Blustery Fall Day
A walk among the fall leaves is depicted in this colorful picture! The artist first scrolled the image, then carved and shaped various components before applying acrylic paint to showcase fall. A simple frame with a black mat focuses the viewer on the image presented.
The artist is Elaine Negrotto.
Constructed of pine, this segmented Mr. Scarecrow was scrolled, shaped, and painted with water colors, mounted to a backer board, and then finished with polyurethane.
The artist is Arlene Schlueter.
Comments from the Voters: A lot of artistry went into this piece. Very nice, excellent job. Well done!
It's the bewitching time of year and these gnome witches collection are waiting to brew up something spooky and put a spell on you!
The gnome bodies are maple with painted hats. Betilda's hat was crackled with purple and Greta's was painted then given a final glitter cast.
Artists are Shelly & Jim Kent.
Comments from the Voters: Love these ladies!
Walking Candy Dish
Would you take candy from the mouth of this creature?
The artist turned this fun candy dish from a single cherry log. The bowl was turned with a natural edge that forms a mouth (does it bite?) and has three hips (feet) carved in to accept the creepy black legs. It is finished with Tung oil. The legs are spindle turned, cut on an angle and glued back together to make the creepy legs that are painted black. (Loving the Titebond Quick and Thick!)
When prepping the wood, the artist found a couple of bullets in the log. The legs still have the bullet holes and one still has fragments of the bullet!
This dish just won't die while delivering tempting treats.....
The artist is Robert Love.
Note: This turning is based on the legged creations of Rebecca DeGroot.
