When high school football commences and my tree leaves begin to change colors from dead to “really, we leaves are freckin’ dead because Carrie doesn’t water” in Oklahoma, that’s when I start preparing for the holidays and gift
giving making. I purchased these stemless wine glasses at TJMAXX on clearance for $5 for a set of four. I had the acrylic paint and brushes and misc supplies from an art class I took last year, so really, they are getting a second chance at life. On Sunday, I started painting a Halloween bat, which if you ask me, it looks more like a depressed spider. One of my neighbors is super erratically charged about Halloween. She is high on horror movies and I adore her. I decided to surprise the Chicago native with a set of various hand-painted wine glasses in various sizes for–red wine, white wine, and vodka. Oh, and she’s getting a bandaged-wrapped mason jar with goofy eyes filled with candy corns. She loves anything flipping scary. So, with that said, I’ve decided to paint some of her favorite Halloween book covers to movie posters on wine glasses… Pet Semetary, Frankenstein and something, something Dracula. The following photos of my work are not the ones I’m gifting to her because I haven’t started those. But, when I finish, I will post, unless they turn out crappy. Tomorrow, I’m hoping to blog about my crazy obsession on finding a vintage farmhouse screen door for my kitchen food closet.
