Samhain Bat Drawing ACEO


2.5" x 3.5" on bristol board

Happy Halloween! Here is a Samhain bat in charcoal pencil. No, Samhain isn't a species of bat, but it is the name for the Celtic festival that celebrates the end of summer, the harvest season, and marks the start of the new year. It's the time of year when the boundary between the living and spiritual worlds are at their thinnest, allowing spirits to pass through to this world.

Very cool translucent wings! I have a cabin in Bat Cave NC this would look really cool there as wall art! From one artist to another, keep up the great work! : )
