I pretty much start to fixate on Candy Corn in late September. It taunts me from my beloved seasonal aisle in CVS. My costume concept deliberations begin in May, this year on the short list is Hall and Oates, Sushi, and a Kathy Griffin’s Mother. (tip it!) My pumpkin sits and waits patiently on my table until it is time to do a costume change, and become Jackie O Lantern. The seeds get roasted on tinfoil in my oven, as the “Great Pumpkin Charlie Brown” special plays on my TV. I love Halloween!
The one piece of Halloween I don’t indulge in so much is that scary part, the dark, the dismal, the spooky. That’s about to change. Welcome to this year’s:
Halloween Post of Scary and Bad artwork for Nurseries and Children!!
Please note: ALL of the artwork below is currently actually and seriously being sold as artwork for nurseries and childrens rooms. Please proceed with caution.
First up, is a series of painting that I would title “Dreary Toys in Swamps”
While on the theme of transportation……
Most rabbits are cute and adorable cotton tailed friends. The two below are possessed. They are zombie bunnies who, if given the chance they will most likely eat your brains.
If the eyes are the window to the soul, what is the meaning when an artist decides to leave off the entire face? Beware of the spooky collection of Boollerinas below.
While on the topic of Ballerinas, there are A LOT of Ballet themed art out there, most of it is sweet and saccharine “dreckitude”. BUT- the ballet bar was really raised or lowered in this case with the piece of….let’s call it decor? below.
Depressing Fashions as a theme for Little girls!
Take a gander at the drabtastic looks below, for the mother who wants her daughter to grow up to be frumpy.
The Painting below of Mermaids in Hell, reminds me of a Rubens Masterpiece!
Another compositional mess awaits you below. Its an exterior view of a home that looked really familiar to me!!
Animals are a favorite theme for Nursery artwork, below are some examples.
Wishing everyone a very Happy Halloween!
