My King of Hearts

Happy Halloween!

The T-man is Ready with a capital R!  He had a trial run with his costume at preschool on Friday, but he is very anxious for some serious trick or treating tonight!

Here is what the front and the back of the costume look like - you may remember the idea from last week's sketch.  Since I am totally intimidated by the thought of sewing (I am always so in awe of all the fabulous fiber artists I see), I had to rely on a pillow case, iron-on adhesive, and good 'ol paint!

I'm sorry to report that I have no sketch to share this week.  Between Halloween and 30 in 30 for 30 preparations, my sketchbook is feeling a little bit neglected... But never fear, my friends always have lots of fun sketches to share over at Sophia's Blue Chair Diary! (I'll definitely have lots of sketches to share next Sunday because the painting starts tomorrow - eek!)

I'm off to Sophia's, then to carve a pumpkin...
Have a safe and fun Halloween!

P.S. This has been a week filled with computer learning (not my forte)... I finally figured out how to set up a facebook page for my art.  If you're on facebook, be sure to stop by!
