Woodstock the Ghost and ...

"Art is a collaboration between God and the artist,
and the less the artist does the better."
~ Andre Gide,  French critic, essayist, & novelist (1869 - 1951)

Like the way this 'peace' came together and LOVE the above quote.  Although, I know planning is important, this 'peace' just materialized from one of nature's Chinese bottle gourds and my God given gift to express myself with a little bit of paint and a brush.  One of my life's blessings (for which I am very grateful) sprinkled into the craziness!  

I call him Woodstock!

he has some slightly invisible friends that always accompany him ...

gotta have a spider to eat the bugs!

need a witch on a broom and a harvest moon!

... and a scary old tree and bats and pumpkins!

and PEACE, we gotta have PEACE!
just in time for Paint Party Friday too!  See ya there!

sometimes it works, sometimes ...

sometimes it works, sometimes ... it doesn't!
 These guys are pretty big ... like 25" to 28".  Got a good deal on them after Halloween last year.  Unfortunately not the best quality in craftsmanship and I believe they were made in China.
 I repainted their faces and painted some scrap pine to look like Candy Corns to embellish them.
 Not sure if the necklace works ... maybe one Candy Corn per ghost would work better.  Necklaces will be strung on wire so a squirrel can't chew through the strand of wooden beads.  Would probably only last one season if unprotected from the constant fall elements.  Could hang on door or on a wall protected by an overhang. 

Won't ship them ... so if friends or family are interested in giving a lonely ghost a home, one could be yours for $25.  Delivery or pick up arrangements negotiable!  Only 5 left!  Thx for looking!
