October

I think that most people who enjoy my artwork will agree, October is the best month. First because Fall is the best season (even though I live in Southern California, where we do not experience much change between seasons, there is definitely a difference in the air), and second because of Halloween. All things dark and creepy and macabre!

And here is October’s calendar, where I’ve chosen to do the largest representation of a gemstone yet: an opal brain. Opal is not easy to paint, and I fear I haven’t done the milky iridescence justice. However, I do like that it makes the skull resemble a pirate wearing a bandana. The marigold is October’s birth flower, which the Victorians said represented cruelty, jealousy, and grief. Not exactly pleasant sentiments, but I suppose if they fit anywhere, October would be their month. Plus, they’re golden, like pumpkins and changing leaves and Autumn sunsets.

See? October is the best.
