Happy Halloween and Happy Mail

Hi everybody!

Happy Halloween to all who celebrate it, 
and Happy Friday to everybody!
And Happy Birthday to Annette, she was lucky enough to be born
on Halloween! Have a great day!

Today I am showing 2 Halloween pieces made in the past, but which I like very much. The canvases are both 8x8", and the images used are from Gecko Galz, 'Little witches' and 'Owling for you'. They have been printed onto canvas, and fixed to the painted and textured canvases before being embellished.
I am linking to Paint Party Friday.







This beautiful Halloween card arrived today from Diane - thanks a lot Sweetie, I LOVE it! It must have taken ages to fit all those little parts together, wow! What a fantastic project! Thanks again!





Today was milder than yesterday, which made walking more enjoyable, and I went for one longish walk and 2 shorter ones, which made 17000 steps altogether, so that was good. I thought the sheep were looking very snooty today:






This is the path which leads past the castle ruins:


As I came back from my evening walk, the sun was setting over the Rhine:






And the wild geese were also hurrying home


Have a great weekend you all, take care,
and thanks a lot for coming by!

  11. Happy Halloween. I love both of your Halloween pieces. I just wanted to reach out and touch the first one. The textures looked amazing. The card you received was awesome. All of those pieces - amazing. Thank you so much for sharing your walk with us. I have been trying and trying to get myself to begin walking again. After seeing your pictures I think I have to find a new and interesting place to walk. That may make the difference.

  15. What a wonderfully atmospheric autumnal pay. Great Halloween pieces and your friends card is amazing! I love those sheep-they look very different from the ones up here in Scotland! Beautiful photos and good in you walking 17000 steps. I use a pedometer app on my phone and it's harder than you'd think to even do the recommended 10000 steps a day!

  16. I love the owls in your second painting and the sheep! :-) Would you allow me to use the sheep-photo as a reference for a drawing?
    Have a beautiful day and a great weekend!

  25. Happy Halloween Valerie!!!! Love your art and that card you received is so cool!!! So much detail ♥ Yes the sheep are a little snooty looking but warm. Love the picture --looking through the weeds over the river with the boat in the distant background ♥ Tonight we get our first freeze of the season and we have finally turned on the heat in our house. Winter is at our door :(

  30. Valerie, my list of favorites is growing adding the two projects you shared today. I love how you create great amounts of texture to your backgrounds. And, as a person who so willing shares her photos, you are becoming very popular as friends want to use them in their art. I love your walks so much. HAPPY HALLOWEEN. I need to go wish Annette a Happy Birthday too.

    Hugs,
    C
