So close...

Just when you think that all of the sun burn, mosquitoes, humidity, fireworks, heat and all the other unpleasantness of this other season will never end.... you walk into a Big Lots and the non-existent attention span of the retail world reminds you that the most wonderful time of the year is just around the corner....

The Art of Radojavor

I had a professor in college, a wonderfully unique woman who lived the passion of art history. Simply showing our class of about 100 people a slide of a broken, ancient Myceanean statue on a cold winter morning, and relating to us the experience of seeing the piece in person, sent her into a state of ecstasy many in the class I'm sure did not understand.

In other words, the true beauty of user Radojavor's work on Deviant Art has a similar effect on me. Hosting a diverse collection of pieces showing everything from American Revolutionary War battles to contemporary alien invasions, the paintings which I love the most are his scenes of Halloween in the early colonial American colonies.

In even more words, I'd pay big money to have these pieces of art hanging in my home.

"Trick or Treat"

And for a rainy Friday night (at least in my neck of the woods), my YouTube searching found me this tale of "good" versus "evil" whilist trick or treating.
