Mama pumpkin

I recently completed a fun sculpture of a Mama Jack o' Lantern and her babies (pumpkin seeds). They are sculpted from paper clay over gourds. I had an incredible experience with one of the babies. I had gone outside to take pictures and left them on a table to go get my camera. Just as I was going to go out the door a mama robin flew up and picked up a piece of moss and flew off.  Seconds later the male flew up and took off with one of the baby pumpkins!  It was funny but kind of heart breaking as well.  hours of sculpting and painting go into each one.  He is now officially the adopted brother. These were featured in the March EHAG Emporium and are sold.  Thank you for stopping by!

EHAG update

Tonight at 9 PM Eastern time is the monthly update of the EHAG Marketplace (Eclectic Halloween artist guild)  There promises to be some great Halloween art available this month too. If you have never checked it out before I really encourage you to. My offering this month is one of my favorite things to paint. Moons!  7 little moon gourds and  paper clay star are nestled in a vintage wooden bowl. Vintage orange tinsel makes up their nest. These are very small gourds ( 1 1/2" across) and a re very difficult to find. The bowl itself is 6" across. I have hand painted each little moon using vintage Halloween postcards for inspiration.  Each one is a one of a kind original.  I have poured hours of painting into each one but think of it as a labor of love.  I am asking $110.00 for them and offer free shipping.  Instead of the bowl, I can put ribbon hangers on them so they can be hung from a small tree. Perfect for a feather tree! As always, thank you for stopping by and sharing my art with me. The link to Ehag is:

Happy Valentines Day

Valentines day will soon be upon us and I am posting a few of the cookies I did in the past. These were completely made from paper clay! Also a sweet Valentine Queen from years ago. I am in the process of creating a Mr. Foxy piece for a commission.  Speaking of commissions, this would be the time I might be able to take requests. I am limited by time but  sometimes I can fulfill a commission.  I can be reached at the email link on the side.  Thank you for sharing my work with me!

Christmas time!

We are into the new year and I realized I did not post pictures of my Christmas creations. Hope yours was merry and bright!  First is a group Santa ornaments I did and a Santa with carved wooden birds perched on his hat. The third picture is a roly poly Santa ornament. Very tiny details as he is only 4" tall but fun to do. The last two are snowman ornaments. Love the colors and the soft blue is a favorite. Thank you for stopping by! Be sure to check out my Pinterest page (link on right) for more pictures of my work. Always happy to hear from people too!

More Ghoultide fun!

Here is a few more pieces I took with me as well as my new business/post cards!  I had to go back and make a moon man to take with me.  The head is a gourd with the features sculpted in paper clay.  The base is a very chunky wooden candle holder.

I took 25 ornaments like these pumpkins and sold them all before I got pictures. I should have know better.  I did the same with the little gourds on vintage tart pans. I had over 20 of these as well.  Oh well, a lesson learned the hard way. Always makes me sad when I don't have a picture of something I made.

Ghoultide fun!

A large (21" across wooden antique Cheesebox. In front is my wooden hand painted car with sculpted witch and stars!
My "Fly me to the moon" wooden car. So fun and it even had a trunk that opened!

This little witch brought a lot little imps to the show to make some trouble.  This was hand sculpted over a wooden base.  She also was larger at over 15".

I have neglected my blog in the last few months.  Preparing and getting ready for the Ghoultide Gathering Show took every minute of my day to get ready for.  Above is a few of the things I was able to take with me.  I was thrilled when I sold out in under 2 hours.  However, I realized I didn't even begin to have enough pieces like most of the other artists. To attend and meet the other artists and get to see all the original art was a dream come true.  It is as magical as everyone says.  It will always be a highlight of my career as an artist to be invited to ba a part of it all!  I was especially touched by the collectors who drove hundreds of miles just to meet me. Some I have known for many many years.  I am very blessed!
