The longest night of the year... and then the light slowly returns.
A little bit dark, a little bit spooky...

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 firstname.lastname@example.org
Only 150 days to go until Halloween!

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.

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!

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!

I took a break during the long cold wintertime to reorganize and plan new things for 2021.
Like I did early last year as the pandemic was just beginning to force-change our ways of socializing together, I stayed home and kept busy in my studio, creating a series of paintings that sort of reflect my outlook these days. Most of the paintings took on a rather surreal fantasy style, a distinct departure from my usual Halloween/spooky themed stuff.
"Matter and Roses" - acrylic on parchment - 9x11 inches
Oh don't think for a moment that I've switched camps, not for a hot second!
"She is made of Moon and Star Dust" - acrylic on parchment - 9x11 inches
Just have enjoyed flexing a different creative muscle these days. Don't worry, I'm a Halloween girl through and through!
