Bubble bubble.....

 Now you have to remember that we don't really do Halloween in Australia, despite the chocolate-driven intentions of the children in my street, so this week's challenge at Opus Gluei appeals to the witch in me, as opposed to pumpkins.  I hope the Poobahs take their usual relaxed view of things and don't get too cross!  Anyway, its taken so long for me to find my work table, not to mention my scissors, paper and double-sided tape that I hope I'm forgiven

So in homage to my favourite Romantic artist, John William Waterhouse, and in deference to the witches of my imagination... here are my three triangles, one circle and one half-circle as per recipe.  And I even managed an embellishment or two, if you count the sketchy additions as well as some tiny bits of bling.  You might need a magnifying glass to find the half circle, but its there.... follow the line of sight.

I REALLY like the witches in "Hocus Pocus", especially Bette Midler's buck teeth and flaming red hair....and the wonderful Thachery Binx of course (in cat form).  I've never been able to look at my vacuum cleaner with quite the same equanimity since..........

Thanks to imdb for the photograph from the movie.


  1. Oooooh. WOnderfully witchy entry to the OPUS GLUEI challenge. Beautiful piece of art. I would love to be able to cast spells. BWAHAHAHAHA and throw in a good cackle to boot. I really feel so badly for those whose environments don't partake in Halloween. It's sooooo much fun. Hocus Pocus is one of my all time favorite movies. I'm so glad you play with us.

  2. Ah, Hocus pocus - grew to love it after multiple viewings with my young niece. Now I love the nostalgia of those memories when I see it on the television. LOVE YOUR PROJECT! You bet we're easygoing, but you satisfied the requirements.

    I'm with the neighborhood kids, you need to celebrate Halloween and then have a chocolate hangover on November 1. It's worth it!!!!

    Welcome back, we've missed you terribly!


  3. I love this piece, the hats make it so special!!
    If you come to my house, I'll give you candy. But you must wear a costume.

  4. For heaven's sake, you're so creative. All I could come up with for this was a pumpkin. lol


love to know what you think.......
