Ok, so I painted a couple of Halloween themed paintings. I just can't seem to let go of summer though!

The first one uses vintage sheet music from an 1800's school music book. The song is called October's Party! I used the title on her hat.

The second one is kind of creepy. This girl was on her way to a Halloween Ball and she took a shortcut through the woods. Well, we all know that is never a good idea. The crows were ordered to capture her by tying her up with a rope. When they are finished they will fly her to the vampire in the cave who is waiting for her luscious neck!

In the third painting, this girl is trying to help her baby owl friend find his mother in the deep woods. I think the baby owl is just as frightened as the girl.

All these paintings are available on Ebay. Have a great week!

I love these paintings!!! I'm in such a Fall/Halloween mood, but I gotta get caught up on orders before I can dive into them. Don't like that at all. Just wanna paint what I wanna paint!
These are so great!

I did a couple of Halloween paintings too last month and still haven't posted them to my blog. I love the dress on the October's Party girl! The little owl baby is so cute also and I love the background. Very cool paintings!

Very scary! :) I am a big chicken at Halloween! Thank you so much for the kind words on my blog! One of the things I'm going to treat myself to is a piece of your art - after I pass my board exam, that is!
