SpookyTime Jingles Update Tonight at Midnight!
Head on over to www.spookytimejingles.com to see all the greatest in Halloween and christmas folk art plus the Holiday Hootenanny which this month is for Spring/Easter.
I didn't offer the Hootenanny this month, but below is a rabbit on stick, my first finished rabbit piece this year. He is still somewhat strange and spooky, but I like him that way. I love rabbits, when I was small, around 3, and 4, I would coax the little brown ones out of the woods to eat lettuce and carrots out of my hand. I guess they knew they had nothing to fear from such s small child. Its always so fun to see them froic about. I love the domestic varieties, too, especially the flop ears. And then there is the book, Watership Down...by Richard Adams...such an incredible read at any age. I believe I will name this rabbit Inle....

He has a black and white jester collar and ribbon and bells hang from underneath him.


A slight bit of feathering at his collar...

his splotches are so satisfying.
He is sweet and spooky all the way!

Below is my moon shaker offered on STJ this month...I love how his hat turned out. I painted very carefully this vintage looking party hat ...a wonderful hissing black cat rears its head and a witch flies high overhead...hat is finished off with crepe black fringe. I love the old timey look.
This one is BIGGER than last months, the moon is 7 inches high. I think its a great size for display. He is mounted on an old tinker toy reddish orange stick...



Here is a large grey moon,,, I am fooling around with making him a hat, too. Not sure what all to do yet. I have SO many little things. ornaments and such,laying around to finish painting.


That's all for now!
Thanks for coming by!
