October 3rd: Thursday Art Date With Rain - Ghosts and Ghouls

"Madeline Usher" (watercolour, October 2018): In Poe's "The Fall of the House of Usher", Roderick Usher, distraught and mad, buries his sister Madeline alive because he believes that his deadly fate is connected to his family name and his home. Believing that he is the last Usher to survive, he feels he has conquered his doom until one night his bedroom door bursts open to reveal Madeline standing there. He is terrified as she approaches him, she falls on to him, accompanying him into his death, as the House of Usher shatters, sinks into the ground and disappears forever. 

Hello Friends! 

October 3rd's theme for our art date is: Ghosts and Ghouls. (please visit Rain's Garden on Thursday October 3rd to post your link!)

It's the most wonderful time of the year (according to me!) :) I love October, I think it's my favourite month. Fall is in the air, I'm no longer in denial of that! Canada celebrates Thanksgiving in October and of course...HALLOWEEN!!!

I have five glorious Thursdays for my October Art Dates and they are all going to be spook-related!

Here are some internet images to inspire you! I hope you have as much fun with this theme as I will!
