HDH089 - DALI DELUSIONS

This week at Haunted Design House the challenge is to let Dali inspire you, therefore Dali Delusions.  Well I decided to paint Dali's face with the old sticks holding his head up (how original of me to rip him off like that ha!)

Now my good friend Netty has told me a few times about Paint Party Friday and this week is The Party after the Storm so I am entering the painting in this too.  Talk about a talented bunch of painters,WOW.  I have been oogling their blogs for a couple of weeks now and they sure do know how to paint.

I never get a chance to paint as my kids are still young and as soon as I bring out my paints they descend upon me.  So when I was painting this the 2 year old was like hanging off of my arm trying to dip her hand in my paints, that is why the skulls on the bg were so imperfect and rushed as I just had to finish it.





All of the marks on the canvas board are where my little one put her grubby toast fingerprints hehe.


Anyway I hope you decide to play along with Macabre Monday this week as we would love to see what craziness you come up with.

Oh and I painted this with acrylics.
