"But I Have Nothing to Wear!"
"Halloween is confusing. All my life my parents said, "Never take candy from strangers." Then they dressed me up and said, "Go beg for it." I didn't know what to do! I'd knock on people's door and go, "Trick or treat." "No thank you."
-- Rita Rudner
Boo! I hope this finds you happy, well and in the process of stuffing your face full of candy. . . .
In the spirit of Halloween, I have a little vampire girl to share with you. It was actually Kendra's idea to give her vampire teeth, which in the end, worked perfectly with my idea to create a young, dark creature struggling with the problem of having nothing to wear for the occasion. Here's what we came up with:
Neck extending down the deeply cradled canvas
Fiber paste helped to create texture for the limited palette
And scribbly-swirls (I'm certain that's a word) define the sides
And here she is! Our little one concerned about her costume.
See you at Party!
