Halloween Show

As I'm wishing all my Ehag friends well this weekend at the Ghoultide Gathering, I'm also happy to show a few pieces of my Halloween artwork in my town's gallery, State of the Art (so named, I imagine, because it's on State Street). The show wasn't entirely ready yet when I stopped in today but two of paintings were in the window and looking quite nice. I bought a cool tile skeleton from Maggie Mowery and already have him hanging in my kitchen. I really want one of those skull paintings! This gallery does a wonderful job of showing local artists and artisans.
I also really want that carved Easter Island Moai for my garden!





Saw this pretty rose on my way out to the car. I love how it looks next to the peeling paint.



I've also been dying to check out this little cemetery around the corner. Most of the graves were unreadable. The one I could read was from the early 1800's. We have a lot of these old forgotten cemeteries around here.



I like how the picket fence has made cross-like shadows on the tombstones.
Hauntingly beautiful.




One last thing... a little pumpkin painting on canvas.

Love the gravestones, actually all of the pictures are great. Have fun at the show :)

Good Luck, your paintings go together perfectly the way you did them. Have you ever done gravestone rubbings? We did that when I was in the 6th grade in Sturbridge MA, as weird as I thought it was way back then, I wish I still had them.
