Wednesday Orb Update

I had a great painting day yesterday and was able to get two more of the figures painted onto the Halloween and Vine orb. Below is a bat-winged skelly figure emerging from behind the tombstone, and.....

the second figure is the lumina pumpkin-vine figure carrying his "comfort" pumpkin (kind of like us with a teddy bear) and his cat bucket. I also added more stars and swirls to the spiderweb sky.

One more major figure goes on the orb today and then the background filling begins. If all goes well I will have another peek available for you tomorrow or Friday.

Fingers and toes crossed hoping for another great day of painting!!! (Toes are hard to cross!!)

Have a great day!

Thank you Sheila, I'm really glad you like the orbs.

Hi Darla!! Glad you like my little fantasy world.

Johanna you hit it on the head. I started with eggs and it has evolved into painted spheres...well, this being the first painted sphere other than an ornament. This one has a 6+ inch diameter.

Oh thank you David...I think I just blushed!!

Thank you Marie...having fun with these spheres!!

Thanks for the compliment Jeannine! They have been time consuming, but very enjoyable to paint or draw.
