Be Still My Halloween Heart

The weekend was a blur of orange and black, uplifted spirits, friendly faces and whole barrel of fun. I so look forward to this weekend each year, but find myself a bit let down afterwards. I wish all of my shows were of this caliber and amusement. I was able to go around quickly to some of the other artists' tables and take some photos of their talented offerings. Most gone like a witch flying past the harvest moon on Halloween eve by the end of the first hour of the show. So feast my friends, and savor the delicious works of some of the best folk artists in the country gathered once a year at Halloween and Vine, Petaluma, CA. Be inspired, be joyful, and see you next time.

Labors of Love

Happy Labor Day!  Another busy weekend here at Sharon Bloom Designs. Fall is a my most productive and busy season. I do spend the summer months producing a lot of pieces, but  the shows begin for me in September. I have been having fun mixing new colors, like the green and the pinky orange for this group of owl dishes. For some unknown reason, at least to my conscious mind (!), I have been creating owl images on many surfaces. I like the animal and the symbol along with the fun I can have with patterns and colors. So watch out for more owl stuff and swoop one up!
