Hissssssss! Loving the Brusho!

Thanks ,Jo. I find brush is really good to use for intuitive pieces. Brusho first and seeing what creatures pop out. Lots of fun !!

I hate snakes but this is gorgeous and that's hoes they should look if the have to be around.
Well, Sharon, I must say you're good at seeing something in there! Jan is too with her tangles!

All of these are great! Nosferatu seems to be this year's favorite fiend, he's great. Guess he never did get bumped by Gollum! There's a sweet cheeriness to seeing all of them together too, childhood memories of the one time of year I got lots of candy!

Who !!!! What ??? This really is giving me goosebumps!!! Very creepy !!! Well done,Caroline !

ty Jo, I wondered what you were on about when saying owl but i can totally see what you meant lol.  I was painting a lady but owl will do me lol :)

I saw it as a young girl. I think you have really pulled this painting off perfectly!! The whole effect is ghostly and not really being able to pin it down exactly, makes it that much scarier. !!
