Giddy Over Ghoultide!

Teeheeheeheeeeee!! (That was my best witch's cackle) :)

With less than a week until the big day, you can only imagine the madness around here...

The signs and boxes are all completed, a few treat bowls in progress, and one very large piece will be started later this evening. My dining room table and buffet look a bit like the Halloween art explosion at the moment, hehe...

Just four days until we pack up the Beetle and hit the road!

I did manage to list one piece on eBay, probably the last until we return from the show. It's just too difficult to manage listings while out of town - but collectors who can't make it to the show will see lots of new goodies listed the week of the fifth. It's funny, you'd think I'd come back exhausted and tired of painting, but it's the exact opposite. :)

Anyway, here's the eBay piece listed now, a little homage to the raven, with a sparkly twist...

I'd forgotten how much fun a little glitter can be. ;)

Now, back to the Ghoultide Gathering (and apologies if I sound like a broken record) I cannot tell you how inspiring and energizing it is to be in the company of so many wonderful artists, and then to meet collectors in person, too....it's just the BEST. I only wish there were more time to spend with everyone - it gets CRAZY busy at times! In fact, if you're planning to attend, do try to get there early - people start lining up well before the doors open to get first pick of all the goodies. And do stop by and introduce yourself! I'll be the goddess-size woman dressed in black, lol....

Okay, that's it for now....there's a trio of treat bowls calling my name, and I must get them finished. No rest for the wicked, eh? :)

Hope to see you soon, and if not, I promise to post lots of photos!!

Sherrie steered me in your direction. I love your art and your attitude. The small town in MI you are going is adorable. I love the old Model "R" cars (I realize that was a different gathering) and the feel of the town. Good luck and have fun. Blessings, Janet
