The Homecoming

"The Homecoming"

"She is to meet her future husband at the altar in the old church. There's a terrible storm that night, making her lose control of her car and crash into the huge tree at the bottom of the hill. Noting that she's not far from the church and that her fiancÚ is already there awaiting her arrival, she decides to walk the rest of the way, taking a shortcut through the dark, creepy woods. As she comes closer, she hears the church tower clock strike. She becomes more restless, determined to get there on time... not realizing that she's already dead."

One of my favorite painting techniques is an Oriental approach I learned many years ago from an artist of Chinese descent. I so love the technique that I use it for nearly half of my non-Haunted Studio paintings. After wetting and crumpling the special paper I use, I open it up and begin to apply paint. The paint flows into the valleys of the wrinkled paper and lodges in the creases, creating its characteristic look. This technique defies overplanning, almost requiring me to just let things happen, to allow the painting to tell me how it wants to develop. That's precisely what happened here, so I cannot say I planned this one as carefully as my other Haunted Studio subjects. It just planned itself, as I've explained, and I had to go with it.

All I can say is that this one gives me the creeps.
