Shine On, Shine On

Harvest Moon, up in the sky -- remember that song?
It was already a song of Yesteryear when I was a kid but I still love it as do others, I guess.


And I have as much of a singing voice as a crow.

But that doesn't bother this little darlin' who is oil pasteled on paper (i.e., yet another two-dimensional blonde!) against another heavy paper AND in my favourite colour... the glitter is fun. And that moon? I just peeled the top and pressed it flat! Is that cheating?


See the star over her other shoulder? A happy accident.
The Halloween Countdown has begun in earnest here at New Haven!

Take care.

Halloween Queen

It is....

right around the corner...

just a few days now ...
My "National Holiday".

Don't you love oil pastels? I find them maddening and a challenge, but so lush. But of course,
Nature trumps them all.
Hope you are enjoying the season wherever you are.
