This painting was inspired by the fact that I've scared myself lately watching "American Horror Story" alone in this old and often creaky house. The colors are bright and vibrant which is a great contrast to the darker feel of the subject matter. This piece comes ready to hang with painted sides and a semi gloss varnish.

In the end, she hopes that her art will look and feel like an emotional story or journey.
