The painter himself weaves deception with each stroke of the brush as he studies the subject.
On a canvas of lies, he paints a double life ... beneath the bold azure colors of the landscape lies the rotton fabric.
Take care, lest you become part of his masterpiece.

Our good friend Summer Swanson is hosting a fantastic giveaway on her Artfulife blog! A creative painter/all around artist whose work is filled with whimsy and color, Summer is offering the winner the opportunity to choose what subject they want painted (animal subject, that is).
Pick your pet kitty, your frisbee-fetching pooch, or maybe your favorite imaginary pet (let's say the giraffe you envision in your back yard). The finished piece will be similiar to what you see in this post, in the style of beautiful children's whimsy.
Definitely a giveaway worth giving a hoot about....or in some cases, maybe a mew or a woof... so click the magic curious kitten button below to visit Summer's Artfulife Giveaway. Artfulife has hosted a series of giveaways this summer, in addition to featuring Summer's beautiful artwork.

The grand opening of Summer's Artfulife Etsy shop will also be taking place shortly, as she joins the Etsy family of artists...we'll be adding a link to her shop on our links list or as a button.
P.S. -- 'Tis the season to change the featured item in our own little shop...you'll see the ever-popular mini muslin cuckoo-clock just waiting to perch on the edge of a shelf.

The knife is only "sewn" in Jack's side, since I didn't want to cut the fabric between folds. I think his expression is somewhere between horrified and indignant.
At least he doesn't have to worry about getting sliced up over a bowl of breakfast goodness ... his assailant likes it on the rind. Macabre, I know, but hey -- it's Halloween!
