My Art, Meet Rogene, oh and Happy Halloween!

Hello Friends!  Here's what I've been working on this week! 
A friend of mine asked if I would be willing to donate a painting for her daughters school auction to raise money for the french club.  I decided to do a french theme and since I love old fashioned ladies I did Marie Antoinette.  I drew her first, then cut her out and put her in wax.  This wax painting is addictive.


I needed a little break from wax over the weekend so I pulled out a canvas that already has some tidbits on it and started a portrait.  I never get tired of drawing faces, love it!

I also want to introduce you to Rogene Manas today.  
My friend Melinda took a class from her at Art n Soul and has nothing but wonderful things to say about it.
Rogene is offering a workshop in Eugene on November 12 that sounds fabulous! 
Visit her blog HERE.

  I feel like such a scrooge this year, we didn't even carve pumpkins.  Somethings always gotta give.
Wishing you all a safe and Happy Halloween!
