Drippings: Stronger Than The Storm

0

Now that the recipient has received it, here’s a little painting I did as a gift to someone I know who is facing some major storms right now.

I was trying to think of something to send them as a gift to brighten their spirits and then I saw this little 4″ x 6″ blank canvas stashed in my art room and inspiration struck. So glad that it did because they really like it and it made the gift more personable.

Enjoy this little painting? Then be sure to visit my portfolio website and check out the Drippings page as well as the Remains page to see other things I have painted over the years.

Dead Girl Decay: Custom Jack Skellington Barrette

2

What’s this? It’s a Jack themed Dead Girl Decay Barrette that I was commissioned to make for a return client in the UK! For the last 5 years he has commissioned me to make a new themed hair piece for his wife and its the first thing she opens on Christmas morning. This year he chose Jack Skellington. A character I have held dear to my heart since I was a kid.

Due to me always wanting to make my creations unique and there being so many Nightmare Before Christmas things out there, I decided to hand sculpt and paint the center piece for this one instead of resurrecting something store bought. This included Jack’s face, his bat bow tie and some whimsical Tim Burtonesque swirls for each side. I had never used this specific medium for sculpting so I challenged myself to try something new and am so glad that I did. Here is how it came out.

Living Dead Girl Nicole's Handmade Jack Skellington Custom Barrette

Since the barrette was going to be just black and white I added a touch of iridescent glitter here and there as a sparkly representation of when Jack first discovers snow. I found the perfect feather fringe from Moonlight Feather Inc. I loved how thin and wispy it looked and the alternating black and white gave it a striped look that gave me total Jack suit vibes.

When I sent photos to the client weeks ago he loved it and could not wait to gift it to her. Today I received these photos and a message from him on Etsy telling me how much his wife loves it too. She even made it a point to pose with a little Jack figurine! How great are these?….

It means so much to me to know that my creations continue to make someone else’s holidays brighter and I truly look forward to the “Ok I got this year’s theme picked out” message I get a few months prior to the holidays. I have always loved doing custom orders because I feel like they are a creative challenge and they really get my creative blood flowing. This one in particular also allowed me to discover a new medium that I am already using in my other creations. A win win all around.

Drippings: Edward’s Wings

1

I am excited to finally share this custom piece I have been working on for a return customer. She provided the 20″ long wooden wings and told me she wanted Edward’s Scissorhands painted on them. I chose colors, snow accents and a pearlescent paint additive to give it the feel from the movie. I am happy to say the customer loved the vision I came up.

Freaky Fanatics Show Off Their Paintings!

0

As you know, I did a lot of painting for clients recently and I was so happy when I received some photos from both clients showing off how they displayed the paintings in their homes.

The massive 3 piece set I called Equinox now fills what was a very large empty wall space in my Uncle’s home. Instead of separating the pieces they decided they liked the image so much (as a whole) they hung it like it was one very large painting. The great thing about this set is if they ever get bored of that look they can change it. It was made so they can hang it with as much space in between the paintings that it will still make one large image. They can even hang them on separate walls in one room and have 3 separate paintings that match. The possibilities are endless….

I also received this spooktacular photo of Play Dead on display in my other client’s home. I am honored to have my work among so many other amazing Tim Burton inspired pieces. It’s like Gabby has a little piece of Beetle House right in her living room!
