Jackie at Fat Jak Studio and TV Interview

In our lives we meet special people with terrific talent and Jackie of Fat Jak Studio is one of those people. I am the proud owner of a new piece by Jackie called "Scaredy Cats". This little sculpture is a visual delight and Jackie's eye for detail and polished finish are something to marvel at. Below is the piece on top of the Trick or Treat box she sent me with the sculpture. The box makes a perfect sculpture base just in time for Halloween!!


The detail doesn't stop on the front of the piece, the next photograph shows that each "Cat" has a different shaped tail...what a stitch!!!


The 2 little figures each hold a "purse" or trick or treat bag made of elegant paper to coordinate with their partner's little pointed hat.

And those faces, love those faces!! Below are the close ups of Scaredy 1 and Scaredy 2. Can't you just imagine them saying BOO or making an oooohhhh sound with those little circular mouths!!! This piece is pure joy and I can't thank Jackie enough for sharing her talent with me!!!


A face anyone would love!! Thank you Jackie--thank you, thank you!!


Next, I did the TV interview this morning and mentioned SpookyTime Jingles and our artists' "blog-land". I hope I was able to get some interested collectors to come take a peek at our world. The 2 hosts were delightful and I had fun doing it so I hope it brings us some good fortune!!! Let me know if you get contacted by a Nebraska collector through this interview!!

Well, that is about it and I need to get to painting in the worse way!!
Happy creating all and have a great day! I plan on it!!
