Halloween Mayhem

Completed April 30, 2013
While searching for old victorian homes on google images for my next Halloween painting,
I came across this house. It turns out it belongs to one of my favorite author's, Stephen King.
Looking at my paintings, most people would find it hard to believe that I enjoy scary
books and movies.....but I think we all have a little dark side! I decided to have some fun
and incorporate some ideas from his books. While the house on the top right brings back
back memories of "Salem's Lot", the topiary animals from "The Shining" stand watch below.
To the left is the graveyard from "Pet Cemetery and is that "Cujo" standing just below it,

warlock opens his gates to the many children that are out Trick or Treating.
