Since my last post I have completed two paintings.  One painting is for an event in September and I can't show you it yet and then there's this silly little piece I'm going to show you now.

                                    8" x 10" acrylic on canvas board

I'm thinking of taking this image and printing it out on card stock to send out at Halloween.
I actually have a haunted house that very much resembles this one.

Now you've seen my first painting that I've posted. Some day I'll do something serious but for now I'm just going to be silly. The other painting went rather well until I went shopping for a frame for it. It seems that although it's a standard size canvas Michael's only carries one frame of that size in the store. Does that make sense to anyone? If it's a standard size, which the sales woman assured me it was, why carry only one frame in that size? She suggested I try the frame shop in the mall. I h-a-t-e shopping at the mall.

Hope you weren't too disappointed in this post. I'll try to do better next time, I promise.

As always, thanks for stopping by.

I only like paintings when I can see stories in it.
I don't care if the painter is one of fame or not I just want to make stories with what I see.
And boy, with this painting I can see stories...many stories....

Hi Miss Maddyrose,

Wow, do they REALLY have haunted houses at the North Pole? That's YOUR house? WOW. Is it a rental property? Could M&D rent it for a week and take us on vacation? WOW, this is Great. It would be fun to stay there over Halloween. (o:

I showed the painting to LuLu & Flora and told them ghosts live there - they ran screaming upstairs and are hiding under the bed. They were running so fast they were tripping over each other. It was a very funny sight.

Oh, Mom wants to know what the fall rate would be for renting the Haunted House. (o:

I love this, too! It's a really cute/spooky house. I wouldn't mind staying there for a night, not on Halloween, though.

That house looks very spooky. I can imagine spider webs every where.
Wilbur even had the shakes when I showed him.

How could we ever be disappointed with this post??? I love this painting. It is fun, creative, a bit spooky and makes me so very happy. I think it would be a fabulous Halloween card. I can't wait to see your other painting! Have a lovely weekend, my sweet friend.
