"Fred's" fashion sense went out the window below the waistline, however...our temperatures got a little warm here and he opted for shorts, plus an unfortunate selection of orange socks to top his rather large over-sized boots. Kids...what are you going to do with them?!!
This figure was such fun to sculpt and paint!! Hope you like him!

The second piece of news is a bit more serious. Two years ago I was contacted by a very enthusiastic young woman regarding her idea to begin a new online marketplace, "SpookyTime Jingles". I decided to join the marketplace and started on a journey that was full of excitement and growth for both me and my work. "SpookyTime Jingles" gave my work tremendous exposure and provided me with the opportunity to meet a plethora of extremely talented artist and avid collectors. I will always be grateful for this experience, but my production level has slowed as I'm working in greater detail, and other obligations began to need attention so I had to make a tough decision. I contacted Dani last week because I'm leaving STJ. This month was my last month as one of the artists on "SpookyTime Jingles". You will still be able to find my work, but I won't be offering monthly works as I have in the past. Please continue to support STJ and it's artists...after all, it is where spooky and sweet commingle!!
Enjoy your weekend!

Off to go mix some paper mache clay and get my fingers back into the mess. Sort of like making mud pies.
Have a great and creative day!

Here is Fred with his torch in one hand, and the other hand will be holding a trick or treat bucket that isn't in the photograph.

As always, thank you for your consideration. (He is hoping to move to a warmer climate)
Have a great time looking at all of the new offerings this month!

I arrived home and had a moment when I checked email and realized I had almost forgotten what day of the month it was and that my SpookyTime Jingles update was to be done today. Where is my brain? (please don't answer that)
Let me introduce you to "Lester Lumina." He is a fun little fellow full of Halloween magic that so loves the holiday he wears a "31" on his hat....
carries a skelly bucket to collect all of his treats in.....
and has a bat bow tie to guide him through the night.
I'm so happy with his finish and the linear work on his cape and vest. Some of my best work to date I think.
The update is Wednesday night at midnight!
Lastly, I sadly had to turn the heat back on again today. Wet and cool does not make for great working conditions so after looking at the thermostat and realizing it wasn't my imagination, on came the heat. Ahhhh, warm hands!! Wild spring here in the Plains!!

I made a monkey-cats ornament with lots of details in the web covered night sky with stars and swirls....
a close up of the celestial spider in the night sky along with her bat friends and "Jake's" poor little mouse buddy, "Mortified"!
More bats and a partial view of the moon boy...
a better view of the moon boy with his bucket and fancy party hat...
and finally, "Jake", with his mouse buddy, "Mortified"!!
The auction has started!!
Hope you like it!!
