WOW! What an incredible show this year at Halloween and Vine. All of the artists really outdid themselves with wonderful new stuff. We arrived on Saturday morning to find about 100 people in line waiting for the doors to open and we had steady crowds until closing time. People were really snatching up things. No matter what the economy, you just can't keep those Halloween collectors from buying. Ginny and Christie and their staff did an incredible job this year of organizing, caring for the artists, decorating, etc. My witches hat is off to them. Hurray!
We had a great time visiting with all of the artists and catching up on goings on since we met last year. I was delighted to meet people in person that I know from the internet and to really get to know some of the folks that have been following my activities.
My friend Frank took some great photos of the event. So if you have never been to Halloween and Vine (shame on you), you can get a feel of the show and see some of the artists and their work. Check out his album at http://gallery.me.com/frnkmor#100113
The bright orange witch above is Maisie Malevento (her last name translates from the Italian to "bad wind"). She seemed to grab a lot of attention in all of her bright silliness. She sold right quick. I think I will be leaning more toward her style of figure this year. She was so much fun to make.
I promise more fun things soon here on the blog, but be sure and check out my ETSY store for lots of goodies. (It may take me a couple of days to get everything up, but I promise...soon.)
