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™‚

Imaginary Friends

Hello! I know it has been quite a while since I’ve been able to write anything, but I had just have to tell you about a book I finished last night! I had never heard of the author or this book, but I am so glad I read it. ๐Ÿ™‚

It is called “Memoirs of an Imaginary Friend.” It is by Matthew Dicks. I found it a month or so ago when I was browsing on Goodreads which is where I find out about a lot of good books by the way.

Max is a little boy with special needs, who I think the author hints at his being autistic, who has an imaginary friend named Budo. Max’s parents are constantly fighting about whether Max is different from other kids or not. He goes to a regular school. His mom wants to take him to someone and have him checked out to see if he needs more help. She is concerned because he doesn’t like strangers, not many people at all really, he plays by himself all the time, gets made fun of at school and bullied (even though they don’t know about that right away.) His dad thinks he’s just a normal little boy and nothing is different about him at all. So this is why they fight all the time.

However, I can’t tell you much more because there are definitely too many things I could mention that would be potential spoilers. If you like adventure, fantasy, and/or drama, try it out! I read it in about a week which is fast for me! I couldn’t put it down. The ending is very tender. Sniff, sniff.

I hope everyone is having a great week. I know I am. I have been working on a novel I began a long time ago again, but not doing quite as much art.

I am done with physical therapy and getting to the gym four days a week now! So things are great.

Have a wonderful day, and give someone you love a big hug!! ๐Ÿ™‚

Clay Tortoise

Hello everyone. I haven’t drawn very many tortoises, but I sort of figured out how to make one! I have a little one sitting on my desk that I tried to copy.

Flying Fairy

Hello everyone. This little fairy is flying by to say hello. She’s ready to go walking when she lands! I plan to re-do her as well since there is some smudging around her. One of these days!

Have a wonderful day, and give someone you love a big hug! ๐Ÿ™‚

Clay Sea Turtle

Hello everyone! I recently purchased some green tinted soft clay! It is not the kind I would put in a kiln, though. I wanted clay I could use over if I need to instead of buying more. It has been a really fun thing to do! This is my first peice. Of course it had to be a SEA TURTLE!! It appears he swam into some flowers!

Have a wonderful day, and give someone you love a big hug! ๐Ÿ™‚

Contemplating Fairy

Hello everyone! Here is another fairy pose I learned from the book. This is a mirror image of how I drew it. It’s another one I want to rework since her feet and hands don’t really look right!

What do you think she is contemplating?

Happy Girl Elf

Hello everyone! Here is an elf I drew a while back. I made her look as happy as possible the other day. I learned the pose from a fairy book.

Have a wonderful day, and give someone a big hug! ๐Ÿ™‚

Shusing Elf

Hello everyone. Here’s a little elf girl I did a long time ago. Trying to get her to look as if she is shusing someone was very hard. I still think it isn’t exactly right, but I didn’t want to fool with it anymore! (Plus, it’s on the same page as a dragon. See part of his tail? I couldn’t crop it out.)

Have a wonderful day, and give someone you love a big hug! ๐Ÿ™‚

Happy Unicorn

Hello everyone. Here’s a happy little unicorn I was able to do sitting at my desk last week. I am planning on re-doing this with some color perhaps in a scene of some sort eventually. I am so thankful for Luke (my physical therapist!)

Have a wonderful day, and give someone you love a big hug! ๐Ÿ™‚
