On one of the Art Exchange sites I used to participate in, the challenge is "Monsters Under the Bed" and to illustrate or create a piece of art about something that really scared you as a child, to be exchanged by October 31st. When I was young, I watched a lot of Alfred Hitchcock movies. But of all of them I watched, none scared me more than "The Birds" (1963). Probably because after watching that movie I was "attacked" by a large black crow as I was walking to my piano lessons! (I was wearing one of those "furry" winter hats with the big pom pom ties that was popular at the time. . .lol). To this day, any kind of black bird reminds me of that day! Oh, and for those wondering, the size is 13" x 13"!
