I was instantly inspired by Enchanted Visions’ theme for October. Eerie Encounter. Isn’t it perfect for this month of Halloween? I love the definition of eerie.
Definition of eerie: 1. inspiring inexplicable fear, dread or uneasiness; strange or frightening
2. frightened or intimidated by superstition
I wanted my painting for the theme to inspire uneasiness by having the subject have a subtle strangeness, where you would look and say there’s something not right, but not see it right away.
Some details of the painting which is mixed medium on 8 x 10 canvas board:
All of the paintings for the Eerie Encounter theme won’t be live on the Enchanted Vision site until the end of the month. I can’t wait to see what the other Enchanted Visions artists paint for this theme.
