Custom Piece: Vintage Halloween Memory


  I wanted to share with you all my latest commission, and my official first Halloween painting of 2012! This painting was for the lovely Winnie, and this painting depicts a scene out of an old photograph of her as a small child outside her home on Halloween! She is wearing a little clown suit that her mother made for her, and her little white kitty weaving around her heels (artistic embellishment.)


   Winnie is a big fan of Halloween, as am I! Halloween and fall are some of my favorite seasons to paint. Of course I prefer the sweet, old timey sort of Halloween! Now I'm looking forward to doing some more Halloween painting in, I think I've got a good stock put back for Christmas (although I know I'll paint more!) and doing the gallery event on Thursday has me looking forward to Indie Emporium in late September. 


   Well, I hope you like this little painting, and above all it is my hope that Winnie will love it (I've heard she does!) and it will become a beloved family treasure! That's what I love to make! If you are interested in a custom piece, see the menu above and the "FAQ" (frequently Asked Questions) section. There I go over how I do gather info for your painting, pricing, and the options I offer. Take a look if you're interested!


   Hope you have a good weekend! It's gonna be a HOT one here. Is it October yet? :)

  2. Isn't this just the sweetest Halloween picture ever?? Yes, that is me at age 2. Heather just created the cutest keepsake from an old photo. Halloween has been a favorite holiday of mine since I was a wee thing and this wonderful painting just captures so many happy childhood memories for me. I love every tiny detail that she included. IT is a treasure and I absolutely love it!!
    Thank-you again ,Heather, for painting this fun and wonderful keepsake for me!!
