Trumpkin is finished! Spooky, yes? I think I was 12 the last time I carved a pumpkin, and this is my first portrait pumpkin ever. Suffice to say, my carving skills need much improvement. Now, let's see how long it takes for this pumpkin to get smashed on our front porch. #trumpkin #trumpkin2016 #pumpkincarving #pumpkinportrait #jackolantern #halloween #halloween2016
With myself and my kid being sick so much lately–likely attributed to her new enrollment into preschool–I felt like a human for the first time in days today. Mentally, I have also been out of it, feeling anti-social and reclusive, not wanting to do anything but retreat to my painting. I felt more like myself today, though, and maybe that had something to do with the outfit I picked, made up of pieces I really enjoy: skirt by Emily and Fin, Voodoo Vixen top from Pinup Girl Clothing, and brooch found on Etsy. Here I am, posing in front of the painting I am currently working on. #ootd #pinupgirlclothing #emilyandfin #art #painting #painter #paintpalette
Kiddo has been sick all weekend, but oh how I love that little face.
