Woodland Halloween

"Woodland Halloween"
mixed media acrylic painting

Wow, Ghoultide Gathering is 
just under 2 weeks away!

I've had a lovely Halloween filled summer 
getting ready for this event; 
but it has been brought to my attention 
that not all are as fond of Halloween as I am?! 
So here is a gentle woodland Halloween painting 
that might get a few of you to change 
your mind about my favorite holiday;)

Ghoultide Mascots

Signage and Mascots for Ghoultide Gathering.
These figures are based on 
one of my favorite paintings 
("Beware of Young Girls")from last year's show.

I think of these as 3-D paintings; 
same texture and style.
23" tall.

LOVE this version of the song 
on youtube by Tavi Gevinson 
or listen to the original version
(even better) 
written about Woody Allen and Mia Farrow
by Dory Previn
BTW, as of 2013 
Dory was still performing this song;
Woody is such a DOG!!!
(and what about Mia?!)
