Ok, so I’m a little late with this Halloween themed painting but I prefer to think that I’m early for next year.

The title of the painting comes from the line in the Wizard of Oz “I’ll get you, my pretty, and your little dog, too!” spoken by the Wicked Witch of the West.

It’s been a while since I’ve created a small painting based on a Vintage Game Card.  This card is from a game called Who’s the Thief?

I like to paint these cards in groups of 3 with a similar theme. This is the third card in my Music trilogy. The other two are Tutor and The Singer

Here’s the finished painting. I worked on the lower right and the background. I thought the background looked a bit flat so I darkened 2 of the corners and brightened some other areas.
The game was invented by John Spinello as a school assignment while he was a student at the University of Illinois in 1962.  Milton Bradley released the game in 1965 featuring Cavity Sam with his light up red nose and many ailments; Bread Basket, Butterflies in the Stomach, Ankle Bone Connected to the Knee Bone, Spare Ribs, Funny Bone, Water on the Knee, Charley Horse, Adam’s Apple, Writer’s Cramp, Wish Bone, Wrenched Ankle and Broken Heart.
