Summer is here, and the 4th of July Holiday is right around the corner, so I am working on Americana pieces, and some Halloween pieces for PFATT'S Halloween in June party that opens on June 10th! Please remember to stop by and see all of the wonderful Halloween art being offered, and you will also have the chance to win door prizes, so make sure to sign up for that! I have donated a Halloween Optical Lens pendant as a door prize, and you will be able to see a picture of it, and all of the door prizes available on the PFATT website in just a few days.
These are pictures of things I'm working on for PFATT and my first show of the year coming up this Sunday. One of these pieces is already finished, but I wanted to show you all what my pieces look like while they are in process....these are hands and feet....can you guess who they belong too? These are some wonderful old shoes I'll be filling.....I just love antique high button shoes ! They all have a story to tell. Here are some heads that I have sculpted....they are waiting for paint and crackle!
Here is an Americana piece that I am in the middle of. I bought a few antique children's blocks, and this one was just perfect for a patriotic piece!
And here is the head and torso of a piece......his little hands and feet were pictured above. If you guessed monkey, you were right!
I will be back later with pictures of these completed pieces. If any of you are in California please come by the show this Sunday June 10th at the Hillview Community Center in Los Altos. We will be set up in the courtyard next to the museum from 9am to 4pm. This folk art show runs in conjunction with the California Country Show, the best antique Americana show on the west coast! You can find more details on the show by visiting the events page on my website.
Here is one last picture for you today....my girl Carrie! She is always right next to me while I'm working. Here she is sitting on my chair....silly kitty, she thinks it's her chair!
