Hey that's my painting!

My topsy/turvy painting is on the wall 
of this fab dining room in the October issue of 

Here's the link to the article:

"Sweet & Salty"

("salty" is on top)

I was told by the gallery years ago, 
that a super cute couple had bought this 
& another favorite painting of mine, 
but I never knew where this painting lived until now! 
I have to say that I am both thrilled 
& a bit jealous of it's fabulously chic surroundings.
Wow, what an absolutely perfect home!

Treats only please.

Happy Halloween from Melissa Belanger Art!!!
I'm giddy that my favorite holiday 
has finally arrived!
A huge thank you to all of my Halloween collectors 
& I just know that your homes
are looking Halloween-y Fab right now. 
Cheers to "achingly cute" costumes 
& tricks that turn into treats. 
Have a fabulous Halloween y'all!!!

I thought that I was done with Halloween for 2015,
but then this little 12" Halloween mascot happened.

Here's what she looked like earlier this week.
Fingers crossed that she will be included
in a magazine for Halloween 2016 :)

Why not combine the two holidays?!

Depending where you live, 
Oktoberfest is happening right now, 
somewhere around you.

This year's Ghoultide Gathering paintings 
combine the adult fun of Oktoberfest 
with the nostalgic charm of Halloween.

The best beers and Halloween decorations 
have traditionally been made in Germany; 
so, why not?!

Here are some photos of what happens artistically 
when holidays combine.
(AKA, candy & beer cheer/grown-up Halloween)
