HAPPY HALLOWEEN!!!


Well hi again, I've been absent a few days, but I got a few paintings done, did some cleaning up in the garden, prettying up the place in the hopes that we start seeing tourists soon. Also got all my snail mail done and my scrapbook up to date, and evicted the moths from the sweater bin. And MY WEBSITE IS FINALLY UP AND RUNNING!!! I named it the Death Star cause it was always "almost functional". But now it's ready, with Paypal and everything. WOW! It's lolasartgallery.com, or http://lolasartgallery.com/Lolas_Art_/The_Gallery/The_Gallery.html
Heeheehee I larned that from Doc Barn!

This one is a 9 X 12 and is the first in a series of six which will be given away at the opening reception of the show - if the name of the painting can be guessed. There will be one clue given. And I have finalized the date of the show, it will run for the entire month of April 2009.

Got this one done tonight, it's called IN THE JUNGLE II and is 15 X 30. The other two are closeups. Well, it's three days after the anniversary of Iris (8/10/01) and so far we have escaped visits and near misses of God's Terrorists. Hope it stays this way till the season ends.
