I have always enjoyed Halloween. Growing up, the fanciful and frivolous imagining of ghosts, ghouls, and things that go bump in the night was a source of immense family fun. My mother would make my brothers and me wonderful costumes to wear and we would go to our churchs Trunk or Treat or the local Boo at the Zoo to gather holiday candy before we even started making the rounds to our neighborhood houses. It is fond memories like these that led me to create my latest work. Transylvania is the first in my Worlds of Wonder series and a homage to all the great monsters of my childhood Halloween frights. Dracula, Frankenstein, the Werewolf and the Mummy dominate a landscape filled with castles, haunted forests, spooky graveyards and a gathering of villagers ready to rid the land of any troublesome beasties. Beyond these, many more references to our collective popular cultural can be found on this canvas. I think you will all enjoy finding the many creatures who pervade the ghostly scenery and discovering who lies resting in Kings graveyard. One small detail of personal note that I want all to see is our family dog; Poe a nervous pug that barks a good game but who ultimately stands behind us peeking out while protecting our house from assorted Halloween visitors. He sits in the carriage on the Invisible Mans lap with a wide-eyed peer at everything happening outside. Transylvania begs for exploration by anyone who is stout of heart and of good humor. And, as always, I want to thank you all for sharing my adventure in art if you dare.
