Halloween is now in full swing in the studio and I'm excited to return to the colors of orange and black...they are sort of like old friends to me. Below is the first completed Halloween character for 2011, "Peek-a-Boo Pumpty", a funny little pumpkin boy wearing devil horns and holding a bird mask, playing peek-a-boo with us. He has just thrown up his hands and uncovered his face to expose a suspiciously sweet little smile. (I never completely trust these little guys as I blame them for the dust bunnies and cobwebs in my home...okay, maybe they aren't really responsible, but it makes me feel better to think so.)
Pumpty wasn't happy about his black and white striped unitard, but I explained to him that only real pumpkin "men" could carry it off so the muttering has subsided.
This little fellow will be going to Ghoultide Gathering, September 30 and October 1, 2011, at Mill Race Village in Northville Michigan. Check the link and look at the list of wonderful artists I have the great fortune of participating with at this wonderful Halloween festival of arts. I feel so lucky to be included and know this will be another wonderful year at Ghoultide Gathering! Don't miss it!
Have a great week!
