All In A Day's Work for Hallowbaloo and All Hallow's Art Fest

 I'm starting to get in the groove for Halloween shows now, and am having more fun than a person has a right to! Above is a raven done in acrylics on an 8 x 10 gallery wrap canvas.
Here's a whimsical night time man in the moon scene, with jack o' lanterns on three sides, shining in the light of the moon.

For  those who live in the Seattle area you can join us for Hallowbaloo September 15, 2018. Click here for more information: HALLOWBALOO

PFATT Marketplace Is Brimming with Love and Springtime

 I shot right past Valentines Day this year and into spring because it's been a rather warm and even somewhat greening winter. Okay, maybe greening isn't a real word, hmmm or is it? Regardless,  I was in the mood for some different adventures in creativity.
I love re-purposing vintage finds, such as the Chickidoo's basket, which is a vintage jello mold, all gussied up with paint and tiny pink pom trim. Shaker Bunny is just that, a vintage milk glass salt shaker, with hand sculpted bunny head, scalloped trims, tinsel garland and flocked blossoms. For more information come on over to the PFATT Marketplace.

Primitive Folk Art Americana Santa

My grandchildren like stuff, all sorts of stuff, including things to flavor their water. When they were here a couple of  summers ago their mom bought them a drink flavoring in a tiny bottle that just spoke Santa to me. I know, I'm rather weird like that. So out came the clay, and within an hour or two of sculpting, the Santa came to be. He's available at ETSY

Fall Into the Holidays - A Thanksgiving Santa

I really wanted to give this santa a warm and inviting look for the holidays. He's suitable for year round display, with his plaid coat and handsome looks. He's perfect for a cabin in the woods, or palatial log home, or even a Northwoods cottage. You can find this handsome Santa at MothersDreamRtworks

Another Reason to Fall Into the Holidays

Autumn lives in our community right now. 
Golden carpets soften once verdant lawns,  
sidewalks yield to crispy piles of leaves.
The mountains streaked with stripes of yellow and rust,
among forest pinacles....
stand in contrast to the pastel skies above.

Another Santa awaits a new home, perfect for decorating throughout the rest of the year.
Why not learn more about him at MothersDreamRtworks

Buford Jack has a slightly wicked smirk on his face as he plans his Halloween shenanigans. Hand sculpted features on a cured gourd, he's a one of a kind JOL that will be the talk of the home. I hear some of my creations tend to move around on their own, so be aware, he's a sneaky fella. You can purchase him at MothersDreamRtWorks

A bit of clay and a lot of magic went into creating Gordy. Warts and all, he's a loveable guy,
ready to hang out on your Halloween tree with the rest of the spooks. Find him here MothersDreamRtWorks
One of my favorite Santas to create, Victorian Dreams Santa did a bit of traveling, including a stint at the Utah State Fair, when I was demonstrating my sculpting skills for the Creative Arts Exhibit. I love his textured coat, and he certainly has a winsome smile. A Santa to melt the hearts of all who see him. He's also available here MothersDreamRtWorks

There's more to come in my etsy shop, as well as a possible piece or two on ebay. So lets FALL INTO THE HOLIDAYS TOGETHER!
