Parties and a Tiny Painting.

It's Sunday night and another busy weekend has flown by! How is it Sunday night again already??

After dinner last night we decided to check out the Manly Harbour Village Halloween Street Party. I've always wanted to go, and Miss 5 wanted to wear her Halloween costume (Princess Bubblegum this year!). So we battled the enormous crowd, stayed around an hour to have a look at the market stalls and Miss 5 went on the mini ferris wheel. To be honest the whole thing was a bit overwhelming in general. SO many people! I think the only reason I would go back next year would be if I had an art stall there. That would be pretty cool.

Speaking of Halloween art! My competition to win my original "Pumpkinlings" painting ends tonight at midnight! Have you entered yet?


Today we went to a 5th birthday party at The Plaster Fun House! I haven't been there since I was a kid, and it was exactly how I remember it. Miss 5 painted a turtle and finished it off with glitter and a bow. So cute. When we got home I finished off a little 3"x3" painting called "Tiny Witch" and put her up for auction HERE.
Work in progress...

It's now 10:49pm, and I'm so tired, so I'll be heading off to bed...I look forward to picking a competition winner in the morning!

WIN an original painting!

It's no secret I love Halloween, so in between working on some commissioned paintings I've been sketching and painting away on this 8x8" jack-o-lantern piece. These are baby "pumpkinlings" - little baby jack-o-lanterns with bat wings! You can enter to win this original painting by entering the competition below! It's very easy! :)

Win this "Pumpkinlings" Original Painting!

I loved painting these little guys and I'm hoping to feature them in other paintings in the future.

I bought Baby A his very first Halloween outfit today, which I'll keep a secret until I can show you. It's so cute! I'm still working on Miss 5's. She wants to be Marceline the Vampire Queen

Today was Miss 5's birthday party with some of her preschool friends. Needless to say I'm pretty tired and looking forward to hitting the pillow tonight. But for now - GO ENTER the competition to win an original painting! :)
