Gone Batty!...

OK, so I've been hoarding this original bat! For months, he sat unfinished in my studio, anxious for a coat of paint and layers of detail to bring him to life. But, I did not get around to finishing him in time for my fall events, nor Halloween! However, a little nudge from my EHAG friends in the Emporium was just the right amount to inspire me to finish him in time for November's opening. Meet "Wally Wingster" a unique one of a kind collectible bat, complete with hand-formed stylized wings and a series of flapping bats that encircle his spherical base. Take a peek below for a few images of Wally, and decide for yourself if you would like to invite Wally into your home, or perhaps give him as a cherished gift this season to a special friend. Don't forget to hop on over to the EHAG Emporium for just a few more original delights by my fellow Halloween artist friends!

Thank You!

Ahh thanks!.... Oh yes, he will be flying off to the home of a very passionate Halloween art collector, so he'll be in good company :)

Love all your original folk art creations, especially the ones we bought at Halloween & Vine - missed you this past year. Just missed out on the Ebay auction this month too :-( Keep up the fantastic work!!
