31 NIGHTS OF HALLOWEEN
SPECIAL EDITION ART OF THE DAY

It's time for another Art of the Day but this time with a twist! Announcing the 31 Nights of Halloween Special Edition Art of the Day!

For the next 31 days, or nights rather, I'll be posting a new study in oil paint! Each painting will be around 2 or 3 inches by 3 or 4 inches and adorned in a richly ornate (or as ornate as possible) frame, made either to sit upon your table or hang on your wall. As usual, the prices will reflect my desire for everyone who wants one, to be able to afford an original Nicholas Harper painting. Bear in mind, these paintings may be a bit darker in tone and subject than a lot of my work, as it is after all, a month long celebration of Halloween.

So keep an eye out in the evening and sometimes early morning as the case may be, for a new update featuring that days study in oil! I'll post them here, where there will be a "Purchase Now Button" (first come, first serve), on Facebook and on my Instagram, linked here: @nicholasharperfineart

Cheers and happy 31 Nights of Halloween!

To get this party started and to get my minature art skills warmed up, I started with a small rendition of a charcoal study I made a few years back. This study represents the smallest oil painting I have ever done and the first of 31 total to be completed on Halloween evening! To puchase, click the Buy Now Button below. First come, first serve. And thank you for checking out this page and project!

2nd Night of Halloween

Wednesday, October 2nd, 2019

Again, starting these tiny arts off with a familiar subject and something similar to something I've done before on a larger scale, perhaps just a bit darker. Starting tomorrow I'm hoping to start playing with some different subject matter with a nice nod to Hallowwen spookiness.

3rd Night of Halloween

Thursday, October 3rd, 2019

Today I thought I would venture a bit out of my wheelhouse and do a cat, but not the typical black cat for Halloween. Oh no. I just had to be different and do a white cat, but a moody cat if I do say so myself.

Tonight is all about letting my conspiritorial flag fly... Have I told you lately about the Cyclops Alien Greys from Pluto? Tomorrow night I'm teaming up with my friend Phaedra, who is also making an art once a day for October. We decided to challenge each other and each do something bat themed. So, keep an eye out for something bat country from both myself right here, and from Phaedra on her IG at (click for link)

30th and 31st Nights of Halloween

Wednesday, October 30th and Thursday, October 31st, 2019

The 30th and 31st Nights of Halloween! It looks like we made it! I can't begin to thank all of you who liked, shared, commented, supported in ethereal and non tangible ways and even went so far as to purchase the work!!! Your enthusiasm throughout the past 31 Nights is what made this project so fulfilling on my end. I really hope you feel the same!

So tonight marks the last miniature painting that is for purchase… it is, what else, a spooky face. The 31st piece, also pictured here (a nice hairless sphynx kitty) will be given away tomorrow night as a door prize at the Halloween Ball above the gallery in the PNA Hall (links to that event are in the comments). Everyone who bought a ticket will get a piece of paper with a number at the door and one lucky person (hopefully they like black hairless sphinx cats) will win this lil critter!

This lil 31 Nights wasn't without some glitches. As it turns out, the web host of my gallery website kinda sucks and lots of people, myself included, came across issues with loading the page each night. For that I am truly sorry. As a result I know some who had waited diligently and tried to get a piece possibly didn't get one due to the gaps and delays in the page loading. As a remedy I would like to extend an offer to do a commission for those who would like one, same bat size, same bat price! Please shoot me a private message if this is something you would like to take advantage of.

Well, I guess this is the end of the road for the 31 Nights… Again, I thank you all and can't wait til the next Art of the Day project! And!!! Be sure to come by the gallery Friday night for the opening of Mourning Glory and then be sure to head upstairs to the PNA Hall for an amazing dance party and costume contest! Tics are only $10 and you could find yourself taking home a hairless kitty painting! Cheers!
