Illustration Friday: Stripes and Happy Halloween 2016!

I was walking through the woods behind the house and stumbled upon this little abode. I knew that 
these little houses existed because I have written about them several times here and here. To actually find one is quite thrilling and I picked it up and brought it home. I hope to find a tenant very soon.
My submission for Illustration Friday's "Stripes" is " Candy Corn Cabin"  but it is a cross between a teepee and a tent which is why it works so well in the woods.  

"Life in a Candy Corn House is Sweet!" 
Wishing you all a Happy Halloween and happy Trick or Treat!

Illustration Friday : Tattoo

Working on a painting but I couldn't resist this quickie on a scrap of rag paper 
for Illustration Friday's prompt. I love making a neighborhood "Tattoo" Parlour.                         
 Many cities have a lot of closed storefronts, Tattoo shops survive the times.

Josie's Garden for Illustration Friday "Childhood" theme





Paper Sculpture for Josephine's bedroom. I had to quickly take photos because it needed to 
be framed and delivered so I took a few with my phone and then with my digital camera. Different views and angles. I added the mushrooms after my first set of photos because I stumbled upon this little fragile world and had to incorporate it into the image. I feel pleased,
not with my photos, but with the original art. The finished painted paper sculpture is called
"Josie's Garden"...






It is the season now to go about the country high and low, among the lilacs hand in hand, and two by two in fairyland.
