Here's a vacant house for ILLUSTRATION FRIDAY for Halloween Day! I can hardly express how much the image of a proverbial "Haunted House" means to me, and I can't explain it. These old Halloween metaphors are comforting to me, maybe because of the childhood memories.
Happy Halloween!- John

This is a little painting I seem to be working on and this is just a camera shot. It's "The Fairies' Halloween Tree". (It's getting late)
Hey! Have a wonderful weekend and a great week!- John

The Wonderful Month Of October

This is my favorite month, it starts with my birthday and ends with Halloween, that spice called Autumn is in the air and I really savor everyday. This just fun stuff that I enjoy reliving.

Here is a remarkable place called The Village Bakery in my town (Tyler, Texas).
Look at the wonderful stuff they bake everyday!

My wife came home at lunchtime and brought this... a cake from The Village Bakery! I miss this cake very much.

I finally decorated the big Elm tree in our front yard for the festive month
Here's how I did it!

Even Blerpy got into the fun! (She reminds me of Totoro)
