  14. I especially love these sisters. I've been anxiously awaiting their debut. I knew they would be magical, and you did not disappoint! They have such an eerie beauty, and I have to say they remind me of our cozy coven at the haunted house at Sleepy Hollow (minus one witch and a wizard).

  15. I love that this is dark, kind of gothic. You make towels into birds, great imagenation. I guess the word haunting comes to mind.
    Happy Fall, Mary

  22. This is a wonderful painting! I don't have your talent for painting people. I'm hoping to find some time soon to practice.

  28. Hi Sharon,
    I love your work, and this one is such a treat for the eyes, I have two sisters, so I resonate with your paintings...and this one is so sleek and ethereal. Thank you for sharing too about the towels...so interesting...you have one of the best blogs to visit, which I do regularly...xx

  30. Sharon, this is an amazing piece..what are the dimensions? I may have missed that if you posted about it. I love the beauty and lightness of their faces against the darkness of their cloaks. I super sized it to really look (as we always do :) ) and it's so dimensional and rich. I will e-mail you about this.
