Bunnies and Eggs

I have been painting on a group of paper-mache "wabbits" the last two weeks and finished up last night by putting them on the counter with a group of porcelain eggs for a possible photo shoot this morning. I've been fighting a wicked head cold so I was a little fuzzy while doing this. Let's face it, I was more focused about getting into bed. When I walked in for my morning cup of coffee today, the partially painted "Bunnicula", as William referred to him, just made me laugh. I hadn't even realized last night that he looked like he was making a Halloween egg offering to me on the counter. You know me and Halloween, anything amuses me. I think he was trying to tell me, "get back to your Halloween pieces already!" I think I shall pay attention.

Which leads me to an announcement regarding my Halloween work.......I will be going to the Ghoultide Gathering show in Michigan, Saturday, October 2, this year!! I was very excited to be invited to the Michigan show and look forward to meeting you there. Make your plans, this is going to be an awesome show filled with wonderful artists from across the country!!!

The sad part is I will not be returning to California to the Halloween and Vine show, which I loved last year. Petaluma is gorgeous and the show partners are terrific, so even though I would like to believe they will miss me, the talent will be such that my absence will not even be noticed. Put them both on your calendars....these are don't miss Halloween shows!!!

Back to work for me....I see I still have plenty to paint!

I would love to go to Ghoultide Gathering...I'd have to take out a second mortgage on the house because I would have to buy something from everybody! Perhaps I can talk hubby into taking the ferry over from WI. The bunnies are looking great! Will you be posting them on Spooky Time Jingles? Oh, no, I just realized I'm going to be on an airplane that day. Aargh! I suppose if it's in the cards, there will be something left when I get a chance to look. (sigh!)

Love that vampire wabbit! I know just what you mean...I've been making bunnies for the last 3 weeks and am itching to get back to making Halloween!

Congratulations on the Ghoultide show! And you will MOST definitely be missed at H & V!
