So much to do, so little time! At least that is how I always feel when the weekend is here. Here is the next painting from "The Curiously Creeping Coast". I'm pondering a few new ideas, and planning a trip to obtain the crafting goods (I hope, I hope!). Happy Weekend folks!

Siren, 11"x14" acrylic on masonite

She told them of a place
where the ships washed ashore,
Everyday like clockwork -
precisely after four.
From behind the rocks she wailed,
the ships on their journeys,
they sailed -
Until they heard that familiar sound,
that lured them in and
spun them 'round.

Good Evening!
...and hello! My next painting from "The Curiously Creeping Coast" is now complete =)I've got three more I'm working on, as well as some other goodies coming soon.

Phineas, 9"x12" acrylic on masonite

He used to gather sand stars,
until that fateful day -
When walking by the seashore,
his love was swept away.
Looking to the midnight sky,
the stars they shine above -
A pocket full of wishes,
that the sea returns his love.

Hello, Hello!

A while it has been! Here is the first painting from "The Curiously Creeping Coast". I've got two more completed, just waiting to be scanned & photographed; they will be up soon =)

Octavia, 9"x12" acrylic on wood panel

She gathered seaweed in the early morning sun,
Heading back home, her work was done;
As she turned away,
She heard a curious voice say,
"Well hello little girl, would you like to play?"
Tapping her shoulder (and sure life was now over!)
What an ominous, but gentle old fella'
Creeping in, he gave her an umbrella;
"Why thank you!" she said, as he nodded his head
No longer overwhelmed with a feeling of dread;
Splashing around at the edge of the tide,
"Hop on" he said, I'll give you a ride;
A dreamer of dreams, but are they as fun?
They travelled the waves 'til the setting sun.
