I spent a lot of time deciding what I was going to paint for Halloween this year. I had several concepts rolling around in my head: spiders, ghosts, the legend of Sleepy Hollow. But I didn't know what to do with my vague snippets of inspiration. With October just around the corner, I decided to go with one of my biggest fears - SPIDERS! - and started a new piece.
Of course it was only after I put pastel to paper that the Pumpkin Head concept finally gelled, but I knew that it was to be my Hallowe'en painting, so I nixed the other one and got busy on this one.
