Happy Father's Day! -

 

Wishing all the loving Dads out there a very Happy Father's Day!
 

A father need not be solely traditional in appearance or manner. Cheers to those who march to the beat of a different drum!

Kitty Halloween Shindig! -

 Like I say every springtime when the heat and humidity begins ... keep thinking of Halloween!

                         Kitty Halloween Party - by Ellie Gee, MacabreWebs - copyright 2021

I've always loved vintage Halloween-style cats. Part scary, part mischief, the way Halloween should be!

This painting is my take on that, with several different cats all gathered together for some fun and shenanigans. And I've also been transfixed by cats playing fiddles, for some reason, and added one in center focus of the group.

Acrylic paint and ink on heavy multi-media paper. To purchase a copy, please email me at macabrewebs@yahoo.com 

Only 150 days to go until Halloween!

'It was always Sara!'

 Happy Springtime Greetings everyone!

When you think about your friends, you are always able to pick at least one who has that special ability to get things done, to easily gather crowds around them, and to make some happy magic happen!

'It was always Sara' is my ode to the scores of wonderful, imaginative, strong, happy-at-heart women who conjure up the love and magic in their everyday lives, affecting all around them with a sense of positivity. That's what it's all about!

One of many acrylic paintings I've worked on over the past few months as I gear up for Halloween 2021. 

Prints are available!

Of witches and mice and cool cloudy days...

 On this delightfully chilly morning, I took a revisit to one of the most favorite characters I've created in recent years.

GrimZelda was an undeniably colorful product of my imagination, a conglomerate of various female villains all rolled up into one image, sculpted from several types of clay (mostly Sculpy but also air-dry paper clay). As with all of my characters, she had a back story leading up to the inclusion of the tiny protagonist character of Wee Mousie, also a Sculpy creation. Their story is still partially done; I really need to complete it and have it published.

I always felt that female villains in particular had a sympathetic background that needed to be told so that we could understand their descent into villainy. True, some could be construed as pathologically and irretrievably evil, but for the rest, certain key elements and experiences in their formative years may have been the key cause that led them to their contemptible lives.

And thus wraps up my morning of pop psychoanalysis, lol! 

Now, back to creating HALLOWEEN goodies.

Only 192 days to go!

We're just batty! - - -

 As in, "Batty for Betsy" - which is the name of my latest painting this week.


Acrylic on parchment paper. 8x10

 

See, told you that I was forever a Halloween girl. 

I may venture on the odd occasion into a new uncharted territory of styles, but I always return to my one true favorite love.

By the way - only 211 days 'til Halloween!
