I'm a fan of your work, but this one is my favorite.  You have a great gift for creating mood and tone, and you use light so effectively.
The scene here is hauntingly dreary.  I can feel the seasonal crisp chill (there's smoke from every chimney) and the gusting wind as it swirls the maple leaves.  The last rays of sunlight are like outstretched fingers, as the day lingers a moment longer before succumbing to night.  Even the trees seem to cling to what remains of their leaves.  The tall, narrow buildings crowd in and lean forward, like menacing, reedy old men.  The grinning jack-o-lanterns are sharing a joke, but they're turned away from the town and watching the graveyard. There's something dreadful in the offing.
There's a welcoming glow from the open door, but I imagine that the occupants will soon bolt that door, draw the curtain, and pull their chairs closer to the hearth.  They'll build the fire higher than usual, and spend the evening bumpering one another with cider, content to let the night pass by outside unattended.
But those trick-or-treaters in the center.  There's just something sinister about them, something disturbing when I look closely at them.  It's like the feeling I get looking at photos that Victorian-era people made of deceased family members.

ooh I always love your Halloween pics! I tell everyone that I can't wait for your next Halloween painting and I'm NEVER disappointed! I love this so much. I like how the graveyard seems to be edging into the city, but it also reminds me of my own Halloween decor, with a false graveyard out front. Very spooky and amazing as always!

I simply love this painting. It just captures the warm cosiness and the slightly eeriness of Halloween. The color scheme is wonderful. It's gives so much life to the painting. I also love that it looks like it could've been done on a canvas. There's so much detail in there but not too much so my imagination sort of gets sparked. It totally transports me to this lovely looking village you've created!

I have been using your painting on my work computer as wallpaper for years. Actual years. Sometimes I switch it out but I always end up back with this picture. I thought after all this time I should tell you how much happiness it has given me. I know it sounds weird but when I am bored at work I kinda fall into it. I often wonder about the various stories that have taken place here and still are. I love the colors and the gentleness of the leaves. The starkness of the headstones and the way the light falls. Your quick work 6 years ago has given me quite a bit of thought and because of this pic I look forward to your yearly Halloween paintings.
Thank you from a humble cartoonist and Halloween fanatic

My eyes don't even know where to start. It seems like there's so many note-worthy details! :wow: And it seems to me that the colors and the village are well-suited for each other. :nod:
