Trick or Treat

"October Bounty" original watercolor on Arches paper 18"x24" Available for Purchase 50% off

It's October, I'm still in denial!  Where is the time going.  I have an extensive list of paintings I want to paint for competitions and I paint at a snail's pace.  It certainly is a balancing act trying to fit in all the kid stuff, family stuff and wife stuff on top of the artist stuff.  I'm sure you can all relate:)  So while I'm currently working on a commission I thought I would share an oldie but goodie, surely to have you salivating but hopefully not adding any inches to your waist.  I painted this 2 years ago.  It was fun to paint and I have it on an easel in my living room adding to the Halloween decor.  I'm offering it half price for a Halloween sale.
"Candy Apple Red" original watercolor on paper by Carrie Waller 6" x 6" Buy Now

Also for my Halloween Special I'm offering my painting "Candy Apple Red" at 50% off.  Regularly $195.00  on SALE for  $97.50.

I also thought I would share the marketing material for Randy Higbee's upcoming December 6x6 show.  I was thrilled to see he used my painting on the brochure.  Can you figure out which on is mine:))  Ha!

Also I've entered Daniel Smith's 11th annual customer art contest.  They have fabulous prizes but you the downside is you have to get votes.  So I would greatly appreciate it if you would vote for me.  Once you click on the link put Waller in the search box and my painting "Anitcipation" will come up.  Then just hit the vote button.  Thank you in advance :)



  1. Toutes mes félicitations pour cette publication sur la revue de décembre.
    Je suis heureuse de pourvoir "user" mon regard sur la première oeuvre que je ne connaissais pas. Quel merveilleux travail...
    Gros bisous

  2. I'd know that glassware anywhere...:) Congratulations on the show and lots of luck with sales. You are making me want a candy apple. :}

  3. There is no question which is yours! I'd recognize those teacups anywhere! And I LOVE your paintings. Those toffee apples are particularly gorgeous :0)
    The one above is incredible - and it make me go cross-eyed, lol!
    I agree - this year is hurtling by at an alarming rate!

  4. yours shines as always my friend. i'm sure you'll manage to get it all done beautifully. these are just stunning. hope all is well. best, suz

  5. Did you notice Sandra called them toffee apples

    ... that which you call a candy apple, by any other name would taste as mouth wateringly sweet! (move over Shakespeare)

    Hope they all sell!

  6. I'm on my way to vote for you Carrie. Your art always leaves me breathless!

  7. Carrie, I love October Bounty. It is perfect. Good luck on your competitions. I know what you mean about balancing the mom hat and trying to paint. As my kiddos get older, it seems like I have a lot more to manage and do as a mom vs. when they were younger. I take an open studio class weekly and know of a weekly painting group. If I go to those, then I get painting done. If I think I am going to paint at home, well... facebook, my blog, yada, yada, yada. I have also not encouraged commissions right now because I want to "free paint" for growth.

  8. A beautiful piece, Carrie...As always!!! and let me guess,hmmmm TEA CUPS!!!! I would know your work anywhere.

  9. I love these paintings so much Carrie. :))) I want you to do more Halloween ones, they are so much fun. I can't wait to see your commission piece too.

  10. The candy apple painting really caught my eyes. The colors are so vivid and it looks realistic. You are a really good painter.
