Good Day to you my friends. I am writing to tell you about a new venture I will be working on with my Mother Ellen Gleason. As mother and daughter Artists we are now offering in home painting Parties. This should be a fun experience for all. Many of you that cannot take a trip to Sleepy Hollow can now host your own parties from home. GUESS WHAT!!?? ANY HOSTS or Hostesses Receive their ticket for free which means you get all your supplies for free and a Great Little Goodie bag at the end of the painting class for hosting an in home painting party. We will be offering all sorts of packages with different images to paint. I love the Gothic Halloween Look my mother likes folk art landscapes, light houses and such. Your party can paint one image or break the party(class) up in half. So if 1/2 of your guests want to paint a Haunted House painting and the other half wants to paint fruit and flowers the class can be split in two. 🙂  Packages start at $20.00 per person but do require a minimum for us to travel. No experience required but we do ask to ask friends that are interested in learning to create to participate. This will be a fun lhands on learning experience. Hostess this is like any party. You can treat it as such, provide your guests with Appetizers and drinks decorate if you like that is all up to you. I do promise a Great time and a final piece of art you will be proud to call your own. If you are interested in hosting a painting class in the Hudson Valley, and Beyond we will travel up to 100 miles depending on size of party. Please email for more detailed info. You can also check out prices in my store of some of the images that are available per ticket. again message me if you are interested in a in Home Painting Class by My Eclectic Mind ( have a Frightfully Great Day everyone. 🙂

Welcome 2015


Happy New Year to all you Spooky Fiends out there!! 2015 is here what a lovely odd rounded year it is. I am looking forward to some fun Happenings this year!!! I have a lot of things roaring in my head itching to get out. BUT unfortunately I am limited to only few. I will be starting some oil paintings this week i am excited to pick up the medium again. It has been a few months and well. Winter time is the best time to get these oily creatures out of my noggin. I plan on working on some unique designs for some clothing this spring. I have clothing on the mind that includes unique dresses with Fun Gothic prints. Unique patterns that will have a touch of gothic whimsy, Colors that will pop and enhance the female form no matter what shape or size. I will also be offering T-shirt designs. These fashions will be available early spring.

I will continue to do Autumn shows around NY. I will be looking into a few new shows this year i just have to do a little more homework before i go along with the application process.

The Sleepy Hollow Cemetery is always fun and I really can’t wait to return. I will be hosting another Art class this year. Still have to work out dates. I promise to have these set dates early 2015 so many of you can make your vacation time around visiting the cemetery. Classes are fairly small and are set behind the Cemetery gates in the Cemetery Chapel. The chapel is unique and only open to special events. I will be again setting up my tent weekend before Halloween right behind Washington Irving. My tent will be filled with Paintings, functional art pieces such as One of a kind jewelry boxes, Clocks, Candle holders, Prints, hand sculpted jewelry and more. So be sure and keep a small spot cleared in October for one of these fun dates. Come out and hang out with me in the Cemetery. I promise you WILL NOT REGRET IT!

OK done with Blogging for now. I will be back soon. I will be posting some photos of progress work of new oil paintings 🙂 HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!!!!!!
