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.

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!
