CASPER THE PUNKINHEAD SPOOK by Pat Salazar
I have had several painting assignments for Canvas by Canvas to complete before we leave on a trip as we have several important shows coming up in the near future. One of the exciting things that we will be participating in is Holiday Magic. Every year since 1982, more than 10,000 North Texans flock to Holiday Magic, a holiday gift market with the unique gifts from more than 100 exclusive vendors and attend the highly anticipated Ladies Style Show and Luncheon. This year Holiday Magic also includes a Tween Style Show and Children’s Party. It is sponsored by the Junior League of Arlington. Check out their web site at http://jlarlington.org/holidayMagic.asp If you happen to be in the area, be sure to join us for the fun and great shopping! We will be showing many of our paintings for sale there, among which will be our new whimsical minis which consist of lures and flies for the ladies and gentlemen in your family who enjoy the wonderful sport of fishing. To be perfectly honest, I was NOT looking forward to painting these funny little creatures, but once I got into it, I became very excited and they actually started to take on a personality all their own! I have named this one "Casper" as the lure is called a Punkinhead Spook. I think that Casper has a personality all his own, in fact I find him to be very "alluring" ;-) Casper makes great bait for shad if that is your fish of choice.These little jewels are each 6x6 on gallery wrapped canvas and are the perfect original gift for that outdoor person in your life. Check out our web site at http://www.canvasbycanvas.com/ for more details. I had such fun painting him and I hope that you enjoy seeing our work and hopefully buying one or two. Can't wait to paint more of them.
