With out further ado, I give you "He's So Dreamy".
Above you see a series of in progress photos. I tried to document this painting more than I had others simply because of it's size. To date this is my largest gouache painting at just a little over 17 inches tall and 7 inches wide. It was a beast, and as you can see in many of the in progress photos, I got a little "lost in the pretty". She was a ton of fun to work on and, as usual, I learned a lot seeing it thru to completion.

As I was checking out with my haul of toys and clothes, I noticed a Mother and her 8 year old daughter standing next to me. The mother was holding my Truly Outrageous print, which made me smile. I pointed out that it was a cute pic and she told me her daughter had picked it out for her bedroom. The idea that a little girl was going to have two monster girls playing with their dolls watching over her while she played with HER dolls filled me with so much joy. I did wind up telling her that I did the piece, thanked her for purchasing it and told her daughter she had excellent taste. ;)
Speaking of prints. . . until January you can only get prints of "He's So Dreamy" exclusively at Halloween Town in Burbank, CA. After January 1st they will be available in the Crypt of DOOM, along with the rest of my monster prints. You can see the original on display at Halloween Town until the end of the month (December).
