Oil pastel challenge and chat for October

It's October already and I've decided to pick a theme for this month's challenge
IMAGINE
To really give your imagination a free reign, you're welcome to use your own references and give a narrative of the painting if you are so inclined.
My pics are all from pixabay.
Looking forward to seeing your art work!

Nice work, Christel!

I'm having trouble deciding which one i could get a handle on. The one you picked is my current favorite.
