Finally! I got around to painting this Halloween artwork!

I spied this faux skull in a bed of blood red roses in Atlanta's famous Oakland Cemetery in 2007. They had decked out the cemetery for Halloween celebrations. 

I've wanted to paint if for a long time. I chose to do it in acrylics, as an ACEO (2.5x3.5"). I wanted the colors to be bold. Though I think at some stage I may do it as a larger watercolor.

Currently listed on eBay.

OOAK - Artist's sketchbook/art journal - Lighthouse theme.

This is another recycled/mixed media 4x6" art journal - images, writing pages, sketch pages, and watercolor paper. Many papers are unique, and OOAK. Images collected and selected and put together in this journal. The cover shows vintage images, and although not of lighthouses, it shows how much lighthouses were valued - angels to the ship captain lost in a storm.

This journal was done by private request, so it's not available to purchase. Images are old and new, papers are old and new. Some papers are over 100 years old. A fun journal, for sure!
