Halloween Ghost (I mean Guest) House – Halloween Blog Challenge

“If you want to build a ship, don’t drum up the men to gather wood, divide the work and give orders.  Instead, teach them to yearn for the vast and endless sea.”
–Antoine De Saint-Exupery

Halloween Ghost (I mean Guest) House – 5.5″ x 8.5″ Watercolor

Welcome to the 2011 Halloween Blog Challenge!  Hopefully we will have links to posts from other artists, with their contribution to the challenge.  I can’t wait to see what everyone does.

My computer will be down for hard drive replacement until this afternoon.  I’ll be around then, to see what you have done.  Booooaaahhhhhaaaaa!  😀

Antoine de Saint-Exupéry , officially Antoine Marie Jean-Baptiste Roger de Saint Exupéry  (29 June 1900 – 31 July 1944, Mort pour la France),  was a French writer, poet and pioneering aviator. He is best remembered for his novella The Little Prince (Le Petit Prince) and for his lyrical aviation writings, including Night Flight and Wind, Sand and Stars.

He was a successful commercial pilot before World War II. He joined the Armée de l’Air (French Air Force) at the outbreak of war, flying reconnaissance missions until the armistice with Germany. Following a spell of writing in the United States he joined the Free French Forces. He disappeared on a reconnaissance flight over the Mediterranean and France in July 1944 and is believed to have died at that time.

His literary works, among them The Little Prince—translated into over 230 languages and dialects—propelled his stature posthumously after the war allowing him to achieve national hero status in France. He also earned further widespread recognition with international translations of his other works. His 1939 memoir, Terre des Hommes, was used to create the central theme (Terre des Hommes–Man and His World) of the 1967 international exposition in Montreal, Canada, Expo 67, the most successful world’s fair of the 20th century.
