Happy Halloween! For the occasion, I'm sharing an old painting of mine from middle school art class. It's tempera paint; I'm sure many of you can relate to the large red, yellow, blue, white, and black containers of paint that are a mainstay in grade school. I've always been a believer that each of us carries an ingrained artistic style that can manifest in anything from a school art project to blog photography. Looking back on this painting from a Halloween past makes me smile, because I recognize my penchant for vibrant colors and shadow blocking even at a younger age.
I hope everyone has a safe and enjoyable Halloween day. In light of current events, I'd like to mention that my thoughts and best wishes go out to friends, family, everyday people, and heroes working through the hurricane's aftermath. Thanks for reading! Do you have Halloween plans? Will you be amongst those celebrating a delayed Halloween this year? Have you ever looked back on artwork from your childhood and recognized stylistic tendencies?
