Hello Color and Goodnight Moon

We are just now starting to have beautiful fall color.

This one looks just like a green apple.

If you have ever been around little kids, you know the book, Goodnight Moon.
I have always thought how fun it would be to decorate a room just like the Goodnight Moon room. Well, this is probably as close as I will ever get. Unless, I finish the basement like this... hmmmm.
Anyway, there was a list of things we could have done for our school assignment, but Nino, my son, and I decided to make a pop up of the Goodnight Moon room. When we were finished Nino and Rose were so excited to play with it. I think it turned out pretty cute myself. Nino made the bunnies and many other items in the room. I think the bunnies have such cute faces!

I do have a few paintings that I am working on. I hope to finish them soon. I will give you a peak when I have them done. :)

Angel in a Cashmere Scarf

Well, my angel has something to wear finally. The day I found this angel, I knew I had to have her. I remember the look on both my kids faces when I told them to scoot over and make room for her in the cart. Ha ha She is quite large and pretty much needs her own room.

But now look at her! She has a purpose. When I am not wearing it, she gets to wear my most beautiful scarf from Angelina Accoutrement . This scarf is cashmere so it is extremely soft. Jen Sertl of Angelina Accroutrements, has quite a talent of restyling vintage cashmere. I love my scarf! Thank you Jen!

Perfect Day at the Pumpkin Patch

We went to our local Pumpkin Patch today. It was a beautiful day. We started with the Haunted House. It took a little coaxing for Rose to go in, but it got the thumbs up on the way out.

Who can resist the pony rides? Not my two.
Thank you, Mammy and Pappy!

Then, there was the corn maze, farm animals, playground, jumping things. All the stuff to make kids happy.

Ready to pick out your Pumpkin and go Rose?

What's wrong Rose?

Come on Rose, lets pick a pumpkin. We need to get going home.

(Concerned onlookers feeling her pain.)

Was there something we did not do yet?

"The Barrel Ride"

Is that what you wanted?

OK, Lets go get it!

The perfect ending to a perfect day!

Hope you all had a wonderful weekend!

Witch Portrait

This is probably my last Halloween painting of the season. I am stalling on putting it up because I really like it. The little Pumpkin baby is so cute. Both my babies were Pumpkins their first Halloween. It is like the perfect costume for a new baby. Anyway, just thought I would share this one. I guess I should figure out when I should post it because I am running out of time. I wish I new what other artists did to ensure they had a good pic for a print. I need to study that process because I would like a print of this. If anyone has advise it is welcome. What do you do to get a good print of something?

I love painting trees.

Playing around this weekend, I painted a tree using a texture base before hand. It turned out really cool.

I could not resist, more of Tamale

OK, I promise I am done now. It would be fun if she was really like this for a day. I could talk to her. We could go shopping. Laugh about silly things that have happened. Although, she might yell at me about her litter pan or stale food. Hmmm
