(just a peek!)My twin and I(being twins) were born a month and a bit early. We ended up being born in October and it is our favourite month. We love the weather, how it cools again, and the "Spooky Factor". Not all the gorey stuff(however, we do love Edward Gorery!), but we love old Ghost Stories and have always made our own costumes(thanks to our mom always making ours from the start). We would start thinking about what we wanted to be for Halloween months ahead of time and be so excited for our birthday party which would be held in our family's barn with all our friends. Lots of bobbing for apples, mummy toilet paper wrap rolls, s'mores around the fire and hayrides on the old tractor and wagon-fun!
(I do a lot of Halloween Art too! The Invitation and Gift of a mixed media painting for my twin and her husband for their Halloween Wedding)
Now we come to the really fabulous part! When I came across the art Cat Mallard of Darkling Woods and LOVED IT ALL-especially her Fairy Tale and spooky Halloween pieces. I contacted her(she really couldn't be any sweeter or more humble about her amazing talent and work)to commission her to do a painting of twin Brides of Frankenstein for my twin Jer as a gift.
Now, the big reveal! I wish I could have taken a better photo because it is a thousand times more gorgeous than this.
Thank you dear Cat! You have made us slightly freaky twins who mumble in our own language still and can scare folks off with our "twin stare" feel very cool. We shall walk around like these gorgeous Brides now and remember our Spooky Beauty!
