She's alive! Alive!

I have been neglecting my poor little Halloween art blog for a bit too long but the EHAG B&W Fright Challenge has given me a great reason to post. When I think of b&w frights, I think of those wonderful old  horror movies I used to watch with my grandfather when I was a kid. Everything from Dracula to Frankenstein to Abbott and Costello Meet the Mummy.  I love them all. My favorite is The Bride of Frakenstein, you've gotta love the hair (that was my favorite part to paint). I've painted her on an oval wooden plaque which I've antiqued an added a crackle finish. Her frail body looks like it can barely support that enormous head! Be sure to search EBAY for other EHAG art, I'll have my Bride up for sale starting sometime today.


  1. Jen, you are an amazing artist! SHE IS GREAT!

  2. She's beautiful! I don't think I've ever seen a better depiction of the Bride before!

  3. Everything is scarier in Black and White.

  4. Fantastic! I am going to be her for Halloween this year! I need to figure out how to do the hair. :)

  5. Jen!!!! That is my favorite Movie! She is the theme of my Halloween party this year....Celebrating the films 75th Anniv. LOVE your new piece and really like all the EHAG artists challenge pieces on eBay! You guys are doing GREAT!
