HALLOWEEEEEN!!

Of course, a special spooky holiday Halloween post. First, my spookiest painting, for Illustration Friday's "vacant" theme.

Also, my 'art group' carved pumpkins this week so I thought I'd show off the handy-work. First is my little owl pumpkin, all lit up at night.

And there is all of us, Jessica on the left with her knobbed-nose Pirate, Lisa with her adorable little Vampire Bat (it actually had little pumpkin wings!), Joni with her Pirate (love the earring!), and me with my owl. Lots of fun!

Love that house, you have a really nice style... it reminds me slightly of Raymond Briggs.

Fabulous :) you did it on computer or in traditional way?

Oh, I'm so fond of pictures with lights like this :D they are always so mysterious, no matter what they show.
