~ Spirits in Sanford - Halloween Art Show ~

~ My tropical lime green Halloween table scape. ~

Hi Folks,

Here are the long awaited Spirits in Sanford Halloween art show pictures! It was a great show and many new friends and connections were made. I was tickled lime green to be able to attend this year and be table mates with Jorge de Rojas (HohoHalloween). The Jeanine Taylor Folk Art gallery in Sanford, Florida was a very charming venue for this special art show. All of the artist offerings were just great. It was nice to see the reactions to my work and the other artists in person. Since I sell 99% of my art online, I do not get a chance to see the actual reactions to my work. Many pictures were taken and it was hard to narrow down the selection. The show set up and preview party was on Friday Oct. 8th (costumes were encouraged). The actual show day was Sat. Oct. 9th (we had a great turnout). Enjoy!

A great time was had by all! I would like to say a very special thanks to Jeanine for hosting the show, and Jorge for helping me "learn the ropes" for my first show. Some of my remaining unsold pieces will be put up for auction this week on eBay.
