Spooky Moonlight

Moonlight in the Fall

Hello everyone. Halloween is almost here!

Here is an acrylic painting I did a couple of weeks ago. I didn’t even have the holiday in mind when I painted it. I was mostly thinking of Fall and wanted to post it then, but never got around to it.

What I had in mind was what the road I drive every day looks like when it is brightly lit at night. The full moons here are always beautiful, but on the butte which is a road winding around an inactive volcano, it can be especially beautiful. There is a section where some trees are overhanging the road from both sides which is kind of scary if it is really windy or rainy. I am always afraid I’ll drive under them right when a tree branch decides to fall off! But it has been 14 years that we’ve been driving it now. So far, so good! (Plus, if I am on it at night, George is usually driving!) ๐Ÿ˜‰ And of course I made the sides of the road look like there was something mysterious billowing up to get whoever is on the road!

I haven’t been drawing or painting much lately, but I plan to work on some things this weekend. Our kids are going to a friend’s house on Halloween, and our son gets to drive them, so George and I can stay home! Out where we live we have never had kids come to trick-or-treat unless a neighbor drops by with their younger kids before they head to town to go out. And for many years, we had no young children here except ours! So it is usually quiet. This year could be a little different, but we’ll see.

I like watching the movie “Halloween” (only the first one which is the best in my opinion) and maybe “Psycho.” I love the music in both these movies which is what gets to me the most! I actually find them both pretty comical so it’s like suspense and comedy all in one to me. But this year since it will just be the two of us, and we don’t have to drive the kids anywhere, maybe we’ll spend the evening talking without any interruptions! One can only hope.

Keep your little ones safe this Halloween, and watch out for all the things that go bump in the night! (Especially Michael…..and Norman….)

Have a great day, and give someone you love a big hug. ๐Ÿ™‚

When I began this blog I was simply going to share my writing. However, after being part of the blogging world for quite some time now, I decided to begin sharing my artwork. Patsy's Creative Corner will always have my artwork and some writing, but I also created a blog called "My Crazy Life!" in order to simply write my short autobiography and hopefully get some feedback on it as I go. However, it is a very slow project right now. You can find it here: https://spreadingmy2wings.wordpress.com Thanks for visiting! :)

  1. That’s really beautiful. It somehow makes me thing of that Scream painting by Edvard Munch. It’s not similar physically, yet somewhat similar in spirit, if I’m making sense lol. Cheers.

    Reminds me of the work of Edvard Munch Patsy. his is a fantastic painting Patsy because it is full of mystery. You have cleverly used complimentary colours beside each other, i.e. the red of the trees and the green at the side of the road. I would love to see you do more like this, painting from memory works so well! Happy Halloween, I’ll be watching the Rocky Horror show!
