WIPs: keeping busy!

Not by any means anywhere near finished - I have lots more embellishments to add, including a poem I wrote.

It's odd, but I find it a lot of fun to paint plain wooden boards and plaques such as what the above winged Jack will be fastened upon. I enjoy the process of painting overall, but seeing the wood grain absorb the variances of color the way it does makes me happy.

And, of course, gotta have a little bit of glitter here and there as well. Glitter always brings forth the magic of a piece, in my humble opinion.

I posted this on my Facebook page and received several inquiries whether it would be for sale soon. Well... yes, but not until the Monsters & Merriment show in September. 
This piece is as yet unnamed, but once it's completed, I'll post the finished photos here and on my FB pages.

I have several more pieces I'm working on that I'll post in the days to come. But for now - back to the painting table for me! Halloween is only 175 days away!

What the best dressed ghoul will be wearing this season ...

My handsome friend Robert modeled the tee shirt for me during his visit to Nashville  last autumn

We still have a few tee shirts left over from last year's Monsters & Merriment show.
Only $15.  Sizes: S-M-L-XL
Get one before they are gone forever!

Closeup to show details of the hand-drawn original design by our dear friend Ethan Black!

Arising from the tomb .... SOON!

We will be celebrating the 95th anniversary of NOSFERATU, F. W. Murnau's legendary vampiric silent film. Lots of spooky cool monster swag will be available from a plethora of artists who have joined us this for this year's show.
