New Moon Spread

Can you read the small print?

As I was creating this piece and dialoguing with it…one sentiment kept popping up:

sic gorgiamus allos subjectatos nunc…

which we all know is not properly spoken Latin…

so, yes, I seriously spent time online seeking out a good, solid translation of this family credo…

eis libenter epulamur qui nos domare velint…

I wish I had bookmarked the site so I could give proper credit–but I was seriously online, working from link to link to link, trying to get to the truth of things…and after over an hour of looking that last time, because I would look as long as I could stand it, walk away, ponder using the incorrect phrase anyway, and once settled more, go right back to it…but, alas, I kept no track of anything…and yes, I clear my internet history constantly.

What are the other words?

I did keep on quote from the movie (Addams Family, in case you are wondering)…

Not just pretty words.

Tuesday Is For Art?

I know–yesterday was Lammas and I did not post anything about it…

I know–today is the New Moon and I have nothing to post about it.

What I have…are works in progress:

This is another WIP…it began life…as a smushy yellow oxide…and then evolved into this…the original intent was to put on a spooky flower, like this one by Painting With Jane (whom I love SO much…)…and then I started thinking about Morticia Addams and her flowers, her roses…and maybe I am going to paint a vase full of her specially clipped roses…I’m not sure yet.

I did finish one piece, that I cannot show at the moment.  I am calling it my Halloween prompt icon…

This year during the month of October, not only will Evangeline and I be showing up yet again for the annual Sisters In The Shadows Halloween tour de force…I am hosting a daily prompt party here on this blog.  Nothing special…I will post a prompt every day throughout the month of October.  We started posting prompts last year on our facebook page–which no longer exists–and since I cannot guarantee I will still be on facebook by October of this year, I figured we should move everything here and just keep it here.  We are hoping to make this an annual event.

You can find the prompts from last year here, if you are interested in them. Just scroll down.

We will have a theme reveal for this year in September.

Now, off I go–until next time…
