It's TAD and later PPF

Hi Everyone!
I am so excited about TAD with Rain  
Her theme this week is Supernatural. Ohhh right up my alley. Supernatural can go in so many directions. For me it is a world like non other. 
However, as explained on line
The supernatural encompasses all entities, places and events that would fall outside the scope of scientific understanding of the laws of nature. This includes categories of entities which transcend the observable Universe, such as immaterial beings like angels, gods, and spirits.
For my first piece I made a molded leather scull, I actually had this made waiting for something. 
The leather is deer hide painted. The eyes are all glass, some are digital cabs and some are fused glass. The baby skulls are plastic as is the rib bones that hold my beadwork. I had beaded this piece  a while back but my hands wouldn't allow me to finish it. 
So the pewter goddess bird with bat wings looks over this land.
The 3rd eye scull watches the spirit world
All other eyes are on you. (wicked witch laugh) 





The walk of doom, or an escape?

Dose anyone remember the Twilight Zone episode "To serve Man?" The gist of it is that human volunteers to go to  Kanamits' home planet. It is a political ploy to rid hunger and other things happening on planet earth. The end is when the star, Patty, runs up screaming,
 "Mr. Chambers, don't get on that ship! The rest of the book To Serve Man, it's... it's a cookbook!"
This is what came to my mind when I  was painting this. Here is the full episdoe
Around my house I found several more "Supernatural" art piece. 




This is another world that live up on my shelf.



This is a very large piece of molded leather skull with hands in a painted graveyard


I just had to show my white walker.

I hope this all fits the bill and you have enjoyed your time here.
I will be linking up with Paint Party Friday tomorrow.
Honor and integrity in art, in life.


  1. Oh Nicole, you have found some absolutely incredible beauties to share with us. I struggled with this one. I'm so delighted you shared these beauties. I loved the leather and the skulls that hold your incredible beadwork. I also LOVE the crows. I never thought of that, but I have about an hour, so I'm off to search to see if I can add something to my own pitiful entry tonight. THANKS for the inspiration and beauty of all these.

  2. Love the beaded piece in the first one. I remember it! So sad you couldn't finish it, but I think, it has found its place. I have some ravens included in my blog post, too. Yours are fantastic. Definitely need to draw more ravens. Love these clever birds. Have a great day, my friend!

  3. Lovely scary pieces. Have a wonderful day, stay safe, Valerie

  4. Tolle gruselige Zeichnungen und Basteleien sind das!!!Passt zum Thema von Rain!
    Lieben Gruss Elke

  5. Wow, you´re an amazing artist! They´re all great, but the last one... he really looks one in the eye! Goosebumps!

  6. Unbelievable seeing all of this incredible work in one place! My favorite is the white walker, so glad you included it!

  7. You excel in scary today
    Happy Thursday


  8. Very spooky scary pieces Nicole, well done!

  10. Nicole,

    You do creepy art beautifully! Your ravens look spooky and the white walker is scary. I can see how much you enjoy sketching these pieces. I remember The Twilight series but not the episode you mentioned. I'm looking forward to watching some fun creepy movies for Halloween. Thanks for sharing! Have a doodletastic day,my dear!!

  11. Bom dia. Parabéns pela excelente matéria.

  12. Awesome, artistic and scary ... supernatural for sure. Your crows bring to mind Edgar Allen Poe's "The Raven" another scary story. Great post, Nicole ...

    All so good, perfect for the theme.

    All the best Jan

  14. That leather skull has grabbed my attention.

  15. oh, wow, the first piece reminded me of old, forbidden to visit, grave sites.The remains of a people. From folklore and history.
    I like your Ravens and the worlds you created on your shelves and the white walker.
    I remember the name Twilight Zoone, so I will have to come back to see the episod.
    Take care.

  16. Nicole, I'm SO happy that you are so excited about the themes this month! If it were up to me, the whole year would be a creep fest lol...but lots of folks aren't into that all the time! So October is for US. :) I LOVE all of your pieces, but whoa, your White Walker...gave me chills and I LOVE IT. So well done! :))) Love it. Your molded leather skull is just amazing...what a brilliantly creepy yet spiritual display. I'm so impressed by this! Your beaded piece with your goddess bird/bat is amazing! So are your birds and your painting! I'd say an escape ;) Great post, thank you SO much for your enthusiasm!!! :) I'll be watching that Twilight Zone episode! I've seen a lot of them but don't remember that one. I know that The Simpsons did a take on that in one of their TreeHouse of Horrors though!

  17. Thanks Rain. The White Walker is a poster, I should have mentioned that and the Ravens are my mom's. She had quite a relationship with Raven.

  18. An amazing post!!!
