Decided to take a day off from painting and sculpting yesterday, grab my hubby, Jim, and go to the park to enjoy this great August weather. While walking along the creek bed I found a treasure....it was a rock shaped perfectly as a heart! That started us on a treasure hunt to see how many we could find. Once you start looking for a certain shape, it's amazing! Also a very special treasure appeared......Jim found a rock shaped like the letter "J"!!!!
Finished artwork for a "Tombstone Trade" hosted by Dani of Ambitions Design. My inspiration for this piece came from a headstone I saw in Pittsburgh with the family name "Boos"......first rhyming word that came to my mind was "shoes" :)......and this was the result. This "crypt" is made with an altered tin and the headstone is sculpted clay (more pictures on Flickr).
Another trade also hosted by Dani was to do ACEO's with a Halloween theme and make 2 for the trade. I got on a roll and made a whole series using the same technique....I have to select 2 of these for the trade (eenie,mennie,minny,moe) and the rest will be up for grabs.

This is my husband, Jim's, latest creation....he calls it the "Hurltz-It 3000 Jr." and has been a very popluar attraction in our neighborhood with kids of all ages!!! We did this video to share the fun with you......don't you just love the helmet and shades! And the shirt...souvenir/gift from the drag race.
