Scary Times on Wall Street


October 18, 2008
I just couldn't take this week's DSFDF challenge seriously. I kept waiting for inspiration and finally decided this was the best I could do. I can't spend too much effort on the subject of people throwing their money away, and all the crooked dealing that goes on with stocks. But I didn't want to break my streak of doing all of Karin's challenges so far. So here 'tis, Haaaappyyyy Haaalllowweeeen...10" x 8" oil on canvas, (sold).

Thanks Irit and Dominique! I love Halloween so this was just a self-indulgence really. What I would have loved to do would have been to make it a big casino with slot machines but I just couldn't muster the detail-orientation that would have required, haha. Thanks for the support. Now let's all cross our fingers and toes for an easier project next time!
