“Tell me, is it just a dream?"
Surely most can say they have at one time or another felt like they were being watched …………Somewhere in the Twilight Zone…..
“You unlock this door with the key of imagination. Beyond it is another dimension, a dimension of sound, a dimension of sight, a dimension of mind. Your moving into a land of both shadow and substance, of things and Ideas. You have just crossed over into the twilight zone”…
I made this Spooky Portrait in 2009 when I purchased the Antique Gold Gilded Frame at a Gothic church sale in the country and was pleasantly surprised in discovering a secret hole for spying but not your usual hole found in an antique painting that undeniably often makes an appearance in old Gothic VAMPIRE MOVIES such as the FAMOUS HAMMER HORROR WITH PETER CUSHING AND CHRISTOPHER LEE ( MY FAVOURITE SPOOKS ALONG WITH DEAR OLD VINCENT) But this Antique frame came with a little something extra special, a unique natural keyhole in the wood that backed the mysterious lost portrait it once held : )
Imagine what dark, delicious haunting mysterious thoughts ran through the dark hidden secret corridors of my mind at that very moment ???? All sorts of tiny little spider webs in the back of my mind that kept secrets and journals of lost and forgotten curious and spooky items resurfaced and gave sustenance to more dark and peculiar haunting imagery and that's where this lovers eye arose from.
Did I see it or dream about it? Maybe it was a little bit of both......
Experimental in much of my art , you will always discover I have gone a little further in what I create, making more of a unique and signature art creation.

P.S. DOES THE EYE IN THE GOLD GILDED FRAME LOOK FAMILIAR???
