October by escume October by escume
October! The tenth month of the year, though originally the eighth (hence the name “octo”). It’s known as the month of sudden changes, and was termed the “yellow month’” by the Slavs because of the fading of the leaf. The ancient Europeans marked the month as the dying harvest and thus the ending of the year. October was therefore seen as a month of mysteries and dark secrets, which lends itself well to the celebrations of All Hallows Eve or Halloween.

It’s birth flower, the calendula, symbolizes grief and sorrow and is valued for it’s medicinal and culinary properties. October’s birthstone is the opal which is said to bring love, passion and stimulate emotional expression and vigor. It was believed that the opal would crack if it was worn by someone who wasn’t born in October.

October is national pizza month, squirrel awareness month as well as many other notable remembrances :D For those born in October (happy bday!) some traits are: chatty, friendly, opinionated, emotional, honest, loves travel art and literature, and is a daydreamer.

A beautiful painting. I love chrysanthemums, all of the colors, I wish we had them all of the year. The bright colors of autumn, and falling petals, as the leaves fall, and the darkness, with the witchy eyes...this painting seems to have all of October.

WARNING! Carry on reading! Or you will die, even if you only looked at the word warning! Once there was a little girl called Clarissa, she was ten-years-old and she lived in a mental hospital, because she killed her mom and her dad. She got so bad she went to kill all the staff in the hospital so the More-government decided that best idea was to get rid of her so they set up a special room to kill her, as humane as possible but it went wrong the machine they were using went wrong. And she sat there in agony for hours until she died. Now every week on the day of her death she returns to the person that reads this letter, on a Monday night at 12:00 a.m. She creeps into your room and kills you slowly, by cutting you and watching you bleed to death. Now send this to ten other pictures on this one site, and she will haunt someone else who doesn't. This isn't fake. apparently, if you copy and paste this to ten comments in the next ten minutes you will have the best day of your life tomorrow.You will either get kissed or asked out, if you break this chain u will see a little dead girl in you

but like actually tho you're one of those rare artists whose art doesn't suffer from same-face syndrome

like the diversity in facial structure, race, eye shape, etc. is so apparent it's actually breathtaking

no like you actually inspire meee

I'm glad you think so! I'm often inspired by people around me and passerbys I see. If I spot unique facial features, I feel like I must draw it :)

I love the bright golden yellows and deep purple gradient on the girl's petal like hair. The yellow petals almost look like glowing embers in a sea of swirling purple. Very Gorgeous :D :heart:
