Tis the Season....

Ha! October is finally here!

This is the time of year that I wait all year for. I love the weather, I love the colors as trees begin to change, and most of all:

I love Halloween.

In honor of the season, I'm running a blog-a-thon here at Second Star, one that I hope you will join in on.

Allow me to draw your attention to the snazzy Peter Cushing badge in the right sidebar. I've joined in on the Halloween Countdown this year; just click on it, and it will take you to the Halloween Countdown blog, where you'll find a list of many other Cryptkeepers, and I hope you'll spend some time checking out their blogs as well.

I had originally planned "The 31 Days of Halloween", but I won't be able to keep to that intense of a schedule this year...for one thing, my computer died last week, and my only online access is through my mother's computer, and my online time is rather limited now. Plus, Mom's computer moves in three speeds: slow, really slow, and "Merciful Zeus, it's going backwards", and it's rather frustrating.

So I now plan on posting every other day during the month of October, beginning tomorrow. I will post one piece of Halloween/spooky artwork for your perusal and hopeful enjoyment. Some of it will be pencil sketches, some will be more finished paintings, some will be photos of things I see around town that help keep the anticipation of All Hallow's Eve going strong. At least one will be whatever pumpkin creation the boys and I come up with for the front porch this year. I might even post a tale or two...

I hope you'll join me; I'm sure that not everyone will like every piece that I post, but hopefully everyone will like at least some of them.

Also, to quote Tim Burton's Batman: "I want you to tell your friends about me." If you like what you see here, pass it on to someone else you think might enjoy both my artistic endeavors, and the Halloween Countdown in general.

See you tomorrow...
