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!

Fading into the eerie mist...

For the most part, this blog is now going to go to sleep, until the passion, mischief and mayhem begin to unfold again come summer 2012 and the 4th Annual Online Hallowe'en Artists' Studio Trick or Treat starts to build momentum! Until then, rest, more or less, in peace!

(I'm blogging all year over at, join me there!)

If you're an artist and want to hop onto our Haunted Haywagaon, please email me and I'll let you know what's involved.

On to December...

Okay, so I'll admit it! Hallowe'en is over! Fine! Go ahead, celebrate that other Holiday, if you must!
But do it in style, like with these critters from my Hallowe'en artists:

Pam Pontious' merry rooster, Amy Thornton's snowman pin, Melanie Clark's Frostie Bear,

Martha Burch's Candy Cane Santa and Beth Hogan's Snow Lady with Lights!

These and so many more are waiting for you at but only for a very limited time starting today!!

We are in the Fall issue of BATS magazine! This issue came out in good time to show off our gorgeous poster and bring attention to our tour from the bat-loving community!

We had some excellent advertisting this year (all free), no wonder our statistics soared!

It's over...on to 2012!

Our tour for 2011 is officially over, but I have some excellent numbers to share!

Number of unique visitors: 1958
Number of sales: 20
Amount collected for Bat Conservation International (not including $ from artists' sales): $800.00

Number of happy bats: priceless!!!!

There are many additional side-effects that are not measurable, like how many people now know about bats and their plight. So I think all the artists deserve to take a bow and bask in a swelling round of applause! And I thank each and every one of you, artists and trick or treaters, for supporting this event and making it the success that it is.

Here's to making a difference for the bats!
