Woodstock the Ghost and ...

"Art is a collaboration between God and the artist,
and the less the artist does the better."
~ Andre Gide,  French critic, essayist, & novelist (1869 - 1951)

Like the way this 'peace' came together and LOVE the above quote.  Although, I know planning is important, this 'peace' just materialized from one of nature's Chinese bottle gourds and my God given gift to express myself with a little bit of paint and a brush.  One of my life's blessings (for which I am very grateful) sprinkled into the craziness!  

I call him Woodstock!

he has some slightly invisible friends that always accompany him ...

gotta have a spider to eat the bugs!

need a witch on a broom and a harvest moon!

... and a scary old tree and bats and pumpkins!

and PEACE, we gotta have PEACE!
just in time for Paint Party Friday too!  See ya there!
