Twin Witches


Can you tell I LOVE Halloween??? I'm just full of ideas & staying up waaay too late at night painting away! I can't seem to paint fast enough to get all the projects done that I want to, but that's not the point anyway is it? Painting should be relaxing & calming which it usually is. It's just hard when I'm working on one painting & thinking about the next one! I'm also WAY too particular with my lines & edges & spend extra time getting all the details just right. I've tried before to loosen up my strokes & give my paintings a freer, more casual feeling but my hand just keeps going back to its old tricks. I've decided that is just MY style so why fight it? I love the look of rough edges, dry brush strokes & shading but I'm just better with my clean edges & flat color so I'm sticking with that (for now) & maybe incorporate in some of those other qualities here & there.

Anyway ~ "Twin Witches" is up for grabs on EBAY right here! BOO!!!

Your description of how your paint sounds exactly like mine! I admire greatly people who just paint their heart away in strokes and overlays but this style does not seem to be for me... Great Halloween paintings! Take care, LuLu
