I listing this painting on Etsy.  Pleas read the attached poem that tells a little more of the story, LOLWell sometimes we wake up with a bit of a headache, maybe we just don't feel that well or maybe it is simply a hang over, but it gets to us. This gourd woke up with a headache and a bad attitude. His sissy kitty with MOM tattooed on his rear is just watching the carnage as Mr. Gourd decides his is gonna slit the ol' moon an eye gash and maybe take out some of that light. But the moon is tougher than he he thought. He is layers and layers of pure light. He just needs to grab another beer and get over it. LOL

In the still of the night,a shrill scream was heard.    
View Listing
It wasn't a man, a baby or a bird.

They looked to the ground
they looked to the air
low and behold it just wasn't fair

The moon had a gash
the size of a planet
Who would do this horrible deed, Dammit

Out of the dark came a growling gourd
He was swaying and swearing
His teeth ugly and tearing

This was such a tragedy
The townsfolk were mad                                            
the children were sad

They shook their clubs,
they shook their heads
They killed that gourd, they killed him dead,

This painting is mixed media on gallery stretched canvas.

Size: 11x14 inches....staple free sides are painted black so no frame is needed.

Signed and dated as always

Please email me if you have any questions.........

I just read the story of the Melancholy Death of Oyster Boy by Tim Burton and oh my how sad.   I was expecting a child's story but this was a little off the beaten path.   It has all the classic signs of a a children's story and then...............Well you will have to read for yourself.  Truly interesting take on the lame, lost and blind.

Tim Burton's Animated Film

I was browsing the net early this morn and came across this short animated film by Burton and thought it was sooooo cute.  I love Vincent, he is so dramatic and fun.  
The ghoulish tone and black and white fot he film make it haunting, keeping me on the edge of my seat. Loved it....

My Newest Halloween Goodie

This fellow is made of Creative Paper Clay with wire, scraps of paper and a friendly disposition for the Witches.  He was raised by a silly witch named Esmerelda who taught him to fly and always be happy or at least know a spell to fix it.  He loves his orange and black broom and couldn't imagine life without all the Halloween hype that goes on in the Coven on October 31st.
He measures about 7 inches high

He has found a new home........SOLD
