I and my skellies will be at “A Walk in the Woods,” pop-up art show in Grand Haven on October 10, 2021. Rain date is 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.
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.
What more appropriate painting for the week of Halloween and Day of the Dead could there possibly be? I can’t think of one either.
This week, all iterations of The Skelly Dance are 25% Off. That means all prints, cards, canvas wraps and the original painting are available at a sweet discount! Sale ends Sunday, November 4, 2018. Happy Halloween! Happy Dia de los Muertos!
Best reason to explain to your mom why you’re buying skeleton art:
“You’re dead a lot longer than you’re alive, so you may as well have fun with it.”
Best reaction to working out creative issues with skeletons:
“I am a practicing psychologist, my dear, and I have to tell you, I’ve been coming to the Shrimp Festival for years. I’ve seen mermaids, turtles, seascapes and octopi, but I have never seen dead people dancing on the beach before. Congratulations. Your art is unique.”
Best reason to have a huge canvas print of two skeletons on a motorcycle at the front of the booth:
Reaction to Bone to be Wild at the Shrimp Festival.
Best use of noodles in a booth (even if it didn’t rain)
Steve inserting swim noodles in the corners in case of rain, which we didn’t get, but better safe than sorry!
Skelly lovers are the best!
I sold a ton of cards, some prints and one new painting (thank you, Doug!). I met so many nice people, who bought my skellies for gifts and for fun and for giggles. It was a glorious two days. Hard work, but so worth it. Thank you for coming out to the Shrimp Festival. Thanks for buying my art. Thank you for all the compliments and the smiles and the laughter. You all made my weekend.
