            What’s not to like about Halloween? First of all it involves lots and lots of chocolate. It’s really hard to beat a holiday that involves accumulating reams of candy along with an excuse to look and behave a little crazy. Forget the social pressures that exist most of the time for us to dress and behave in a reasonably respectable manner. This is the one time of year that it’s perfectly socially acceptable to dress up as an unattractive, frightening creature and to try to scare the living daylights out of friends, neighbors, and even small children. And did I mention there’s chocolate? You’ve got to love Halloween!
            Today’s painting is of pears on red Canson paper. I think it gives them a very festive, autumn feel.
