Peek at the underside of a candy bowl I'm working on. It's about half done. The detail painting has been challenging.ive needed to take many breaks to rest my fingers. But I'm determined to complete this along with a handful of other items for this coming Halloween season!

Six months in the sun and rain. There will be no deterioration of the quality of this stone. The headstone industry and outdoor sign industry, take note..

What a coincidence that these goodies arrived in my mailbox today, Friday the 13th! Most know that I’m very into genealogy, but only my close family knows that I’m a taphophile. (A tombstone tourist.) Whenever we go somewhere, I always have to visit the historical old churches in the area. I could spend hours walking around their old cemeteries, admiring the beautiful, old hand carved headstones. I love the symbology. The older the better. I imagine how hard life must have been back in the day, and remember that each headstone represents a life, and someone’s relative. My family tolerates my weird obsession by giving me a time limit 😂 When I found the ETSY seller @greysquirrelstudio my heart did a little dance. These gorgeous “plaques” are actually made from “rubbings” respectfully taken from actual headstones. A little creepy? Maybe. But I Love them 💀

Flashback to this killer whale I put on the back of a headstone in 2013.. this was one of the first very complex designs I ever painted and I really learned a lot in the process!
