There are some wonderful art shows that celebrate our favorite holiday, Halloween, coming up soon! In order of date, Tinsel and Treasures in Alamo, Ca is on Sept. 18. Halloween and Vine in Petaluma, Ca on Sept. 25 draws a loyal crowd of collectors every year and this year promises to be as wonderful as ever. On October 2, Michigan's Ghoultide Gathering has lots of artsy goodies in store for their fourth show, and on October 16th, the 11th Annual Halloween Art Exhibit opens its doors to frightfully good fun in Chicago. If you're lucky enough to attend any of these shows, do drop us a line and tell all!

I had so much fun working on this very unique Halloween Cat & Cart. The cat's body is carved wood and I have hand sculpted his head using paperclay. He is painted all the way around with my original design. He can be displayed on the cart or not. He is not attached. He stands 12" tall.
A purrfect OOAK Halloween collectible.
Thanks for looking ~ Shirley Olsen of Magic Brush Studio
Listings on Ebay this week include this beautiful hand painted Vintage Wood Bowl made by the Munising Wood Products Company. The finish on this old bowl was pretty worn so we sanded it down to the bare wood and repainted it for Halloween. Design and lay out by Sherry Byrum painted with acrylics by artist Ron Byrum!! To see the listing click here! For a larger view of the bowl just click on the photo of the bowl above!
