All Hallows Eve... just around the corner.

I love Halloween... well I guess I more love the imagery associated with Halloween rather than the practice of detting dressed up and knocking on people's door for sweets!

We used to get lots of kids down our road, one year we got over 50! But last year the road was quiet... I don't remember anyone knocking. Sign of the times I guess.

So to get into the spooky spirit, I've been looking for some Halloween Inspration for my art... now there are tons of great spooky images of Jack-0-Laterns and witches etc on t'net but I prefer something a little more obscure... and I found this:-
(I found this image here)

Now I *love* masks of all sorts... and have seen this Vendetta mask before and loved it, but in this image the background really adds to the picture of someone wearing the mask...what is the tree in the background? Where does the teal colour come from? I find it interesting... so hope to use it as inspiration in the new few days leading up to All Hallows Eve!

Have some spooky fun too!

111 222 333 444 555 666 777 888 999...
The tenth day of the tenth month in the tenth year of 2000th century!
So today's date was 101010 and I went to see Jean Michel Jarre at the O2! I am a big JMJ fan (have been for many years...) and it was great to see him live in London again!

Looking forward!

I'm looking forward to October! We have a few days away planned, some extended family time scheduled and a concert to look forward to this month.

Summer is well and truly over and there didn't seem to be any evidence of the promised Indian Summer... it just got cold! I usually try to hold off until October before the heating comes on but I had to give in a few days earlier this year!

Time, as always, is against me, but I am going to try and be a better blogger. I have been contributing to a shared blog for a number of years and that has now come to an end, so I can focus more on my personal blog!

Happy 1st day of October all!
