HopHopJingleBoo's Debra Schoch

When I started looking at blogs just over 3 months ago, there were some artists producing bodies of work that I found I was very strongly attracted to. I decided if I started selling my work on the internet, I was going to try to start collecting from some of these artists. I spotted this Halloween Bunny and was so sad to discover it had been sold. I liked it so much that I sent the artist, Debra Schoch, a note telling her I knew it wasn't available but that it just "spoke to me" and I wanted her to know how much I enjoyed the piece. Much to my pleasure, the person that purchased the work failed to pay for it so it was serendipitous, I was suppose to have this magical piece!! The universe had spoken!

Deb contacted me and asked me if I was interested...you betcha!! Below is my new precious. Love this piece from the tip of it's ears to the bottom of the mary jane soles of those cute little shoes. The rabbit carries an orange and black swirl carnival sucker and a small trick or treat bag and look at those stockings!!! (love stripes) I just pick it up and smile. The box also came with some other goodies and to say I was pleased is an understatement! Deb rocks!!

I hope to add to the new collection soon!! I'm watching!!!

Have a great day!!
Laurie

What a sweet, creative bunny, and you're so right..... Deb's work is awesome!

Isn't it funny how things work out sometimes? Someone doesn't pay, and that makes you incredibly happy!! Nancy

I'm a BIG fan of Debra's work! Own one of her originals as well. I wish she'd do a show in California. I hear she brings an amazing body of work to her shows.
