Tis the Season for Halloween Paintings

Last night there was a chill in the air. So today I dragged my easel outside and sketched one of my pet chickens wearing a witch hat. This is Clucky. Clucky stars is plenty of my other pet portraits.

Whimsical Animal Art

Here’s the finished Halloween painting. I added a ghost peaking out of the barn, a black cat. And Clucky is sitting on a pumpkin.

In Other Halloween News

Last month I published a book of scary stories. I’m still writing the book that goes with the oracle deck I created.

I felt like I didn’t really create much during quarantine, but looking back…I painted over 50 original paintings (44 of them are for my oracle deck), wrote and released a music album on sound cloud, wrote a handful of original ukulele songs, created a few music videos and learned a bunch of songs with Chad for our band The Loverfaces, and I published a new book.

How to Stick to Creative Goals

I’d admit that during quarantine I truly wanted to live like a sloth on the couch. But the artist in me knows that if I don’t create, I will die. That’s how it feels anyway.

I stayed productive creatively by quitting social media for a few months…now I only check in once a month or so. I didn’t miss out on anything. Plus I wasn’t pet sitting or face painting or writing for clients due to the pandemic. So my schedule was pretty open. I only allow myself to watch TV at night. And I do not watch the news EVER.

Last weekend I pet sit for the first time in 6 months! My pal Tillie (chihuahua) stayed for 5 nights. Chad and I are ready to get our own dog soon.
