Even though I started working on paintings ahead of time for this challenge, these last 2 day’s posts are of pieces that I finished just in time for the challenge. Today we make a trip back to Disneyland. More specifically the Haunted Mansion.
Horntoads and lizards, fiddle and strum. Please answer the role by beating a drum!
Ghost fiends and furies, old friends and new! Blow in a horn, so we’ll know whether it’s you!
Serpents and spiders, tail of a rat; call in the spirits, wherever they’re at.
Rap on a table; it’s time to respond. Send us a message from somewhere beyond.
Goblins and ghoulies from last Halloween. Awaken the spirits with your tambourine.
Creepies and crawlies, toads in a pond; let there be music, from regions beyond!
Wizards and witches, wherever you dwell, give us a hint, by ringing a bell!
Madame Leota is the dismembered head that speaks to the spirits to have them appear for all to see. One of many classic moments on this ride. This is actually a painting from the old version of the ride. Now the crystal ball containing her head floats around the room as she speaks to you. It’s a great effect but not as exciting for my painting. It would be the ball floating in the darkness. I like the visual of the ball on the table with candles flanking her along with playing cards on the table.
Still not sure what day 7 will bring yet but I think it will involve a Muppet.
This painting is available for sale for $50.00
