Another view of some of my work. I had allot of fun with the addition of Paper Mache pieces to my collection!
This is Scott Smith of Rucus Studio. He does incredible work of pure perfection. Every piece is awesome! Scott along with his partners Christy Silacci and Ginny Betourne put on Halloween and Vine. They were gracious and welcoming hosts! My thanks to all of them!
Jorge De Rojas....what can I say? Just an incredible and gifted artist. His pieces are so creative and whimsical. He has a great sense of humor and he is....the Ho Ho Holiday King!
Paris to the Moon! If you haven't been to this shop in Costa Mesa you need to make it a point to when ever you are in the area! It is pure eye candy. Their work (Darren Calkins and his sister Danyel Montecinos) and table display is just a sampling of what you will find at this incredible shop!
Laurie Hardin of Monkey-Cats Studio. Her work is pure Halloween. So fun and whimsical, she puts her own twist on vintage inspirations from the past. Her work is wonderful and perfectly executed. Each piece...perfect!
Gabrielle Acevedo....the most fun Halloween Jewelry anywhere! e-mail her at firstname.lastname@example.org
Mythica Masks by Monique Aldabe. These are just pure fun. So beautiful. Her work is enchanting. Check out her website and gallery at www.mythicamasks.com
Vergie Lightfoot. Wonderful, Wonderful Pieces! Incredibly creative. Here sculptures take you in and mesmerize!
The most fun and incredible work by Arbutus Hunter. Just fun original folk art. I love every piece. She and her husband are also very nice people. Fun to be around and to have as fellow exhibitors!
Nancy Aldabe of Nancy's Metal Art. Really fun metal sculptures for Halloween decorating. The best I've seen anywhere!
Here's Scott again. He is opening the show in this pic, but I thought he could be also saying goodbuy until next year. Hope to see you there!
Here is an additional list of the other participants of the show this year and my apologies to all of them. Some of them were missed in the photo taking and some of them their pics just did not turn out!

My Church waiting for me to show up!! I feel so bad. I chose to stay home today and work on art. Halloween art, for my upcoming shows.
I am so sorry to say....... that I got scared about my rapidly approaching deadlines!! I bought in to that nasty little voice!!!
what can I say.....other than work in progress. Except that my studio looks like a complete mess. If I was going to be completely honest though.....and I am. It is usually a mess! I can dream of a beautiful clean studio though, can't I??

I've been working! I've been working away, trying to get ready for The Halloween & Vine Show coming up in Petaluma on September 26th. Also for The Glitterfest Fall show. I've also been doing work I haven't done much of before and that is 3 dimentional pieces in paper mache. I think I'm pretty happy with the results. Here's a "Sneek Peak" of some of my work and I threw in a couple of pics of my messy....messy....messy studio. But, you know, I'm working!!
