Ahh, it’s feeling like Autumn today! (Yesterday was miserable, so let’s not talk about that) I thought I’d do a little photoshoot with Anna, a book, the fireplace, and some old fake logs. Oh and why not a chicken! It’s been a while since I involved a chicken in a shoot. Kittens kept photo-bombing the shots, but that’s ok.
Unfortunately, I can’t decide which I like the most, so I had to upload them all.
Sometimes when I’m thinking of ideas for a particular thing, such as Thanksgiving, this happens. I normally don’t paint these ideas, but this one wouldn’t stop drawing my attention.
Halloween is coming super fast now! I’m pretty sure we’re going to start decorating inside and out since we broke down and bought some mums and pumpkins. Our driveway pumpkins didn’t survive the blight this year, although the gourd plants are still green and seemingly trying, I think it’s too late for anything now. Very sad.
But on a happier note! I created a new Halloween ornament today: the mummy cat! I was trying to think of something I actually don’t even have in my Halloween paintings (yet, but I will now) and that was a mummy cat. I think it came out really cute!
I had this idea that my Martha Stewart glitter would be amazing inside bubbles. Turns out, it’s too heavy, or sharp, or something and it didn’t work. So I think I’m going to have to look for pre-glittered bubble liquid, this exists right?
When I found out that bokeh was created when the bubbles popped, the idea of glitter was suddenly less interesting. =P
