Miss Moon Was A Dog Governess.  Lesson Ten:  Sometimes Tricks Are Better Than Treats, oil on canvas, 10″x12″.  Sold.

And speaking of Halloween….Shocktoberfest begins tomorrow.  I think this has to be the forth or fifth year of it- possibly six?  For those who are new to this blog and wondering what the heck Shocktoberfest is- well, it’s a time honored and ridiculously sad tradition that my husband has thrust upon me.   Every evening that I don’t have something better to do during the month of October, I am subjected to watching a scary movie of his choosing.  In his defense, he does censor his cinematic offerings for me and knows that my tolerance level barely goes beyond Walt Disney’s Sleepy Hollow.   Shocktoberfest has also grown in recent years to include decorating the house in tasteful vintage Halloween ornaments (of my choosing), eating Halloween themed meals like ‘Ghoolish Goulash’ and consuming a bottle of red wine each night to drown out the nightmarish imagery so that I can sleep soundly.

Happy Shocktoberfest everyone!

    I just love your sense of humor and your cute, cute paintings! Each one inspires me and truly make me smile. Now, this fun idea of shocktoberfest! How fun! However, like you, I can’t handle anything too scary! Thank you for sharing Jane!

  2. Sounds like Shoktoberfest is a fun filled month for you and John. Of course, that nightly bottle of red wine helps mellow you out enough to not have to shiver in your timbers with 31 days of horror flicks.
    May I recommend a couple of movies?
    The Other (based on Thomas Tryon’s novel) and of course, Steven Spielberg’s early, made for TV movie, Something Evil. Both are old and different.
    Enjoy your deliciously haunting Old Hallows Eve…ings……

  3. Oh what a delightful painting! Miss Moons dogs in fancy dress, what a thought…and a mermaid and ladybug toboot…and with such straight serious faces! You have the most incredible sense of humour… you have made my day!

    A mermaid dog and masked parakeet, too fun. What a sweet painting. Shocktoberfest sounds like fun, but I love scary movies and Halloween.

  5. Love your paintings. I rarely comment, but this one tickled me. And I thoroughly believe in costumes for dogs!
