Blog Notes October 1, 2019
Can you feel that? The chill of goosebumps, the hair raising on the back of your neck? Did you hear that? A bump in the night, a screech in the wind? Did you see that, something flew across the moon? Yep, it's that time again! Halloween is coming! October 31st marks the fun celebration also known as All Hallow's Eve!
Sometimes misunderstood, Halloween is thought to have originated with the old Celtic celebration of Samhain, where the folk would wear costumes to frighten off ghosts. Various cultures celebrate this holiday and have added their own touches to it.
I love to paint for Halloween! The colors just thrill me, with those vibrant purples and smoky oranges, the glowing yellows and somber blacks.
This issue is the first of three this month celebrating Halloween. We've got a wonderful and fun Halloween project each issue, coming from three awesome designers. Up first we have Viki Sherman with 'I'd Turn Back if I were You!"
