September madness is in full swing here, as I prepare for the big show and still try to keep up with auctions and commissions. The house is suffering and the dust bunnies are winning, but I've always been of the opinion that a clean house is the sign of a life misspent, so I'm not too worried. ;)
I do have a couple of new pieces to show for all the late hours I've been keeping...
First, back by popular demand is Wicked Jack, listed on eBay now. He's long been one of my favorite characters...the perfect combination of wicked and whimsical!
The next piece I have to show you is very special to me...."Familiars"; a table/bench featuring two beautiful autumn cats, modeled after my own Merlin and Arthur. Handsome boys, aren't they?
This is one of those I was sooooooooo tempted to keep, but sell it I must, so it's listed now too. :)
Let's see....what else....
Oh! I picked up several hand crafted mantle clocks today and can hardly wait to get started on them...Most will go to the Ghoultide Gathering with me, but I'm thinking I might paint just one for eBay as well, so stay tuned.
On the home front, it's apple time!
Seriously, nothing says autumn to me like fresh local apples, and the prices at the farm stands can't be beat right now. These are a combination of granny smith and gala, which will make their way into an apple cake and a batch of homemade applesauce this week....soooooooooo good!
Not a lot else new here, just painting, painting and more painting...and feeling more than a little overwhelmed by everything that must be done before we leave for Michigan. It will come together though, it always does. ;)
Again, many thanks for all the kind comments and emails - I WILL catch up when I return from the show, I promise! In the meantime, there are Halloween pieces calling my name....
Back again soon!
