A little bit of Halloween fun

I used to decorate the house up when the kids were little. It was fun. But so far this year this is the extent of my "Halloween decorating." Hm. I need to go pull out "Witchy Poo." The season just isn't complete without her.

Pumpkin and Glass

Perhaps you've read the same thing I recently read in one of the art magazines. Some artists don't paint "orange" pumpkins for the sheer reason it is considered "seasonal" art. Makes sense. But I love orange. Give me a yellowy-red orange and it makes me feels all warm and cozy. My husband carried home this little gem and presented it to me like it was a diamond ring. I gushed all over it. See! Warm and cozy.

Life Model 1

This is my result of the first day at a new class over at Calartinst with Mark Schwartz. Life painting with a nice length of four hours and, of course, I loved every minute of it.  Omg holding the same pose that long with just a few stretches. Oooph! I would never want to do that! I never did catch her name, although the others in the class called out hello to her. I do wish I had begun with a few colors rather than (ivory) black and (titanium) white as she had beautiful long, red hair and was wearing some bright turquoise earrings.
Titanium dioxide is used in paints, of course, and paper, plastics and..... wait for it..... toothpaste. Makes me want to run out and buy the natural stuff.
Here's a link to Mark's blog Check out his drawings. wow
