5x5 canvases and a pumpkin carving!


Here are a couple of 5 x 5 canvases I did last night. I sealed them this morning with beeswax and I must say.....they are yummy! :) I forgot how fun beeswax can be.


I just have to share this, since I'm a proud momma and all ♥

My oldest son, Derek, has always loved Halloween! He, along with his 3 kids and his wife all dress up for the occasion. It's just so cute! I'm hoping to get pics and will post them next week.

Have a safe and happy Halloween weekend everyone!
Thanks also for your well-wishes. I'm finally feeling back to normal :)

Wonderful paintings, the colours are so harmonious and the little birds placed like that look as if they're singing to each other!

I can always count on reading my RSS feeds on my IPhone and finding another beautiful painting by you. Doesn't beeswax smell amazing???? I love using it. I put the painting in my oven on 300 just until shiny, and it comes out so clear and beautiful. The pumpkin is incredible . Is your son an artist, too?
