Last Days of Summer and the Beginning of Terror


We’ve sort of picked a “Last Days of Summer” theme this week so here’s my contribution. For me the last days of summer kick me in the butt to start getting some work done for Fright Town. I have been dragging my feet all summer and only have one corpse done with the other skeleton hanging in the back ready to become rotten.

Now that it’s starting to get chilly at night, the light is shifting, and the leaves are changing color, I start to get motivated. I guess I’m still on the school schedule, whether it was college or my son being on summer break, where summer is sort of your slacker time. It seems sort of silly to be sitting inside sculpting when it’s gorgeous outside and there’s so many other things going on. Plus it’s Portland, so you have to grab the opportunity to enjoy the brief window of nice weather we get for a couple of months.

I am really looking forward to another Fall in Portland. This town was made for the season, especially with all the old trees lining the streets. I love driving down McLoughlin Boulevard by Eastmoreland when the leaves have changed color and the wind is blowing them all around. It get’s me psyched to make things to scare people. I can’t help it, I’m a horror and Halloween uber-nerd. So this Labor Day weekend is time to get my art supplies organized, clean out my airbrush, and start on the projects who’ve been staring at me all summer. I like the nice weather but I really like the rain and the smell of decaying leaves much better. I guess that’s why I live here.

    I always hate the onset of fall/winter. It must be my NE roots. Anyway, this little view of the upcoming seasons was a delight… You may be into the scary stuff…but I
    ‘m a little less afraid.
