Today is the day of the Halloween Blog Challenge. An invitation went out within our blogger group (that means you!) to paint or create something Halloweeny. Post it on your blog and comment here, with a link to your blog, so we’ll know where to go look at everyon’s art.
Ryan, from asmalltowndad blog, is away on his annual Halloween camp-out. He did an amazing painting and you can go see it here. You’ll LOVE it!! I did, and I have flies buzzing around my head in it.
I have had a lot of fun this week, doing all these little paintings. I like the fun and playful side of Halloween. When I lived in Huntington Beach, CA, there was always a party. I have great memories of those parties. I lived in a neighborhood close to the beach, where most of my neighbors were in their 20′s. We made Halloween a fun holiday.
Now, I understand that the same (average income) young couples could probably not afford to live where we lived and the houses we lived in have probably been replaced by taller, fancier homes. I was lucky to have that time in my life. It was a terrific place to spend my 20′s. We also had St. Patrick’s day parties, Cinco De Mayo, 4th of July….. you get the idea. Yeah, we had fun!
