I am the clown with the tear-away face...

Hello Lovelies!

So much to share with all of you. Let's start with old business. First, all of my Alice in Wonderland paintings are now complete and dropped off at the gallery! Hooray. Here's the 4 that go with the Queen of Hearts piece from the last post. Oh, I should take this opportunity to tell you all that if you're ever really interested in a gallery piece I post on here, please send me an email and I will gladly give you purchase details.


Speaking of paintings, I just listed 4 original 3 x 3 inch clown paintings in the shop. These little gems would make perfect stocking stuffers for that odd friend or perhaps in a baby's nursery if you're a progressive parent. (The colors are right at least...)


I have also finally listed the buttons in the shop. I have decided to offer these buttons as limited edition sets and not have them reprinted when they run out so I can make new ones and keep it fresh. Get them while you can! They're quite charming...


And exciting news! I am getting ready to list the first male in the Cigar, Creeper & Dark Circus and Sideshow series my Pets! The photo is taken and almost ready... he's going to be a doozy. I'll show it off next time...

I have discovered a wonderful new (to me) blog that I wanted to pass along. Wurzeltod is a quirky, dark, humorous and at times downright disturbing source for wonderful imagery of the bizarre. I don't even know where she finds this stuff, but find it she does, in profusion. Below are just two (creepy) examples of the work she digs up. The piece on the left is by Tari Nakagawa and the piece on the right is untitled by James Jean. Haunting, I love them both!


And let's wrap up with a bit of news, shall we? So did you read about the pilot in Concord, CA who was stalking his ex-girlfriend with a plane?! What the?! Apparently, he was flying low over her subdivision and neighbors called in to complain about it. He was promptly arrested. Apparently this low-flying business had been going on for a year. Really? I just don't know people...

Until next time: unpleasant dreams...

The whole series on the wooden shoe forms are great! I think my fave is the white rabbit.

And that mannequin/doll/ puppet.. not sure what it is, but i know its creeping me out. It reminds me of Hans Bellmer's work (I shivered, when I said that)

Yeah, that mannequin is really creepy. It looks too real to be laughed off actually. :)

And thank you! I like how the White Rabbit came out too. :)
