Hello October!

So happy I can finally turn off the AC lol
What a great month! and so much fun to be had this month ;)
here is what I have been up to ;)

We have been hitting the local farmers market and now the pumpkins are starting to appear. yay!

Halloween is filling the stores, I have my Halloween decorations all up inside the house, but not the porch yet. I'll post pics when I get it all together, hope by the end of next week.

I went to Halloween and Vine this year for the first time!
I plan to show there next year. I feel like the mayor of Halloweentown only 364 days until next Halloween! I have to plan early or it sneaks up on me... eek! It has been presented to me a few times over the last few years; I have had intentions to show there, but life has gotten in the way, and like I said Halloween has snuck up on me. 
But I am beyond excited to do this show! 

We are hitting Disneyland this month too, so excited going to the Mickey Halloween party and I have to get my costume together ;) 

I have some art dolls being shown at the Jaffa Museums Doll Art show, exciting!!

I have some art dolls and some larger paintings at a local gallery my friend recently opened ;)

and I have been working on custom art dolls and art dolls for my Etsy shop! like non stop 
which is always exciting!!

Happy October everyone!!

Turn on The AC!

Hello my dear Blog ;)
It is so hot here, daily it ranges from 80-110. After a few days of 110, 80 doesn't feel like much of a relief.
Crank up the AC and close all the curtains...only go out at night. Play spooky music or watch creepy movies. I am starting to believe it could be close to autumn, well trying to convince myself.
Downstairs I can create a cool oasis, upstairs is another matter. Heat rises and windows that have no covering let in the dreaded sunshine... oh misery... I don't think I will sleep upstairs until September. 

Sculpting has become either an early morning or evening activity as well. Warm polymer quickly becomes sticky polymer in the heat. Sculpting what started out as tiny hands soon become long elongated octopus tentacles. Little noses flatten on the faces and perky eye sockets start to look like droopy dopey ghosts. Not that ghosts are bad at all...maybe I should go with it? lol
ahh it isn't all that bad, a little bit of exaggeration going on ;) but I need to embellish to get the point is hot here.

Along with the illusion that it is Autumn in my studio, I feel the urge to get some spooky girls done.
And as usual I take a look at those who have come before :D

From traditional dressed to dark wicked all the way to the sea, a sampling of wee witches from the past <3

I have been using these coffins for a long time now as a comfy resting place for the creepier girls ;)

What I really love about them is that I get to paint them and use some extravagant vintage trims, millinery flowers of all sorts and fringes ;)
