A Different Perspective

I'm having great fun playing with three point perspective in this piece in progress, a painting on canvas - sort of a "witch's eye view" of the village below....

My hope was to finish it this evening, but general life maintenance got in the way (have to run to the Dr's for a prescription refill) so look for it Wednesday or Thursday on eBay.

Can you believe it's just FOUR days until Halloween??!! I can't wait - two wicked cool parties to attend - an open house at my friend Jen's, and a Harry Potter party at Eric and Dustin's house. Not to worry about the trick-or-treaters though; the local Powers-That-Be have decreed Friday the 30th as "trick or treat night"...

Don't even get me started....

Back very soon with a glimpse of the finished painting. Until then, Happy Haunting!!

Wow! Love the painting, the perspective is wickedly good (ok, I'm being bad with the puns!)...

Ugg, I hate when the powers that be mess with holidays...when I lived in a small town, Halloween was relegated to the day before and the 31st was always "Happy Harvest Time"--as halloween was considered satanic (I kid you not about this!)....

I know you will have fun at your parties though!

Thanks, all! Too funny, Will - when I started sketching the rooftops, I told my husband "this reminds me of the Peter Pan ride at Disneyland", hehe. :)

Love the painting! So original!

I don't understand how people can mess with dates like that. Perhaps Christmas will be on the 26th this year?

Unbelievably cool perspective Carolee, I can't wait to see how it turns out!

Looking forward to seeing the completion... I zoomed the pic up and was in awe at the perspective of the houses etc.

Enjoy the parties :)
