A-Haunting I Will Go

~ Somewhere into the dark night Dirt has vanished; I'm without doubt upon his return he will have some sort of gifting curiosity for me : )

So I decided to change a few things up a bit with this painting, for starters, I changed the moon again.
I think the fellow is quite more suited to this scenery; quite, still and engulfed in a starlit night.

As many of you have the pleasure of a friendly critter for your constant companion, when the time comes for their parting of this world, we humans try very hard to hold onto whatever comforts us and reminds us of our dear departed who without boundaries, loved us dearly and was our dear best friend .

It's been sometime now since we lost our dear fat house cat Elliott ( named after Prime Minister Elliott Trudeau) and to keep him near to us always my daughter M drew digitally his image as an angel.



Elly 2001 ~ 2008 All he ever wanted was Love and Affection but he gave his always.






Poor thing never cringed at M's antics…she loved to dress him up and treat him as her very own live furry baby.



And when she took this pic we laughed for days….grandma wolf?…. : ) a little tag from a flickr fan.

























Of course I couldn't resist the chance of incorporating him into some of my work and so I invited him into "A-Haunting we Will Go " a landscape created in photoshop with a photograph I had taken of the haunted village, hand drawn illustrations of Ellie Cat Angels by M and an ceramic haunted tree i made when I was expecting my son. I adore this Halloween landscape because it has substance and soul and many heart felt memories.



"A~ Haunting We Will Go "




And because of this image I decided this time to illustrate Elliott in this Magical Halloween Evening, inspired totally by my daughter's drawings of Elliott.

So here you have Elliott the ghost kitty cat having a friendly chat with Charlotte.
I still have a few things to tweak and during the painting I lost some of the delicate webs, but better equipped for later paintings for I'm quite sure there will be many Charlotte's webs, kitty cats, dogs, owls ,some crows ……too many critters to list : )











I would like to make prints of this painting when I done but not sure how to go about it.
As you can see there is a  glare , not the best photograph.I will try to take a better pic once it's completed.


I wasn't going to participate in PPF because I wanted to devote the time to my daughter who is turning 20 today and since she likes the show "Walking Dead" and zombie movies my husband thought she would like to go see the Annual Ottawa Zombie walk ( never seen it since it's inception) and also her dad leaves tomorrow for work. So needless to say I wouldn't have the opportunity to visit the folks on Paint Party Friday till Sunday evening….sorry : ( …..For the rest of you try to pay them a visit.

Hope you enjoy the post ; )

Oh , almost forgot M ….Happy 20th ~^..^~ m^._.^m

Good blog post, nice efforts. It couldn't appear to have been penned any better. Reading this article piece of writing reminds me about my old boss! He usually kept babbling about this. I will email this post to him. Pretty confident he will probably have a high-quality read. Appreciate your posting!
