mercedes helnwein

Have I had these pieces in my drafts folder for ages just waiting for today? Yes, yes I have! This is the work of Austrian born, LA based artist Mercedes Helnwein  I’ve written about her before {back in 2014}, and obviously I fell in love all over again when I saw these nostalgia-filled images {oil pastel on paper}. Thank goodness Halloween is finally here … I couldn’t wait much longer. Happy Halloween!
