Happy Halloween

Today my dear is Halloween
when ghost and witches can be seen.

Door to door they seek for treats
up and down most all the streets.

If one should come upon your door,
don't make them wait or they'll be sore.

Hurry, hurry and get there quick
or else they'll play a mean old trick.

Give them candy and they'll say "thanks"
And safe you'll be from their nasty pranks.

Happy Halloween
Happy Trick o' Treating

Hugs and Kisses

Family Portrait

Hi Everyone!

You may recall that in my last post I mentioned a surprise I was going to work on for my hubby and daughter. Well, in between all the wedding preparation fun I was able to work on it and now I am ready to share it with you all...

First a little back story...
This is our family portrait. Our one and only "professional studio" family portrait.  As you can see it is not a recent one. Our sweet little baby girl was only 4 years old. It has been almost 15 years! Wow, how time flies.  Anyway, I have been begging for a new, updated one but for one reason or another it just hasn't happened. Sooooo, I thought I would take matters into my own little hands..... 
VoilĂ ! With a blank canvas, some black and white paint and a shadowing technique I have only implemetned once before here
Our brand new and updated family portrait!
I love it...especially since with this technique many of the lovely signs of ageing are not as noticeable as in a photograph, hee,hee, hee. Need-less to say my family was pleasantly surprised and they loved it too. What do you think?

A very happy Monday to everyone.
May this new week be filled with love, joy and lots of creativity!

Hugs and Kisses,
