I guess I should explain about the art that I am now listing in my Etsy shop . I have decided to part with things in my personal collection . Years ago I sold my work through gift shops and catalogs and art shows in the U.S.

I had to keep a consistency then . I would come up with a design and I would make dozens of the same item , [ I have sculpted HUNDREDS of things ] ... but I always kept for myself the very best ones , so I would be able to remember and have a reference if I had to make more ...
I don't know if I will ever go back to making these folk art pumpkins and Santas
I have moved on from them ... I really want to paint now and make new things , so
my plan is > to keep listing these type of things to the end of this year and then move on and fill my shop again with paintings and maybe art dolls ... I don't know . not sure ...but I have to clear my house and my head .
I just know that I can't go back
I am even putting lots of clocks on etsy . Ones that I don't think I will make anymore . MAYBE I will still make Crabby cats . Crabby cat has a place in my heart forever .
so I hope you will take a look ....
thanks for .... letting me vent , and thanks for visiting !

Halloween dummy board

I painted this with acrylics on board,
and cut it out with my saw .
It's a dummy board that can stand .
there is a little piece of board on the back so it stands .
17 inches tall

Dog Painting with a vintage look

I finished this painting today .
It is a painting of an old chalk ware dog that I bought at Stratford Antique Center .
It's a chalkware bank that I guess they gave as a carnival prize .
I love the dog
so I painted him

it's a very vintage look in a very old frame

It measures a little over 10 x 13 inches

I am in the mood to get Halloween and Christmas things in my Etsy shop
Here are some things that will be on soon .
It just takes so long to load them on and write the descriptions etc
I hate that part I procrastinate .
so if by any chance there is something here that interests you ... let me know and I could hold it for you
AH ......AUTUMN ..... October
falling leaves
Chilly Scenes of Winter [ remember that book ? and movie ? ]

my favorite time of year is almost here
meanwhile I still have my bag of frozen corn to cool me down

Frozen bags of corn

It is SO SO SO hot in my house .
It's so hot .....I put a bag of frozen corn down my shirt .

It helped .

and I thought about fall and winter and cool brisk air .
..... I decided to start adding Halloween and Christmas things to my Etsy shop .
Go see the new things I made !

I know it's a little early but when I had the bag of corn from the freezer in my shirt ...I felt much more cherry and happy .

We don't have air conditioning ,,,,, ugh ,,,,,,
be very grateful if you have it because these last few days have been miserable hot [ for me anyway ]
funny > it doesn't seem to bother my husband as much . He refused the frozen bag of string beans that I offered him .
My cats look awful . I feel bad for them .
Oh >>>>>> I am looking forward to the fall !
