Samhain

Samhain Tidings and Videos and things!

I managed to squeeze a thing out of my consciousness in time for Samhain.  Just a little tiny thing.  So smol. But it’s a drawing and I like it and I managed to record myself making it. Without further ado:

 

 

Here is a close-up of the thing:

Would you like to own the original drawing?  Click here, it can be yours. 🙂 

Prefer a print? We can arrange that as well.

I kept recording and ditching narrative for the video.  And then I tried explaining the narrative in the description box thing on youtube but it kept saying I was adding brackets and any number of things and wouldn’t let me add my commentary, which was pretty simple but now I’m spiteful about it.  Go and look up “The Green Ribbon” if you’re interested.  It’s one of my favorite little scary tales bc I feel like it’s a story that’s more complicated than it seems.  AND heads rolling around. BC Halloween.

 

And with that, I’m done working for the evening! Hail the dark Goddess, say hello to the shadows, jump into a pile of leaves, and blessed be. ❤ ❤

Friday, October 18th: Haunted Moon (my first solo show!!!)

Hey there everyone from the spottiest artist blogger on the planet!!!

So why all the exclamation points? Well…. In about 4 days, I have my first solo art show. That’s why. Squeeeek!!!

The show’s called “Haunted Moon” (because it happens to fall on October’s full moon.) It’s happening at the Scrap Exchange‘s Green Gallery in Durham, NC. Here’s a link to the writeup about the show on the gallery’s site.

Here’s a sneak preview of one of the pieces in the show:

ghostThe theme is a bit of a Haunted Appalachia thing from the pov of a suburban Appalachianite. This is only a tidbit tho… I’ve done some whole new stuff for this show, am throwing in a teensy bit of the old… it’s gonna be awesome! I just finished a tarot-themed piece tonight, the last one of 7 for this show.  It’s the tarot card I want a tattoo of (hint, hint…)

Doing the art for this show has helped me be able to find my real place as a witch and maintain an atheism that I’m agreeable to.  It’s been cathartic.  It does tell a bit of a story but it’s one I’d never tell out loud to strangers and I prefer the viewer come away with their own sort of translation of it anyways. 🙂 I plan to post pics of the opening provided I can get hold of a decent camera for the night.  I’m so excited!

My hope is to be more public in general after this shindig.  We’ll see.  Hopefully I’ll be seeing more of y’all in the months to come than I have been.

❤ Can’t wait to see y’all at the show!
