It's getting to be that time of year when I start thinking about Halloween. It's the beginning of the busiest time in the year for me. In addition to my painting and children's book work I'm sketching away at plans for this years Halloween creations. I will be making a host of characters for this years Halloween and Vine show in Petaluma California and I can't wait! In addition to my regular cast of characters, I'm excited to launch my new line called The Gumples. They have their own distinct look that is different than my regular pieces. I will be making them available in my Etsy store as well as at Halloween & Vine. Check back soon to see when they will be available in my shop and to see the finished pieces.
