I was inspired by Jack and Redsaucers fantastic witches, and had to make one of my own.
I am terribly sorry for making something so terrifying....:rolleyes::p
I hope everyone has fun this fall. The leaves are falling here now, and it seems to be cooling off.
I am looking forward to my favorite time of year.:D

What a great Halloween picture Alexandra!

It's so nice not to see all the horrifying gore that people love to wallow in these days. I really wonder what the little children think when they see it.

Hi Sandy.....It's time again I see! Don't know if I'll have time to post one....I will try.
I like the Halloween witch and the crow with his own little hat, but mostly I enjoy your holiday spirit you have Sandy...hope you never lose it.
Take care friend,
Steve

Your work has come a long way since the last time I peeked in on you. You're doing awesome. I love your Halloween pic here.

Dear Sandra, You're right to remind us of a theme that usually inspired so many scary or funny illustrations in here as the one You posted. Obviously any subject and character becomes amusing and lovely in Your hands and far from scary for sure, notwithstanding the unhealthy-looking complexion of the old witch.

Hi Robyn, you know this time of year holds a lot of sweet memories for me and those of us our ages.
At simpler time, wasn't it? I'm so pleased you enjoyed it.:)

Hi Steve, thank you dear man. It is very hard I admit, especially with all that is going on. I have written one
of our dear mates here twice with a panicked letter about the Ebola plague having come back after all these years.
Finally after trying to analyze it all, I came to this reasoning or rationalization as some may call it-
there is a fine line between life and death, happiness and sadness.
We have but one day only to live in reality. Not tomorrow, and yesterday is gone.
Why not carry on, spread a little happiness. I have my belief system, I've said my prayers, and now it is time to toughen up.
I don't watch most of the news as it is one negative panicky thing after another.
Few intelligent questions, or answers for that matter, fear and chaos.
Being more of an assertive person than passive, I choose to try to boost my and my families immune
systems, and if this thing spreads throughout the planet, hopefully we will make it.
Coming up...a war with Ebola. I think I need the talents of you and Cesare on this one.
You take care too, Steve.xx


Hi Magen, it is great to see you around the forum again, and that you are okay!
Thank you for your encouragement, I appreciate that, BUT, I am afraid I am really lazy with my art, and don't deserve it:p.
There was a time in school (a lonnnngggg time ago now) where I actually won blue ribbons,
and had paintings displayed in a nearby shopping mall, but I put it all on the backburner
so to speak, and other things took precedence. I will work hard on a project, and other times,
take the easy route. Never quite making it to the finish line.:rolleyes::p:o
Again, being one of those women who make all their food, there is where my time goes.
I am a little like Bruce on the movie RED2, if you don't cook it, you don't eat it, haha.
Anyway, I am happy that the rage teams allows all levels of art to be submitted
and, that they have a forum for us all to keep in touch. Take care dear lady.:)

Hi Dear Friend, it is broccoli, green pea, and poison ivy facial cream. You may purchase it on the internet only.
Just don't use it on your face during a full moon. I won't go into a lot of detail, I will just say you don't have enough razors to handle it.;)
It was fun to make this doodle, and I wanted to bring a little smile to everyone.
Thanks Cesare, you are a huge part of the fun of this forum. I always look forward to your comments and artwork.:)

Hi Jean, haha, I am afraid I need a little WD40 on this mind. The gears are rusty.:p:o
Thank you, and I am happy you enjoyed it!:)

Heheheh heehhhhee hakkkaa heee heee cah cuh (witches laugh and coughing there)
Thanks D Akey, great to see you! I promise, she is a nice witch, most of the time...
I am sure the raven keeps her in line.:rolleyes::p;)

You are totally deserving of my compliments young lady!

The stylization of this isn't lazy, it's ideal and it fits exactly what you were attempting and I adore it. Would be a fantastic Halloween card. I think you underestimate your talents and abilities. You're really great at your style of art and I admire it.

Speaking cards, I saw the best one yesterday Outside it said "I'm pregnant" .... inside it said... Not really, but "boo" is so cliche these days. :cool:

Hahaha. That indeed could be pretty spooky under certain circumstances.

Hi Mags, thanks dear xxxxx! And your card....this is right up there with Freddy K! haha!:eek:;)

Thanks Gary, sure appreciate it dear friend. I am off to do some more painting today.
I am almost done with repairs. I don't think I am going to beat old man winter though.
It looks as though it will take me one more season to finish.

... and You're certainly among the great friends I'm particularly glad to please and make chuckle and think of possible reactions with my works and comments, dear Sandra, apart from the delight to see Your artpieces and read Your comments as well, which are always meaningful and lovely. Thank You!:)

Hi Neal, it is so good to hear from you. Thanks so much.
I hope you will feel like submitting another one of your beautiful oil landscapes soon,
or maybe a trick or treating group in a neighborhood for us.

Thanks, Cesare! I really appreciate it dear friend.:)
