Feels like winter...

(the painting above is not on my web site but it will be one of the pieces I'll have available as a print within a week, if all goes as planned).

The leaves are still mostly green but we're on day five of grey winter coldness, around here. Normally I'd be out enjoying the leaves, but the cold snap has me staying in and thinking about the months ahead.

I just placed an order for a handful of matte 5 x 7 prints of some of my older paintings as well as a few new ones. These will have a 1/4 inch border around the edge. I should have them by the end of the week and if I'm happy with them I'll order up some more and make them a regular offering in my Etsy shop.

Meanwhile I am going back through some of my older pieces of which I only have small images saved. When I did them, in the early 2000s, I was using a scanner with a lower resolution and I didn't have a lot of disk space to be saving giant files all the time, so I don't have a way to reproduce those old paintings now since they have long since sold. So, my plan is to re-paint some of my favorites, and have them on hand as permanent originals from which new prints and other items can be made.

If anyone would like to visit my art gallery at and suggest any paintings from any of the categories, to offer as prints, please let me know! I will be starting by doing some winter witch art, for the upcoming months, and a few other favorites of mine. I am particularly fond of some of the patchwork witches on the Halloween page, and some of the pieces on the first Gothic page so I will be doing those along with the winter witches to start. I'll be offering 5 x 7 matte prints at first but I will also offer some 8 x 10s if it seems like something people want. I'm open to suggestions! I prefer matte but if glossy is something people want I'd do that as well.


  1. Ya, having to redo originals is not a fun thing for me! That's why i'm so afraid to sell any originals! I'd get prints of them done, but what if I ran out? lol.

    I absolutely love your paintings! I checked out your art gallery - love them all! But my faves would have to be - Absinthe Demon, The Wood of Loneliness, Corncob Broom, Cauldron Bubbles, Alice in the Dark Woods, On the Green Moon.. I could keep going but then i'd be naming them all.

  2. Thank you Kathryn! And thank you for the suggestions! I think I'll enjoy repainting these, as it's been a long time since I first did them...maybe I can improve on them and add more details!

  3. I know I'd love to order a print of Ghost Bottles! The Wood of Loneliness also looks like it'd be great for that.

  4. Thanks Geoff! I think I have a high res scan of my Ghost Bottles so I should be able to do that one! And my loneliness painting seems to be a fave for many, including me, so I definitely want to re-do that one. :)
