Friday plans

Good morning!~
Well, here it is friday, the end of the week. I hope you have some fun planned for the weekend.
Also, thanks so much for all your niceness in the last couple of posts. I am feeling better about things. It also helps that every day more little bulbs sprout up, the weather warms and the sky gets springtime blue. It's almost here, and as much as I love the quiet hibernation of winter, the arrival of spring is always such a happy change.

I'm working on a couple of paintings right now that have utterly nothing to do with springtime ;) isn't that always the way? On my Audrey Eclectic facebook page I was chatting with you all about whether you like the spooky or sweet art best, and overwhelmingly you all said spooky! So I thought it was high time to add a little spookyness to the repertoire, don't you think? You can't go wrong with crows, right?

Well, I've got some house cleaning to do and a few errands to run, and then I'll sit down to paint. If you haven't been in to check, I've added several new original pieces to my etsy shop as well as several new prints. Hope you stop in to browse!

Have a good weekend,
~H

  1. You know what's funny? Paul absolutely loathes crows. Any time we see them in a parking lot or on the lawn he can't help commenting about "those nasty birds." I rather like them! I think their glossy black coats are beautiful. They look like Victorian lawyers...or undertakers.

    I hope you have a wonderful weekend! We've been busy the last three weekends, so I'm looking forward to a nice relaxing couple of days at home, watching old British movies, reading British mystery novels and going for walks in this amazing weather!

  2. Crows definitely add spookiness. Remember Alfred Hitchcock's. The Birds?? I think they are all illustrated as black birds and that story is flat out scary! The other thing I associate spooky with are chandeliers with dripping candles and heavy red drapes on the windows in a parlor. Then there are the full moon nights with wind blowing the rest of the fall leaves off the trees. And owls can sort of be spooky two with big bright eyes on a bare tree limb. Can you tell I have too much Halloween imagery emblazoned on my brain?? Enjoy your weekend!

  3. @ Lauren- Oh I think crows are very dapper! It probably wont help Paul that a grouping of crows is called 'a murder.' ;) but I like that they're dark and beautiful.
    A lazy weekend sounds very nice! I find those are the best.

  4. @ Winnie: I see you're a halloween fan as well! Its such a pretty season, a little dark, but in a good way if you make it that way. I've seen The Birds several times, its such a classic! Always makes me a little nervous of birdlife after I see it though ;)

  10. This looks amazing! This is so perfectly spooky. I can't help but like both spooky AND sweet. Spooky though... well it has such an interesting character. Though your Little House girls are very, very sweet, and I love them as well. Can't choose, shucks.
