This IS My Happy Face, 4 x 4, acrylic, Elizabeth W. Seaver
Title borrowed from my student's t-shirt yesterday--thanks, J!
We have experienced quite the opposite of the weather in my painting the last few days. Skies have been beautifully sunny, and October breezes blew--kinda chilly for those of us still circulating summer-warmed blood.
Alas, it is time for seasons to change, and yesterday we got the jump on Halloween with a downtown trick or treat event. Ninjas, ghosts, princesses, pirates and their patient parents wandered among store fronts to collect all kinds of things, including oos and ahs from local business owners. We gave the traditional candy, but we saw books and pencils in pumpkin buckets as well.
Let me leave you with one thought: perhaps purple plastic princess shoes are not the best footwear for traipsing city streets.
