It has been quite a while since I last participated in Paint Party Friday and my last submission was a  "Patch of Blue"; a night landscape of a crescent moon with a straggly tree on a knoll. 
I tried to place a sleeping critter beneath it but along the way, while we were off to Manitoba the painting changed direction and Dirt appeared; must have had something to do with the locality of where we took comfort for the few days we were there.

PineWood Lodge in the WhiteShell Provincial Park was a most satisfying escape and I would recommend it whole heartedly to anyone who wishes to find a secluded place for some tranquility and relaxation. Renting a cottage on the gorgeous serene Dorthy Lake with the occasional family of geese visiting does wonders for the mind and body and I suppose this is how Dirt came to be;  in any case I am very content with the end result.

Meet Dirt the ghost cat, my third instalment of characters for the little children's book I'm writing.

My reason for the lengthy absence from blog land.....we are moving! Will explain at a later date.

Annabelle, thanks for visiting my blog and leaving me your nice comment. Your cat painting is so cool. Looks like a load of fun. Sorry, but I can't read the writing against the black. I'm sure it's just my old eyes.

Wow, I absolutely loved how you conveyed the transparent, ghost quality of the cat!

Sometimes a haunting melody can make quiet an impression ~^..^~
Thanks to Vic Mizzy for creating such unforgettable soundtracks and to Hollis Kim for sharing this fab rendition of the Haunted Organ from The Ghost and Mr. Chicken ….will always luv listening to it, no matter the time of year but especially great in the month of October
