Work in progress Wendesday

work in progress original watercolor on paper by Carrie Waller
Hi Everyone,

Happy Halloween!!!  It's an exciting day in the Waller house.  After more than a week being sick with strep throat I do believe that I have a couple happy little boys that have been cleared to go trick or treating.  This year we have a skeleton/ghost and a knight.  Pictures to follow on Monday.

Thought I would share my work in progress.  I'm pretty excited about this little 6x6.  I had such a great photo shoot with these objects and I think I will probably paint  a few versions and sizes of this composition.

My thoughts and prayers are with everyone on the East Coast, especially all my artist buddies and military friends.  Having lived in Hurricane/tornado alley for a the last 7 years I can greatly sympathize.

Update::  Here are some Halloween trick or treaters:)

  4. All the trick 'n treaters got soaked tonight in a downpour.

    Looks like another Carrie masterpiece is under way. I hadn't realised how much drawing was involved... interesting.

    Looking forward to seeing it completed.

  8. Love, love, love the intricate patterns of the cut-crystal glass! I am always amazed by you patience when it comes to the patterns on glass... I doubt I could ever do it...

  9. We missed Halloween when we were away - but luckily, my Mum saved all of the leftover sweets for Charlie which he was thrilled about! :0)
