We had such a fun and unusual paint-out today! Something different...Halloween is coming soon. We met in an Altadena neighborhood noted for its Halloween decorations where one house was the main attraction. It was a bit of a puzzle for me, trying to chose what to paint. I finally settled on a spot in the shade where I could see some interesting backlit zombies hanging from the beautiful sycamore trees behind a hand-painted metal fence. The Haunted Yard opens for a few hours on October 31 and is free for brave visitors. The highlight of our morning was a tour behind the fence given by the owner! Wow. He loves Halloween and since September he has spent a lot of time and money working on his annual showpiece. It's so impressive that the thousands of people who come result in the street being closed on Halloween. I think for me to see it during the daytime was scary enough. This Haunting experience goes way beyond Jack-O-Lanterns!
