Happy Halloween!!

Halloween is my favorite holiday. I am always at my most inspired during October and the days leading up to All Hallow's Eve. The days get chillier, the nights longer, the winds rustle the dry leaves and everything becomes a little spookier. Over the years I have created many Halloween-inspired drawings. These are all done in pencil and are all approximately 18" x 24". Enjoy!"Pumpkin Moon"

"Trick Or Treat"

"Fortune Teller"

"Three Witches"

"Skeletons"
This one is a "Day of the Dead" tribute to my grandparents. In this drawing they are surrounded by the things they loved in life: my grandmother by her baking and knitting; my grandfather by his garden and his pipe.

"Ol' Scratch"

"Fortune Teller" is the one i love most. This time of year has always been special for me, too, although living out here in California, I miss the seasonal changes that mark the near onset of winter.

Your work is beautiful, Kim, and always inspiring. Thanks for sharing it.
