Bad Moon Rising

Halloween is a most favorite holiday and Margot and I wanted to do something special this year. I found a too cute Bobbie Takashima pattern at convention this year titled "7 Naughty Witches" and we decided to work together while creating our own "heirloom" pieces.

This style of painting is sooooo out of our comfort zone! We also never get to paint together just for the pleasure of it... usually we are working!!

Here is my little moon man. He is painted on canvas which was then cut down to size and glued into the tray bottom inside my trunk. It was easier to apply this way rather than trying to paint on the inside surface while struggling with the edges. He is painted in grayscale colors - the appearance of color on this photo is due to the flash. Color will be glazed on before he is complete!

What do you create just for the pleasure of creating?
