What a Spooktackular weekend!

Happy Post-Halloween!

I hope yours was "boo-tifull". It was most a perfect weekend here in Ohio.  
Crisp and clear days filled with an abundance of treats   

 The weekend began Friday downtown with my dear friend Pattie. 
 We sat up our show for "Final Friday" in her studio at the Pendleton Art Center. 

After delivering our "Pimp out your Pumpkin" for their contest we headed to the Art Museum for some creative girlfriend time. 
Shared a delightful lunch and toured the Thomas Gainsborough and the Modern Woman Until 01/02/11Rouchenburg
AND the Wedded Perfection: Two Centuries of Wedding Gowns Until 01/30/11 exhibits. 
Both truly amazing exhibits and a blissful way to "research".   

Some of the creative pumpkin's we saw...

Title: "Thanks, Mr. C".  Tom Bosley, Happy Days TV dad passed on October 19, 2010
after battling lung.  Pearl is the color for Lung Cancer.  Ironic that my dad is living with the same disease. 
I dedicate this pumpkin in honor of his courage.   

Patties Pumpkin theme "the volcano eruption in Iceland". 
Ah to be stranded in Paris...
The Reds new mascots

How Pumpkin pie is made...hilarious!

  I want to thank Pattie for allowing me to be a guest artist in her studio.  If you are looking for amazing sculpture for yourself or as a gift I highly recommend her pieces!
