Hi, My name is Helen Grossman. I like to paint, read books, and learning a new forms of art and techniques. I love to learn and experiment with different medias and surfaces, like clay, paper, beads, gourds,it is always something new here to learn and grow. When I am feeling burn out I am reading books or taking my brushes and paint. Back in Ukraine I learned a decorative folk art style of painting called Petrikivka named after village it was born. You also could see some of my work on Instagram, @helldg123. Thank you for stopping by and if you have a moment, I would love to hear your feedback. Helen

Pumpkins and spiders and fun

We (my kids and I ) did this fun project today, this one besides building the catapult for school project.
We bought some artificial pumpkins, we wait and wait when they will go on sale and finally we've got 70% off and here we come :)
Sorry, getting sidetracked. I painted on this pumpkin and cover it with sealer that we can display it outside.
Then kids built some spiders out of styrofoam balls and chenille steams ( BHG idea)and with addition of cheese cloth we have a pumpkin princess.

Have a great day!
