Halloween Painting by Pennsylvania Artist Kolene Spicher Trick


This painting was developed from this piece of art that I blogged about a good while ago.

Trick or Treat 
This is a good example of a painting that I decided to change.  I mean, I really changed this one.  Everything about it is new...almost.  I am not a huge halloween fan, but it is fun for children and some adults, too, that know how to have a good time.  I didn't want this to be too spooky.  I think I pulled that part's just sweet.

Where's Batman? Look**at pumpkin boy. 
I love it when my paintings ask questions.  This is one of those pieces.  I don't know if I should call it, Trick or Treat or Where's Batman?  I guess I will let you decide.

I like the spots of light illuminating this painting.  There's also an eerie night feel to it, which is what I was striving for. 

I sort of like it in this frame because it ties into my silhouettes, which I am thinking of taking along to Wilton, Ct.  It is going to be FUN. 

Also, I decided to change the subject matter of this because, overtime as I looked at it, I kept thinking EGGS.  This painting has to be about the eggs.  I grew up in a neighborhood with about 25 kids.  The boys down the block always threw eggs at us on halloween.  I know you don't approve. They did get in trouble! haha.   Today, I laugh, yesterday I cried (on the inside.) LOL

There's so much detail in this piece, from the dentals to the tree branches.  LOOK at the bricks.  There's a good bit of work in this one! 

Sometimes, you just have to put it on the floor and stand back...NOW you have the feel of it.  Don't forget to look for batman! 

I hope that your October and November and December are so very special.  

My best.

PS, this will go to Wilton, CT. on November 3-5, 2017!
