 14" x 11" original acrylic painting. unfortunately the scan came out a little dark and picked up too much canvas texture.

Love the title. Was it an intended pun? It’s spooky and creepy, but I somehow find the pumpkin adorable. Maybe it’s because I just had pumpkin for dinner two days ago. 2

If you have adobe photoshop, you might try scanning it again, or take your present scan and put an adjustment layer on it and play around with the levels, you can lighten it and shift the curves to lessen the pickup on the canvas texture 12

:-) Tabitha Lynn Ladin replies: "Oh I tried, believe me. This is way better than the original scan. I was stupid and put glossy varnish on it before scanning so the scanner picked up all the glossiness. Won’t do that again2 Unfortunately it sold so I can’t get a better scan. Ah well, live and learn."

Hehe, nice play on words. I like the angle of the sign and of the path the dark rider is galloping on, it adds a nice dynamic feel to the atmosphere. : )

:-) Tabitha Lynn Ladin replies: "Thank you. I so wish I still had this one so I could take a better pic!"

I love what the scanner did! It just adds to the overall eeriness To the painting!

:-) Tabitha Lynn Ladin replies: "yeah I guess the graininess does add something2"
