It's painted on a nice canvas with no staples on the sides, and the colors are bright and gorgeous. Check it out, and check out the Halloween Queens! Just type ahqu into search on Ebay. Ahqu stand for ARTIST HALLOWEEN QUEENS UNITE, and we are an up and coming group of artists inspired by our love of Halloween. We're really getting wound up, now that it's September and Autumn is just around the corner.
has so many people worried, my husband and I included. We live in East Texas, and things are bad here. Hubby works about 50 miles east from here at Cedar Creek Lake, and coming home from work Tuesday afternoon he saw approximately 300-400 acres on fire. Here at home, the lake is disappearing more and more all the time. And our home is surrounded by stressed, dying, and dead oaks and hickory trees. It makes me so sad. The trees are a main reason we moved out here to the country, all the beautiful old native trees. After living in a concrete jungle outside of Dallas for 11 years, we couldn't wait to get out here to such a green and shady oasis. Now our property is ankle deep in crunchy, dead brown leaves. There is no telling how many trees are going to be lost. It just makes me want to cry. Not to mention, the dread of fire. One fool with a cigarette thrown from a car window, and you can lose everything you own, not to mention the heartbreak of losing animal companions who live in the house. For people like my husband and me, that would be harder emotionally than losing a house. We love our fur babies. Anyway, I hope this disaster ends soon, before more damage is done. This is scary, folks.

This beautiful Halloween box will be listed tomorrow, August 31, for a three-day auction. This is a vintage kitchen canister, solid wood, and I've repurposed it! I don't really think "repurposed" is real word! But everybody's using it, so I will too! Ahem, back to the subject at hand. I sanded it, gessoed it, hand painted vintage-inspired scenery on it, and added a handmade, hand painted owl knob on top. It's a very generous size, too, great for holding wrapped Halloween goodies. Check it out Wednesday evening!
These are upcoming goodies on the Halloween Queens Castle Bootique, as of Sept. 1. The painting of the witch carrying the scarecrow is titled "Making Eyes". The witch ornament is actually tiny canvas, 2 1/2" square. The Day of the Dead ornie, a traditional Catrina, will be found in the Theme section of the Bootique. This is the first Day of the Dead piece I've ever done, and I had a lot of fun with it. Check out my Boo offerings on the 1rst. Don't forget!
