Horror story painting

This one is supposed to be a chunk of wall from an abandoned house on or near the Maine coast -- that's the conceit.

So you've got dingey 1940s wallpaper (actually green paint and maple-leaf stickers).

And some paintings:

  • An abstract...

  • One of the house itself...
  • The man of the house doing something fisherman-like...
  • The missus just standing there...

Oh, and the faces of the dead couple pushing out from the wall. Who knows why.

My favorite part is the kid's drawing that used to say "Thanks Gram and Gramps for looking after me" before it got snatched off -- now it's just dead eyes, ripped remnants, and "AFTER ME..."

Creepy, right?
