It was fun carving this pumpkin with my son and even though it was messy, the outcome was worth it.
October has been filled with interesting adventures and the surprises of the days have been a welcome delight. We had a community yard sale yesterday and I met some very interesting people. Glad to know that I am not the only odd ball in town.
Halloween is one of our favorite times of the year. We all dress up and take our son trick-or-treating and enjoying the fun of looking at all of the creative costumes and house decorations that the community has painstakingly labored over. The house with the full size candy bars is always my favorite.
The month is almost over and The Day of The Dead is up next.
This is a Pen and Ink drawing that I did with recycled paper for a Day of The Dead art show a few years ago. I almost sold this yesterday at the yard sale. It is still available by the way.
This rich tradition to honor the dead is such a lovely ceremonious time and there will be several events happening to commemorate this day here in the Arizona area. One particular event will be at Heritage Mortuary November 2nd. Check their website for more details.
This is my latest creation and so far I don't have a name for her, but it will come soon. She is made of glass beads and I love how it all came together.
Up Next.... Prescott Center for the Arts Holiday Wrap show. Starting November 6 to December 19th the gallery will be filled with art, crafts, gift items, baskets, scarves, and all kinds of things that you can buy as holiday gifts for that someone special in your life. So come on by and get your Christmas shopping done. I will have a few of my paintings, special gift boxes that contain a warm handmade crocheted scarf and journal, and some stationery with my painting designs on them. Come for the opening night and meet and greet everyone involved on November 6th at 5 pm to 7 pm.
Prescott Center For the Arts gallery is located at 208 North Marina Street, Prescott Arizona. Their opening hours are Mondays 11 am to 3 pm, Tuesdays to Saturday 10 am to 3 pm, and Sundays noon to 4 pm.
