I went out painting with a couple of friends yesterday and the spirit of Halloween was in the air. I  was in the mood to paint with the warm colors of fall, field gold, squash yellow, and pumpkin orange.  After spending some time driving around, looking for a scene, we ended up at the Bull Valley Staging area above Eckley Pier, along Carquinez Scenic Drive. Across the way, there is a large red barn perched on the hillside. This seemed like a good subject for fiery autumn colors. Well, some how along the creative journey, that Halloween spirit began to show through. It wasn’t until I stopped painting and stepped back that I realized there were a couple of friendly ghosts peeking from the barn window. Can you see them?
