We had a great time at Goshen Art Walk on October the 15th; pumpkins were carved, kids laughed and I spilled a coffee or two. I worked on new designs at the show, and even used stone settings for the first time.
We also used our new credit card reader, and took our first credit card custom orders right at the show! It was a mile-stone day and made our hearts smile.
The wind blew, HARD, and broke a few displays but my son and hubby had the best attitudes, so nothing could get me down.
Here's my kiddo "working" on one of our newest peices. (I pay him in Matchbox Cars.)
New Frontiers: Stone Setting!!
I want to thank Connie Rose for her beautiful spirit, I so enjoyed your presence and thank you for loaning me a hand mirror.
I also want to say "Congratulations!" to fellow visual artist Dan Walsh (IG: @danwalsh88) , who had an amazing and inspiring display.
Thank you, Dav Walker and JD, for being my angels standing by and for always having extra smiles when I need them most.
Live Pumpkin Carving in Long Island 10/23
I will be joining some amazing artists for live pumpkin carving on Sunday, October the 23rd.
The art pumpkins weigh an average of 110 pounds, and take hours to complete. It usually took me about two to three hours to do the illustration, then another 2+ hours to carve. Old Westbury has a beautiful garden, and is the perfect setting for a leisurely, fall, stroll through the pumpkin display. Come see me at work, and enjoy the countless HOURS we have all put into making a BEAUTIFUL "Rise of the Jack'O'Lantern" display for all ages.
This entire process has been an awesome collaboration; some of the pumpkins that I illustrated, were carved by someone else and they absolutely did them justice. Others were illustrated by someone else, and hand carved by me. ABOVE: Dracula; illustrated by me. Hillary; carved by me. Bride of Frankenstein; carved by me and illustrated by Will Teran. (Old Westbury and "love" are not my work.)
I am delighted to be a part of the Goshen Art Walk this Saturday, the 15th. Please stop by and visit while I will be painting or working on a new illustration.
Hope to see you there.
I have been working all hours to illustrate, paint and carve pumpkins for Rise of the Jack O'Lantern events with a team of exceptional artists (amazing people). It has been an honor and a pure joy to sit among them.
Please take a look at "The Rise" Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/TheRISE.org/ and give it a "LIKE".
