Halloween Samplings

The fall season is a favorite time of year with having fresh cider, maybe picking apples, and pumpkins, home made  pies, colorful leaves everywhere, hay rides, crisp morning air, fireplace warmth and many  more memories that last a lifetime. It is  one of the busiest times too for me in creating new and different work that expresses Halloween . Once again I'll be doing the Folk Art Festival of New England at the Royal Plaza Trade Center, Marlborough , Massachusetts with a preview night Oct.26th, 5PM -9PM, Sat.. 27th 10AM -5PM and Sunday10AM-3PM. If you are unable to attend the show, here is a sampling of Halloween work to enjoy that can also be found at my studio/gallery here in Glastonbury, Connecticut. If you are interested in any of the these items, refer to the number or title and email your request to me for further information.

Gallery/Studio with work displayed on two floors and  open by appointment.

This is a wood figure, # 344/1999, measures 6" h x 2.5 w.

This 8x10 painting on stretched canvas, titled "October Blaze",  painted in 1985,  was in  my private collection of earlier work and now available. The canvas edges are tacked and antiqued so it can be displayed without a frame.

The one cent candy tin measures 4"h x 4.25w and is decorated with an original stencil design and checkered top. The tin  #228/06  has a separate house on top #14/12.

There are a few happy ghosts about to knock on the door. The tree is being taken down making for a stack  of firewood near the "tree".This pine house measures 2"L x 1.25"w x..75w and is # 157/12.
This "Trick or Treat " signboard shows the little parade marching to the open door with the welcome pumpkin flag flying measures 5.5w x 6.5h  x .5w and is # 227/11.
