Of WIPS, and Fall, and Candy Corn! Hooray Halloween is on it's way!

I look forward to Summer every year...time to thaw out from the long, bone-chilling winters of the Northwest, where frost-covered lawns make way for lush gardens, and planters are filled with pretty blossoms!














But my favorite time of year? Well Fall of course!


















What better time to display one's favorite Halloween art?!  And create new works-in-progress as well! Right now I'm working on some paintings; all different sizes of canvas, from 4x 5 to 6x6 and maybe larger. I've just finished a few skelly paintings which you saw in the previous post and now I'm doing a few more of those plus some new Halloween-themed mixed media as well.

Note to self: Must get onto some sculpting! I have a few pumpkin folk on the drawing board. And do you remember this little sculpt I did last year? One of my Woodland Winter collectibles. And such a sweet face! My dear and favorite fan AND BWOS blog-stalker (lol), Janelle from Texas, got this as a Christmas gift from her hubby. How thoughtful of him huh? I think she's been waiting for me to do some more in time for this Christmas...I'm on it Janelle!
 


















I'll leave you now with some very "spirited" Halloween photos to get you in the mood.. I'll be back shortly with pics of my new work!  Till then...unpleasant dreams!

Oooh such inspiration! Must do the same here!
The southern summer is quickly winding down, cooler each day, and may I even be so bold as to say, a wee bit of autumn wafts in on the air.
Love the Hagwitch on the lawn. I can relate! =)
