October Beckoning, 6x6 Inch Original Oil Painting by Kelley MacDonald


I love the stem of this  - well, it's actually a gourd  - it seems to say "Come... enjoy this month!"  
Today I searched through half of Providence, RI to find some scrumptious cupcake to whip at fellow Daily Painters Originals artist Susan Roden.  No luck.  That's OK, my spirits were high because it was the kind of day I love - dramatic clouds, chilly enough for a fleece, but not uncomfortable, with blustery winds that take your hair and whip it all around.  Paco and I scoured the East Side of Providence, following leads we (ok, I) found on the internet for cupcakes - they were boring!  So we stopped at a deli in Barrington for a sandwich and saw that the local magazine that has the Discover Warren Map inside was available cool!  Until... I saw they'd forgotten to include me and my studio on the map or in the description.  I was a bit bummed (just a bit, OK?...) since I've been so excited about this for 2 months, and signed on within 3 days of it being announced.  
Trying to be balanced about it - not much I can do now, except hope that people stumble upon me that day!   Tomorrow.... a different twist on an everyday cupcake!

    You just get out one of those jelly banners and you'll have to beat 'em off with a broom ;)

  7. this is an incredible gourd!!! there's so much richness, such depth! beautifully done kelley. i'm so sorry they left you off the map!!! they should make it up to you with signs and arrows pointing you out! not cool. not cool at all. that said, i admire your handling of the situation. good luck!

  8. So, tomorrow you are flinging out a cupcake, eh Contessa? Well I am prepared for the battle. (you are such a worthy adversary)
