Happy Splashy Halloween!
Happy Halloween! This spash and splatter was done in fall colors in a loose, fun, "abandon it all kind" of way --- it started out merely as a splash with colors I haven't used much - then merged into colors of fall, and finally, a wild version of pumpkins ...
We accompanied the grands last night - along with my son and his fiance, their pup, Bently, their friends, and my son's future in-laws - on a house-by-house Trick or Treating! I have to admit that since moving to our woodland home, we RARELY see trick or treaters, and our neighborhood, with acres between houses, dark driveways, and roaming wildlife, doesn't encourage wee ones to venture.
About eight miles from us though, in a young, more suburban neighborhood, the community of homeowners went all out with decorations, hay rides for the children, costumes, treats, and FUN! I took some photos in the dark and posted those that could be recognized -- including Nick and Emily and Bently in costume just before the sun set. It was cool - in the 40s ... and yet all the walking, crowds, the kids dashing from decorated house to decorated house -- kept us warm enough! It was great fun!!
C hosts his jam today, and I plan to paint. The weather has finally cooled enough to believe we're in the middle of fall - and while I prefer warm temps to cold -- five months of temps in the 80s and 90s can be mighty fatiguing! LOL
Hope your Halloween is Spookily Successful!
