This painting is one of my most popular prints
But, I painted this a few years ago before I had my new camera and I'm not very satisfied with the quality of this photo. I'm not sure who bought this painting, so I decided to repaint it.
As I was painting, I made a few changes because I
hate dislike painting the same thing twice.
Thus was born:

Nothing like the movie, this quaint little painting includes smiling jack o lanterns, loving neighbors, and a safe place to trick or treat.
Smoke stirs in the air along with the scent of crisp autumn leaves in the Village of Wickford. Tired children drop off to sleep after a busy evening going door to door for treats. Another Halloween has come and gone as jack-o-lanterns burn one last time lighting up the cold crisp evening. Mrs. Prittle has freshed up the outside of home with a lovely shade of dusky purple paint. Her neighbor, Anne, not having quite the courage of her dear friend, decided to use the same color on her front door.
I would love to rephotograph the original if possible because I used the same greens on the hills in both paintings. As you can see, even the color didn't photograph true to life in the first one. I'm amazed at what my new camera can capture. When I look at the photograph of the new painting on actual pixels (huge) in photoshop, it shows little imperfections that can't be seen in the actual painting. I love my new camera! I use a tripod and manual setting when photographing my artwork.
