I can't imagine what my life would be like if I didn't create.
If I stay away too long from making something, I tend to get withdrawals. Not sure if that's only me. Do you ever get that way?

My artistic journey so far has been filled with meeting so many amazing artists out here in blogland. The on-going support and love you have all given me has been more than I could ask for. I really appreciate it. Thank you all so so so much!

The weather here has been nice and chilly. Just the way I like it. It has even inspired me to get back to my love of stitching. Hopefully, I can share it all with you soon. The difficult thing about having more than one artistic passion is that I get side tracked very easily.

I could be happily stitching away, but when a sketch is calling out for
me to paint her... well, you can guess the answer to that.

For more info on this angel painting, you can find her now on ebay.
(sold, thanks!)

Thank you for your sweet visit! :)

Primitive Angel

Hello lovely bloggers! Here is my latest painting.

distressed for a primitive appearance.

Hope you guys like her! She is up for bid now on ebay. (sold, thanks!)

Thanks for coming to visit! Wishing you all a beautiful weekend! :)

Feeling Goth

Hello Fabulous Bloggers! Thanks so much for your sweet visits
to my blog! I really appreciate all the special comments you leave.
Here is my latest painting.

When I finished her up, I wasn't sure if she was just a
goth girl or maybe even a vamp girl. I'll leave the decision
up to you. Either way, I love the way she turned out.

I added a crocheted flower and brad to decorate her hair.

Here is a before and after. As you can see, I started out wanting
her to be an angel when I sketched her, then I changed it up as I
began painting. You can now find her up for sale on ebay. (sold, thanks!)

Also, a big Congrats to Bettina of for winning my collage
painting from my Halloween group blog yesterday! Yay!

Creative Blessings,
Lisa :)

Hello everyone! I wanted to say thank you to all of the special partiers

too. Thankfully, it worked out in the end. I do apologize for the inconvenience, but I did tally your entry if you emailed me or
sent me a message on etsy. I so wish I could give all of you a
prize, but I could only choose one. Thanks again to you all!

Halloween Party 2010

Hello and Welcome to my Halloween Party hosted by the talented Vanessa of A Fanciful Twist . This makes my second time participating
in the Spooktacular Extravaganza! Feel free to make yourself nice
and comfy. Enjoy!

The story of Matilda is still quite unknown. Her spirit and
adventures, in my heart, they have grown.

Matilda was born many moons ago, others guessing her
age, a game she loves so. Young beauty before you, you see
in her eyes, she'll tell you her age and you'll be surprised.

At daylight her world is not what it seems, blinded by light,
she lives in her dreams. Enchanted by music, her song has no
bounds, the breeze brings her lyrics, sweet melodic sounds.

She lives in the moment, dancing everyday, a stormy sky above will
not stop her play. A worn out old painting, was hidden around, now
in my hands, since she can't be found.

The cracks in the painting, up close I can see, the age of this painting,
but that cannot be.  Until there is more of Matilda's story to be learned,
I'll dance all day long, singing at every turn.

In the midst of my search of Matilda's life at every source, I did
get inspired with some creating... of course!

This is my Halloween Party Giveaway, for all of you to see. I created
my first Halloween mini album out of chipboard. I used a few altered
prints from my original paintings and went to town. This mini is filled
with mixed media including sweet and spooky embellishments.

Here is a slideshow of the complete mini.

Everyone has the chance to win this Halloween mini album, just leave me a comment in this post. The winner will be chosen using a random number generator.

Polls Close:

11:59 pm PST on Friday, October 22, 2010

Winner will be announced on Saturday, October 23rd.

Thanks so much for stopping by to visit my party! Don't forget
to visit all the magical participants on the list here.

Also just in case you were a little more curious about Matilda,
her story does not give any evidence so far about her being a vampire.
But I thought I would play with her photo and make her into one

Good Luck & Happy Halloween!!!

Lisa :)

It's been hot here. I enjoy the weather much more when
it's a little colder. I can surely live with the high winds, the fog
doesn't bother me a bit and rainy days seem to always make me smile.

That's why living in San Francisco has always been perfect for me.
But when we get days like the last few we've had here...
long and very hot... it gets a little difficult for me to function.

Surprisingly, I did manage to finish a new painting.
Like I mentioned on my last post, I was working on
a couple of things, but those had to be put on hold for
a bit. My muse led me to create this one instead.

Hope you guys like her. I plan to list her on ebay
later on today. Starting at 99 cents. (sold, thanks!)

Also, I received more etsy love recently. Yay!

My witch painting was magically chosen for the"Blessed Be This Witchery" collection. Thanks again Myra!

And my angel painting was selected for this sweet "Harvest Chic"
collection. Thanks again FineAndFunkyJewelry!

Vanessa of A Fanciful Twist is hosting her annual
Halloween party again! I had such a spooktacular
time participating last year and will be joining in
the fun again. Come and sign up for the fun too!

Thanks so much for all the special comments from my
last post! I really appreciate your visits!

Lisa :)
