Halloweeny

Happy Halloween!

Besides this pumpkin girl, I haven't really been in the Halloween spirit, but I did get together some of my recent in-progress shots and I've been told, it's kind of creepy...

Hands holding bones and moss

painting eyeballs- wooooo

Bulging eyeballs from my unfinished head


Not in-progress, my cat:

Almost winky, Byron with a "tangereen", I ambushed him while sleepy

Come November, I'll have a few new dolls to debut. I finished the siamese sisters, a couple of birds (from basic to fanciful) and will also have a couple of lovely little maidens to show for my time away.

Till then, have a fun Halloween everyone! (I myself am just glad it stopped snowing!)

Absences

Hi Everyone,
I know it's been a while since my last post. I took an informal hiatus from making things to accommodate additional freelancing earlier this summer and then at the onset of September, someone very close to me passed away.
It's been a surreal experience overall and nothing could have prepared me for this loss. Needless to say, my work and communication were put on the back burner but after about a month I was able to find pockets of time with which I was able to pick up a few of my older started pieces and feverishly finish them off one by one. I still have a lot of old work to finish (and of course, new projects to start) but you can expect to see many new pieces here and in my Etsy shop within the next couple of weeks.

To those who noticed my absence and reached out, I thank you very much. It was fuel for my work when I was finally able to get back to it.

I still have photos to take and things to organize so I'm going to leave you with one of my favorite nature/art videos that feels very appropriate for what I'm feeling and who I lost. It's one of the most spectacular accounts of nature I have seen and I highly encourage watching this and his other videos if you haven't already.
