Happy Dancing with a Little Gothic Girl and her Dolly!
I always thoroughly enjoy the Vampire's Day Soiree, hosted by Holly's Horrorland, but this year I was also lucky enough to win an absolutely vamptastic giveaway over on the Sunshineshelle blog. Spooktacularly talented artist, Shelle, was generous enough to let me choose a painting from amongst her 29 Faces Challenge works.
Initially, I made a beeline for one of the vampire paintings Shelle did for the Soiree called, My mother made me a ... doll., which is pictured left, BUT, as I was scrolling through the other 28 Faces, my eyes fell upon Gothic Girl and her Dolly (above) and suddenly things got a whole lot more difficult. I sat the two paintings next to each other on my computer screen... then agonized!
Eventually, I settled upon Gothic Girl and her Dolly! Not only is Gothic Girl just my cup of (charmingly macabre) tea, but she also looks like she could be an extended member of the Addams clan. I was so excited when the postman delivered her to my door and she is currently sitting on my work table, awaiting the acquisition of just the perfect frame.
Thank you so much for my lovely painting, Shelle! I am completely besotted with Gothic Girl and her Dolly!
