End of the year online show!

Picture this: A virtual online exhibit showcasing eclectic, imaginative artworks! Sounds like a pretty great event, right? 💯But what if I told you that I was able to be a part of something really cool like this?  It’s true!  The @GristleartGallery has invited me to be a part of Toy Box, their end of the year online show.  I’m in creation mode for the event that kicks off on November 20th.  I’m working on 3 – 6” x 6’ collectors canvases.  Life is good, don’t you agree?

And now they’re all done! Yay! Who doesn’t want skeleton Christmas paintings? No one, that’s who! Hope you like them! See below for info about pre-show sales.

UPDATE: All my original Skel Noel paintings have now been sold! Thank you to my collectors for all your support! They’re now available on my Etsy shop as a downloadable print, in my Square shop as a greeting card, in Signed cards as, what else? a signed card, and in my Fine Art America shop as anything you can imagine. Happy Holidays, everyone!

Frida Skelly with Monkeys ofrenda display for Duncan Woods Park trunk show

Trunk show coming up in October

I and my skellies will be at “A Walk in the Woods,” pop-up art show in Grand Haven on Sunday, October 10, 2021. Rain date is Sunday, October 17.

This is going to be a fun show! I will bring all my skeleton prints, cards and stickers, plus one original (see below) and I hope to see a lot of people coming out to browse the trunks.

Frida Skelly with Monkeys all dressed up for the show!

I spent a morning figuring out how to use my Ford Focus to best advantage for this show. I especially loved making an ofrenda for Frida Skelly using some battery operated candles and lights under the hatchback. I wonder what kind of foods she might like? Bonbons, of course! I plan to add some more things to her altar to make a fitting tribute to her life and work.

Bonus! I will be giving away a Frida Skelly with Monkeys print at the show to some lucky person who fills out an entry for the drawing. I will also be drawing a random name from my subscriber list for the same prize, so keep an eye on your inbox for an announcement of the winners.

The show will go from 1 until 4 pm, and there will be lots of other artists participating, so please come if you can and show your support! Here’s some more info about Duncan Woods Park.

UPDATE

What a great time! I met a lot of new skelly art fans and sold some stuff! Also, congratulations to Kylee on winning the Frida Skelly with Monkeys print that was on display. Check your email Kylee! Plus, if you’re already a subscriber to my email list you may have won the exact same signed print, so look in your inbox for an email from me.

Thanks everyone for supporting me and my art! You’re the best.
