I am struggling creating a Day of the Dead item for Society of Eclectic Halloween Artist April Theme. But I wanted to stop in and wish you all and Happy Easter/Ostara Day!
I love the eggs, chicks and rabbits that have become symbols of Easter and how it makes children happy. I like the candy too! I silently smile as churches do Easter egg hunts, that these symbols are pagan symbols of rebirth and new life. The name Easter is derived from Oestar, a goddess of spring and renewal. The rabbit or hare was the symbol of new life, the date for Easter is determined by the moon. So, Easter Sunday, if you go to an Easter sunrise service, hunt for colored eggs or eat marshmallow bunnies, remember you are indulging in pagan rituals that celebrate fertility and the advent of springtime!
Welcome to Haunted Swamp
Some of the nicest people I've met have been from selling my Art,gourds and jewelry! All of my work is created in my home studio in N. E. Ohio. Most of my art is painted with acrylic and watercolor, sometimes a mix of both. Inspired from all things Magical, Spooky, Haunting and Whimsical! From Haunted Places, Gourds, Fat Bottom or Sassy Cats to Monochromatic landscapes you never know what I may paint or create next! Also search SEHA - Society of Eclectic Halloween Artists and HA31 - A Gathering of Halloween Artists ...these are both wonderful groups of talented artists! Search These groups on Ebay to see what they are up to!
