Ghoultide Gathering, 2014

Time seems to be flying by, and all of a sudden it is almost mid-April!  I have been in the studio working on Halloween figures and thought I would share.  Yep, that's right, Halloween production has already started in paper mache.  I have a few witches going, a number of pumpkin characters, a couple of owls and numerous other sketches of new figures scheduled for sculpting.


I've noticed something the last few years....I seem to be getting slower the older I'm getting.  I'd like to believe that my figures are getting more complex, but I'm afraid it just might be a wondering brain and arthritic fingers.  Regardless, things are at least getting done in the sculpting stage and I'm preparing for a period of painting to bring the characters to life.


I am also happy to share that I will be returning to Ghoultide Gathering this fall in Chelsea, Michigan.  I look forward to being a part of this wondrous event and meeting once again with such a group of "ghoulie" artists.  I think I love them as much as I love the work they create and what a wonderful gift it is to be a part of something with such great spirit.  You take the artists and add excited customers to the mix and it makes a day filled full of merriment!  We would love to see you there, so here is a link to Ghoultide Gathering's website for further details. 

 
Time for me to get back to the studio table to finish the sculpting!  Have a glorious weekend and a very Happy Easter.  Here is a bunny to let you know I'm still in the spirit of Spring!!!

Priscilla Paisley, My Last Bunny for 2014


Priscilla Paisley is my first female bunny rabbit.   She stands right at  9.75" tall and is covered in a paisley pattern I created for her upper torso and a line pattern I created for her lower form.  I had absolutely no idea how long it would take to paint each line, dot and swirl when I started this pattern, but by the time I had it figured out I was already too far along to back out of the process.  Days later she is finished.  This all started because I thought it would be interesting to see what I could do with a "pretty in pink" concept. Lesson learned!!


Priscilla will be for sale tomorrow afternoon on this blog (Note: my definition of afternoon is based on the Central time zone)  I will post her with her price and shipping fee.... the first collector to discover the post, wishing to purchase her and emails me with the cost of the piece in the subject line will be the collector I will sell the work to.


Here is a close up of Priscilla's German glass glitter egg, bow and thin line that divides the paisley pattern from her line pattern.  It also shows the detail of the paisley design.


Priscilla has a single paisley design on her back....I had to stop somewhere!!!

Hope to see you tomorrow!
