You found the haunted house very good.
Now I see the little girl! Lol! I really thought it was an owl!

I am new to the Art Colony, but I thought this painting that I finished last night was perfect for the Goosebumps topic.  

My friend wrote this poem describing a ghost hunting walk that we went on and the painting reflects that experience. I get goosebumps just remembering that night . . .

Hike to the Hanging Tree

The night is so still and calm

Even though the sky is bright it is still hours from dawn

The trees stand like giant soldiers in the night

Watching two wanderers out on a forbidden hike

The weather is warm, though there is a chill in the air

As the magnificent ferns guide the pair

Up ahead the destination lies

But the fog, no something paranormal, hid it from their eyes

The pair pushed on, even with the horrifying wailing sound

Until an animal, perhaps and owl, told them to turn around.

Beautiful and to have poem

Wonderful,Althea !!!

A good villain always give me the goosebumps. 

Witches and Goblins and Jack-O-Lanterns bright

Creep through the town on a cold October night.

We hear the sound of running feet, but nothing can be seen;

AND......the strangest things can happen on a C-O-L-D HALLOWEEN!

Very creepy !! Love the poem, Felicia.  Jslkim,your villian looks very suspicious !!! Well done.

This goes to show you how my mind works... given 15 minutes, a pumpkin, and a bunch of markers and items to create something... so I took the cutest thing and turn it sinister... never considered pumpkin drawing a work of art, but technically it is a drawing...right?

Funny Patrick!

Very Cool !! Patrick and threatening !! LOL
