UPDATE: Sold...thank you, Nancy!!!!
I have been working like crazy in the studio for weeks tying up loose ends and meeting obligations I have had so I could start work on my new Halloween creations. It is official, the calendar is clear and I am now working on Halloween exclusively until the 2013 season is over. I have signed my contract to return to the Halloween show, Ghoultide Gathering, in Chelsea, Michigan, for another year and I am delighted to be returning with new works. With that said, my brain is whirling and the pencil has been put to paper so as not to lose those precious ideas and notions. Some works are already being translated into paper mache and paint and I hope some of them will delight and enchant you as Halloween approaches.
I realize tomorrow is Easter and a bit early for Halloween, but the bunnies have already fled the studio the minute they spotted the Halloween drawings plus the orange and black paint beginning to replace the pastels of the season. That is when "Trick or Treat Stanley" stepped forward with his little kitty mask and candy cup and asked to be offered early to customers....(I actually think he is secretly hoping there will be some extra Easter candy to be placed in his candy container.)
"Trick or Treat Stanley" is a one-of-a-kind original, hand sculpted from paper mache, with wood, wire and feathers added to complete the figure. He stands at just over 14" to the top of his curled stem and holds his kitty cat mask (that lines up with his eyes when placed over his face) and a candy cup with his twin, Oliver's, image painted on it. He will come signed, dated and numbered.
Stanley will be available Easter day on the EHAG Emporium, at 9 p.m. Eastern Daylight Time. The first person to email me at, email@example.com, after the Emporium opens wishing to purchase Stanley will become his proud new owner. I hope you find him to your liking!
Happy Easter all!
