Strange Light

"Strange Light"

Some months ago, while contemplating my next new painting for The Haunted Studio, I received an E-mail from a devoted fan. It read as follows:

"I snapped this picture about eight years ago... I was quite taken by the house, which, when it was built, was probably quite elegant, but ... had been left to disintegrate. I talked to the local realtor about it. She said many people had offered to buy the house over the years and rescue it from its continuing destruction, but the old lady has refused to sell it. She had suffered a great disappointment in love and could not bring herself to live in the house, nor let anyone else live in it either. Eight years ago, when I was making this inquiry, she was still alive and living in a nursing home, unwilling to sell the house, declaring that it would die along with her. The realtor said it was a pity because everything in it was original, and at that time it was over 100 years old."

The photo and its accompanying story caught my fancy, and I began to imagine the house as it might appear today, long abandoned, and slowly declining, forlorn and neglected among neighboring houses with far more everyday stories to tell. As I considered the old lady and her tragic story, I began to imagine the sort of supernatural happenings that might well manifest themselves, from time to time, within the house. You know -- the sorts of things that might take place any night, but especially around Halloween... Matter of fact, precisely the sort of happenings our young trick-or-treaters have suddenly (and startlingly) observed.

What's even spookier though is that neither they -- nor you, for that matter -- have yet realized that there is a second shadowy figure watching them as well. The moment they do, I'll bet they'll be high-tailing it directly home!

I'm pleased to add "Strange Light" to the Haunted Studio collection. Personally, I consider it one of my most effective and successful paintings to date. I hope it provides you with a shiver or two too, and continuing pleasure in contemplating all year 'round the chilling pleasures of Halloween.
