Danielle And The Devil, oil on canvas board, 8″x10″. Sold.
It occurred to me the other day that I’ve never really painted a Halloween themed piece. How crazy is that? Especially when you consider that I take Halloween pretty darn seriously – we’re talking full out Halloween decorated house. I’m trying to keep it classy though and collect vintage Halloween pieces- the old die-cut witches and cats and such- but there are rubber bats and maybe a glowing jack-o-lantern head. Yes, I don’t have kids which makes it particularly weird, I know. I’ve even started making certain Halloween themed meals- like ‘Goulish Goulash’ and on occasion Finnegan wears devil horns or something which he seems to like with exception of the the wizard costume which he pouted in (not a Harry Potter fan I suspect).
Over breakfast this morning John announced that he felt that people should be allowed to take their dogs trick-or-treating. We do have an annual Halloween Dog Parade in town, but I don’t think the dogs get to actually trick-or-treat. Needless to say, John and I aren’t the only weirdos around. I think I may have mentioned it before but Stratford is kind of like Stars Hollow (Gilmore Girls) blended with Twin Peaks. It keeps things interesting.
