This month is keeping me hopping. Below is Benny. He is a geeky little pumpkin boy that was almost named "Twick or Tweat", but I thought that might offend some people so he is just, "Big Head Benny With the Itty Bitty Bat Bow Tie." I finished him last night...well, he still needs another coat of matte finish, but the painting is done. I also finished the EHAG giveaway piece yesterday and have two other figures in partial paint. Benny will be packaged and shipped to our fearless SpookyTime Jingles leader, Dani, for her to take to the Pennsylvania Halloween Convention. I really wish I could attend but have work to get done both for the tree farm (planting season) and Monkey-Cats Studio, so I will have to be satisfied to just be there in spirit. Hope he catches somebody's fancy!!
The grass and tree fire is still rearing it's ugly head I first posted about on Monday. They had to go back out to the scene Tuesday and yesterday due to patches flaring up again. No homes were lost, however there were out buildings and the Nebraska Youth Camp buildings that were destroyed. This is also crane season here in the Platte River Valley, so this probably means some of the cranes had to relocate for their evening roost as well...they overnight on the islands and sandbars in the river (predator protection) during their 4 to 6 week stay as they prepare for their trek to Canada.
Need to get back to painting so have a great day!
