I have always loved the spooky and scary stuff. Needless to say October is my favorite month of the year. I painted this because I wanted to create a piece that had a flair of creepiness and Edgar Allan Poe. So this is what I pictured the night looking like when I read the line "once upon a midnight dreary" in his poem. There's even a raven, a one-eyed cat and a tell-tale heart hiding in the painting. This acrylic painting was one on a 16" x 20" canvas.
