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!

Stoking the fire!

Wow! Thank you, my dearies, for your inspiring and teasing posts!!! I've been a bit down on the tour lately as I'm hitting too many "too busy, maybe next year" brick walls from invited artists... But seeing your posts stirs up the fire under this old cauldron and renews my spirit.

A collector wrote "Here in Pennsylvania we have lost almost all the bats in this area to the dreaded white nose fungus disease, so your Halloween tour is one event which is very dear to my heart." That too reminded me why we're all involved in this event: to help the bats both with our donations to work towards an end to White Nose Syndrome but also to share our love and fascination for these often misunderstood creatures. Here's to saving the bats!


  1. Glad to hear you are energized -- you should put out a call for artists on some of the lists you belong to. Someone might know someone else that would work well here. I have a link on my blog to this one - should I put a public link on facebook and my website too?

  2. Yes, yes, the more links the better!
    I have had a few very good leads and am already awaiting replies from 5 more artists, all amazing art! We will get there, by spell and sweat, blood and fire if necessary! ;) Thank you again, Martha, for listening and using your magic to stir the breeze!
