Up, up and away

I made this fun little hot air balloon with an adventurous black cat awhile ago.  Doesn't he just look like he is having fun! He is sold but he fired my imagination so much that I have plans for different ones.  Love the idea of a moon balloon and maybe a pumpkin one.

STJ update witch and frog

It's that time again and I am especially proud to introduce my newest sculpture.  This was a very intricate and time consuming sculpt for me. Doing and open mouth face is always hard but then I added hands and a  charming little frog!  Just loved her expression as well. She will be available on the Spooky time Jingles market website on the 13th of April.  Please check out all the wonderful art by my fellow artists.

Help for a friend

Sarah Sullivan is a very sweet lady and a wonderful artist.  She has been undergoing treatment for cancer and is finishing the last of her chemo.  She is having a rough time not being able to work and kids to support. She is asking for help in the form of a raffle.  For at least a $5.00 donation you get a chance to win a great piece of art (Below).  I know there were times in my life when people stepped forward to help my family and I and it meant the world to us.  If you can help, got to Sarah's website and use the donation button to make a contribution.  Thank you.

Shake, Rattle, and Roll! Pfatt update

I'm excited about the PFATT marketplace update this month.  If you haven't checked out PFATT yet it is a wonderful collection of artists with some of the most unique art pieces that can be found anywhere. You can visit at: Pfatt marketplace I know you will enjoy it.  My new pieces this month are Halloween shakers.  I love shakers and these

have a lovely sound. They are made using paper clay so they are very sturdy.  Each side of the shaker is a hand painted original. Festive ribbons and vintage look crepe paper fringe makes these the perfect addition to your Halloween decorations!  Market will update at 10 AM Eastern time.

STJ Witch paddle

It's time for a new update for Spooky time Jingles and this is something brand new for me.  It's a spook spanker!   Ever wanted someway to protect your self from wicked witches, ghost, and goblins?  Well, this is how.  This wooden paddle was so fun to paint and I must say, i think the witch face turned out especially well.  So wonderfully wicked.  You can check out my piece and some others by my fellow artists at:
See you there and thank you for stopping by.

Easter Goose eggs

Here are the rest of my Goose eggs ready for the Pfatt market update on the 10th of this month.  These real goose eggs are so fun to paint and 3 times the size of a regular egg.  I love vintage Easter postcards and took my inspiration from them.  Each little rabbit and duck were painted from photos.  They are so pretty all together.  I will be selling them separately.  Please contact me for more info if interested in purchasing. Thanks for dropping by! Tammy (sold)

Easter goose eggs for Pfatt

The Pfatt marketplace update for February is coming up on the 10th and I am still doing Easter eggs.  This is the first of three or four eggs I hope to offer.  They are real goose eggs and much sturdier and larger (3 1/2 to 4") than chicken eggs.  I painted it with all original hand painting in pretty pastel colors. I then put it in a small vintage wooden bowl with pink German grass.  How fun is that?  I plan to ask $50.00 each with free shipping.  Please contact me if interested and visit my blog for updates on the others I am working on.  Thank you for sharing my art with me.

Pfatt and STJ updates

I had two market place updates, Pfatt on the 10th and STJ , today the 13th.  Due to technical difficulties with my art lights (aggghhh) I am slow to get this posted.  The Easter eggs and Valentine cookies are sold.  I am doing happy pieces this month because in Montana its  pretty dreary until Spring.  These happy little faces just make me smile and lift my spirits.  They are all sculpted from paper clay and I am particularly happy with the yawning egg and cookie.  How fun is that?  I think that is why I called my studio "Light and Shadow".  I love to do happy smiling faces but then I love to do old craggy witch faces too.  Just depends on mood I guess or inspiration.  I am going to be starting some flower seeds here too in a few days.  That always lifts my spirits!  Thanks for dropping by.
PS I added a picture of my Easter egg gourds before the were painted so an idea of the process can be seen.

Merry Christmas!

Just wanted to wish everyone Merry Christmas!  I am done for the year except still plugging away on a few shoe commissions.  These last two ornaments just make me smile big time.  I am so lucky to work at something that makes me smile and just plain happy most of the time.  Thank you all for your support, your purchases and your friendship.  I look forward to the new year and all it will bring.  Wishing you all joy, Tammy
