Sir Jack Spinner with Yo-Mo's Lace Curtain

The 2nd image of Sir Jack Spinner, host of the Pumpkin Ball is complete so I thought I would share. Jack is more formally attired in this painting and Yo-Mo went overboard creating the "lace" curtain on the left as an entrance into the ball.

Sir Jack still has on his top hat, boo-button cuffs and is carrying his skull topped walking stick, but he added a bat-bowtie, jacket with cat-head buttons and is wearing two of what I am sure are his many medals; Honor of the Smiling Skull and Order of the JOL. (After all, he has been "nighted"...or some would think I meant knighted.) He would make Ralph Lauren proud.

I'm working on Boney Belly today, brother of Skelly Belly, so if I get him completed I will add him to the blog tomorrow. So far he looks like he might be a darker character than his sibling but we will see what happens. It is still overcast this morning and the light isn't good for me to paint or sculpt so I have my fingers crossed!!

Oh, and if you didn't make it to Kim Hardt's blog yesterday you need to go take a look and leave her a note to make her feel better. She doesn't have cobwebs, dust bunnies and dust in her emaculate home, and she had a bit of a drywall sanding disaster. Here's hoping it is better today Kim!!!

I have just been selling at shows and out of the studio direct. I need to get on ETSY, like the format, but would you also recommend eBay?
This is still new to me so your input is very valuable to me.

WELL ~ Laurie I personally have had more success on eBay...more eyes!

If you do eBay set your opening bid at the minimum $ amount you would be willing to part with your piece...so you are not burned if you only get one bid.

I know Dani, Marie, & Janell (among many others) have had more success with Etsy. It is a viable option and the store listings are a steal at .20 a pop. I have had very limited success there though myself. I don't list a LOT there or often and that is probably why.

GOOD LUCK with whatever path you choose! :-)

Spooky Hugs,
