Tonight's been a great night: I have two artists that I very much wanted to share with you turning on their lights on our Hallowe'en map!
First, Martha DeRaimo Burch has come onboard! Martha is very well known in the Teddy Bear world and has a true flair for Hallowe'en! She's also creating "altered art": 3D books that are very eye-catching and very Hallowe'en! You can take a peak at her work on her website,
http://www.marthasbears.com/ (and don't forget to check out the "rat's ass", a personal favorite!)
Secondly, Tammi Beaulieu will be joining us! I met Tammi at Guelph's FaeryFest in 2008 and still remember her elegant, beautiful dragon sculptures! They remind me of seahorses, very tranquil and graceful. Tammi also makes wearable paper masks, dragons of course! I am very excited about seeing her work, I think you will be too! Some examples are on this site: http://lilacgrove.deviantart.com/
It is my deep, dark pleasure to announce the annual Online Hallowe'en Artists' Studio Tour! This is my "treat" to you all, a special way to celebrate my favorite season, share some exceptional art by artists I personally admire and raise money for animal charities. With this blog, I hope to keep you up-to-date with proceedings and progress as we approach the yearly "launch" on October 1st!
