Happy Halloween!

I just hope I get a few trick or treaters this year, or else my back side will look a lot like this ladies.

My Studio

Someone asked me last week why I have never shown a picture of my studio on my blog.  I thought to myself, because it's a mess!  But, then I thought, who cares.  Probably lots of artists have messy studios.  At least I hope they do.  Anyway, here is a picture of my workspace, I did tidy up a bit.
I have a big bay window that my art table sits in front of.  So, I have lots of nice light when I'm painting or drawing.  I have a desk because I have to act like a business owner sometimes.  I own a small greeting card company called Melissa's Art Inc.  Then behind my desk is my computer and printer.  Oh, and I have books, lots and lots of books.  I love books!
 That quilt hanging on the wall is one that I made.  I'm very proud of it.  That's why it's on the wall.

Have a nice weekend everyone!  M.

Lets go to the Pumpkin Patch

Here is a little painting of my daughter on a visit to the pumpkin patch.  She is 27 now, so this was a long time ago.  But, in my mind I can go back to this time any time  I want.  Which is kind of nice for me.
This was done in watercolor on 140 lb paper.  I also used my new wonderful brushes.  Boy, I really needed those.
