Beyond Black and Orange, part 1

Hello! I admit I've set aside the palette knife to get some Christmas projects finished. There are quilts to finish, and I'm co-chair of a Christmas tree for a silent auction to benefit a local charity. Plus, I'm trying to get outdoor projects finished before the weather changes. Whew! I'm revisiting a few paintings with an autumn flair that I did early this year.

So many people are using more and more whites and cool grays in their homes now. So how does that work with kitschy, typical black and orange Halloween decorations? Not so great. How about a subtle nod to the season of spooks?
