The holidays are swiftly approaching and I am getting ready for another folk art show. I have listed a few Christmas folk art ornaments, like the sweet snow girl above, in my etsy shop for those who don't live in sunny Florida, which is where my next show takes place!
The Holiday Art Boutique features a local group of artisans creating a variety of holiday and everyday items in my home town of St. Augustine, FL, Sunday, Dec. 14, 11 am - 6 pm, at 8 Sevilla Street. I will be among the gathering of artists who will set up shop on the front porch of an old Victorian home in downtown St. Augustine. No admission necessary! Just come and pick up that unique gift for someone special, grab a homemade cookie and enjoy the holiday spirit.
In the meantime, check out my etsy shop, where I will be adding Christmas pieces all week long. Ho, ho, ho!!!
At this time of year, my studio looks less and less like summer and more like the upcoming holidays. Halloween is the first on my list and I am painting and spinning cotton figurines for my two fall folk art shows. I hope you can join me for one of them!!
Halloween is a favorite holiday of mine and if I could, I would celebrate every last day of the month! Alas, it is not so. BUT...I have created an online art class featuring a Halloween project that will make you feel like it's Halloween every time you plug it in and light it up! It's a Halloween Witch Lighted Theater class at ArtfulGathering.com. And there's still time to register! The class features seven videos that you can watch 24/7, any day, all day, until August 26. I show you how to create a lighted theater complete with a witch, black cats, rickety fence, spooky tree and autumn leaves. The best part is you can learn the techniques and create lighted theaters for your personal use with any theme! Join us in the haunted house and let's celebrate Halloween! Don't forget to register!!
