Mr Pumpkinhead ©2001 arrives with a blue, grey, black and white palette this week of Halloween. With their leaves down, the moon, and soon, Orion, will be easily visible between the branches of the front maples.

The faces and upright postures of these two rabbits were inspired by the illustrations in a story in a 1949 reading book, Come Along, showing two human children dressing as twin rabbits to attend a costume party. In my drawing, Come Along: young suburban rabbits at dusk © 2003, I was interested in placing these ambiguous characters in a luridly lit evening landscape, against a backdrop of overly large McMansion type American subdivision houses. Drawing the shadow of the plant material along the driveway was an especially engaging task- offering challenge to both my bossy analytic brain and my mute brain that responds to emptiness.
