Newest Painting and Art Print

I just finished an original I have been working on, "Rosalinda", which translates in spanish "Pretty Rose". The actual original measures 11 inches x14 inches. And I was inspired by roses I recieved as a gift for Valentine's Day. The roses were the prettiest shades of pinks and reds. I wanted to capture it in a painting and incorporate a spanish/latin feel, and a larger than life rose in this painting.
8 x 11.5 art prints are available in the shop. Click here to purchase. But they will also be available as greeting cards. Email me, info@peachycheek.com if you are interested in blank greeting cards.
The next painting I am working on is a large one (above) 24 inches by 16 inches. Recently I was asked what am I going to do with my girls, am I going to incorporate something else in the line of peachy cheek girls and the answer to that is "yes!" I have been wanting to work on a line of paintings that incorporate children. And the newest painting I am working on (and I have alot more work to do on) captures this theme. This little girl will probably be portrayed as a young little Bolivian girl working in a house or a kitchen...stay tuned to see how she comes out in the next few days...

Friday the 13th Special at Peachy Cheek

There are many theories on why Friday the 13th is considered an unlucky day.

One theory, by author Charles Panati, one of the leading authorities on the subject of "Origins" maintains that the superstition can be traced back to ancient myth: The actual origin of the superstition, is a tale in Norse mythology.

Friday is named for Frigga, the free-spirited goddess of love and fertility.

When Norse and Germanic tribes converted to Christianity, Frigga was banished in shame to a mountaintop and labeled a witch.

It was believed that every Friday, the spiteful goddess convened a meeting with eleven other witches, plus the devil - a gathering of thirteen - and plotted ill turns of fate for the coming week. For many centuries in Scandinavia, Friday was known as "Witches' Sabbath."

To celebrate Friday the 13th I am having a special in my shop. Free shipping on everything and buy 1 Print get 1 free.

This day might not be so unlucky for you. Consider youself a little lucky today. I am giving away a "Flaming Heart" pinback button.

Do you always "knock on wood" after saying something you dont want to happen. Do you avoid walking past black cats?

Leave a comment and share your superstition (if you have one) and I will draw our your name on February 20th.
