acrylic on hardboard
We pulled out some old Halloween costumes. I loved the way the dress caught the light from the window behind us. The feather mask was one of those things that spoke to me when I was out shopping for something else. I wasn't prepared to make the purchase, but I thought about it for a couple of days and found myself walking right back into the store and sealing the deal. The best thing was, everything was marked half off. I didn't have to feel so guilty about the frivolous purchase. What a difference a few days make! In my own defense I think this mask has been put to good use already with this painting, or at least that's the line I used on my husband. I pushed myself with this painting and I got to use a lot of bright color.
