Hello ElizabethI love this sketch. The city is acting haunted this evening, with the high winds some garbage bins flew by my window. Helen xx
Hope you've weathered it all OK, Helen! MUCH scarier than just about anything else, at the moment.
Ooh, very haunting! A little melancholy too.
I like that you think it's a little melancholy... always adds to the drama! Thanks!
Really scary!!!Window is perfect!!!!
Thanks so much, R. ! Glad you like it.
Very spooky indeed!
She's a float-y study in BOO! Thanks, Cathy.
Such an elegant ghost!
SHE thinks so. Although I'm not sure she knows she's gone ;)Thanks!
That's scary, I don't want that woman near my bed! ;-)
I don't, either. My pen banished her to the page! ;)
Hello Elizabeth:A classic ghost indeed. The full moon, the Victorian bed, the skeleton figure and the floating, ethereal garments of this most stylish of ghosts. Yes, it could be out of Dickens, but is from your talented pen instead.We are afraid....very afraid!!!!
Glad she's accomplishing her mission ;) Thanks, dear J and L
GOOD MORNING ELIZABETH! Strikingly beautiful and hauntingly FABULOUS!!!! I so love your lines; they are just perfectly done. Have a great day! Anita
As ever, thanks, Anita! You have a great day, too!
Hi Elizabeth! Great job as always. I feel that she's missing something. Maybe she wants to go outside? That skull-face tells everything. But still, she's beautiful (when she was alive :D).
Yes, I think spirits are always unsettled...wanting something more. Good to "see" you here, Dewi!
i’m glad i did not see this one last night before going to bed! great illustration though :)x sandra
Thanks, Sandra! Sweet dreams ;)
Oooooo! There's nothing scarier than crinkled and decomposed sweetness! =D Yuchhhh!NOW, it feels like Halloween is coming - thank you - just in the nick of time! ;)x0(btw, I remember this one, too - it's a good one!)
Hahaha, Katy! I love this, "crinkled and decomposed sweetness." You are a master of descriptives, as well as photography :) xo
The Ghost of Hurricane Sandy!
Yes...and let's hope she stays a ghost. :)
I hope Henny doesn't get scared seeing this!!
If she does, she can cover her eyes. ;)
Dearest Elizabeth and Queen Henny! teeheeThank you for your kind words today as you came to visit. I trust you are no where near the storm? I hope not my dear. We are well, being in the upper midwest, with sunny skies.ENJOY YOUR DAY!! Anita
No. Nowhere close (Pacific NW). Although it seems like the whole rest of the family IS. Glad you are not in harm's way, too.
Ooooh, wonderfully creepy! Love the line style and old-fashioned bed and curtain!
Thanks, Cindy :) She's an old-fashioned kinda girl ;)
Something fishy about a bride floating around with no groom in sight. Did she kill him?? She looks like she's saying, "Who, me?"
You are so good at captioning, T. Perfect.
This makes me think of Dia de Los Muertos. Beautifully-rendered, L.
Thank you, S.
Oh so beautifully delicate and haunting. Have just finished reading "Her Fearful Symmetry" by Audrey Niffenegger and your illustration is just how I imagined Elspeth's ghost.
That name does seem to suit her. Thanks, Claire!
Definitely not taking this Bed & Breakfast.
Yes...would probably be hard to get any sleep ;)
Beautiful!!! AND terrifying!! .......What a fantastic combo, I love it!! :D
Thanks so much, James!
Ooooh! I think I'm going to have nightmares from this lady! *Perfect* for this week's prompt!
Thanks, Mit! Love your green monster :)
Ye gads, woman! You expect me to close my eyes tonight????? Eerie and dang scary. But oooh, where can I get that lovely window treatment!
She's all part of the decor... don't you think? Thanks for stopping by, Bella!
I love a nice pen and ink! Creepy good!
Thanks, Mary Lou. Pen and ink is fun!
Her role of Bride is eternal but that china doll complexion is not! Floaty ghosts are almost as chilling as empty beds.Great, sparse illustration!
Thanks, Jeff! I think floaty ghosts are the only way to go when it comes to that haunting feeling ;)
Thanks, Dawn :)
A scary and haunting image, but it almost seems as if the bride is a bit scared herself? I like the simplicity of the drawing. So few elements, but still speaking volumes. Very nice.
I very much like and appreciate your observations :) Thanks!
Very Edward Gorey-esque, with a hint of Tim Burton...just my cup of tea. May we have seconds?
Best compliment, ever :) ...I'll get right on it.
man its scared me out lol. u r so talented btw! want to follow each other? :)
Sure. Done. Thanks!
Oh how I love this rendering! AND I AM HAPPY that you are DOING what you would do if you were not afraid! SO AM I...it is starting to happen, the process of going out there and just doing the bloody thing without any concerns if I am ever successful. Success is measured in the steps we take and God knows, we are doing that! HAVE A BLAST! Anita
You SO get it, Anita! Keep on keepin' on! xo
Classic, ERS, and you will note the bed is smooth and empty. I wouldn't go to bed with her around either. Nice.
Thanks so much, A. Me neither ;)
Very scary! You have inspired me to look for a haunted house movie. I love the classic ones...and your drawing is classic:)
I love the feel of this, sent a little shiver through my spine!Dixxxxx
Creepy and gorgeous. I love it.
I truly appreciate your comments.I try and reply, so be sure and come back!
