With Halloween approaching I have had numerous requests to sell my work, and for that I'm very thankful. This time of year I get so busy putting all of my energy into the show and working with blinders on that I forget that not everyone is able to drive to Michigan to attend such a fun Halloween event as Ghoultide Gathering. I have been thinking about that a lot this week and decided I needed to list a new piece on the PFATT Marketplace update for those collectors unable to attend. I also will be hosting a blog sale here on the evening of October 8th.
This Tuesday, September 10, at 10 a.m. Pacific (noon-Central), PFATT Marketplace will open and I will offer one work for sale, "There's a Spidey On My Bucket!" The first person to email me after the marketplace opens with the price of the piece in the subject line will be the collector I sell the work to.
The work shows little pumpkin boy, Wesley, slightly alarmed at the fact that there is a spider hovering over the top of his trick or treat bucket. Wesley isn't scared of spiders, he just doesn't want any of his Halloween goodies to disappear due to a certain arachnid hanging over his treat bucket.
The poor little spider means no harm , besides, from the looks of his smile he doesn't have a very good dental plan for indulging in sugary sweets.
Wesley stands 13.5" to the top of his stem, is 7.5" wide by 6" deep, which is a little bit bigger piece than some of my other works. He is rich in paper mache surface texture for that vintage look and is the first piece I have offered with the new 3-D eyes I have been working on this summer. They give the characters a little more expression to their faces....don't you think?
I hope to hear from you on Tuesday! (It's my birthday so I may be eating cake when the marketplace opens!)
Have a great week!
Oh, and a special thank you to artist, Lori Rudolph, for my new blog banner. She does such wonderful work! Thank you Lori!
