The Night of the Dancing Ghosts

Halloween is my favorite holiday. I love its quirkiness, the craziness, of course the ORANGE, the bats, spiders and ghosts. This is the first time that I attempted a Halloween themed mixed media painting. I was thinking of glittery ghosts who dance in the night. The glitter is really hard to see in this scan, but anyway, here it is - finished in a couple of days:


It is now available in my Etsy shop.

It's Friday - so I'm linking to the two wonderful bloghops Paint Party Friday and Sneak Peek Friday. Please take a peek - it's fabulous.

Hallo Carola,

danke für Deinen Kommentar auf meinem Blog. :)

Ich mag Halloween auch sehr. Leider ist Halloween in Deutschland ja immer noch nicht allzu bekannt...
