I was going to show you some really scary paintings to celebrate Halloween but they were so awful I couldn't bring myself to publish them. In their place I have chosen some scary pumpkin carvings!!

Okay- for those of you who don't scare easily here is one of the milder paintings from the paintings I have rejected as being too scary!

Katsushika Hokusai, 1830 (huffingtonpost.com.au)
HAPPY HALLOWEEN TO EVERYONE WHO GOES ALONG WITH THIS CELEBRATION.

In my neighbourhood we just use it as an excuse to have a BBQ get together and the kids (of all ages) have a great deal of fun.
