Heather's Wonderful New Pieces
Heather has a couple of darling pieces up for auction this week - here is her every so hansom Jack...
Vintage looking Halloween party doll Jack is all geared up for Halloween in his little polka dotted clown suit. This costumed folk doll is not a toy. Jack was created using a wonderful pattern from Donna at Moonchild's Primitives. He has a party hat trimmed in vintage Halloween tinsel by Bethany Lowe. His body is made from coffee stained muslin, which was then painted, sanded, stained again and baked to prim perfection. Done in traditional vintage Halloween colors, he has a little collared ruffle around his neck that is also stained with my coffee and vanilla mixture and he smells yummy! Jack carries a little black cat treat bag, that is attached with rusty curled wire and a safety pin. His features and suit are entirely hand painted. He will be all the rage at this years All Hollow's Eve party in his dapper attire! There is a hanger on the back from which you can display him. He is 20" Tall.
Not intended for children, for display only.
And this lovely Spring piece - I do love Heather's paintings!!! Here is..
"Midsummer Eve". By: Folk Artist Heather Millott.
Size is 11 x 14
OOAK (one of a kind)
Pagan Celtic customs honor midsummer as a lesser fire festival. Shakespeare immortalized this lesser fire Sabbat in his play, A Midsummer Night’s Dream. Faeries are featured in this comedy. Litha (or midsummer) is also the time of another celebration, the Feast of the Faeries. At twilight, the portals between the worlds open and faeries may enter our world. Mortals who welcome them are blessed with joy and wisdom.
This painting was created with professional acrylics hand painted on 11 x 14 Quality canvas panel. In a vintage style silhouette. Sealed with a protective finish. Signed by the artist and dated on the back.
