New Paintings: "Vintage Toy Series"

I had a blast painting these images of vintage toys! They are oil on wood panels that are 8"x8"x2" (and I guess I wouldn't be a good art marketer if I didn't mention that they are for sale at the Arizona Art Alliance Gallery in Scottsdale, AZ.!)

Just wanted to show you how my daughter Hilari decorated her living room. Isn't it fabulous?! (I'm still working on mine, and I can't wait to unveil the decor soon! ((I'm way behind this year....))

My Paper Mache Pumpkin Head Project

 This summer, while I did some paper mache projects with the glamchildren, I started a pumpkin head mask for myself. I started by applying torn newspaper an old school flour, water and white glue mixture all over a plastic beach ball. ( I like adding liquid starch into the mixture when I can find it)
 Then I taped some cardboard onto the ball for a neck and taped crunched up newspaper all around the ball to form a pumpkin shape, then paper mached on top of that.
 I takes at least a day in between each layer of paper mache to harden and that's in our AZ heat! I then drew a face on the pumpkin head and taped cardboard to add the 3-D features.
 More layers of paper mache........
 and more layers of paper mache and adjustments to add form and scariness...
I'll add a final post as I start to paint this guy. FUN
