Thanks, all!

Living in a creepy old home is certainly fun, but I did lose a fair bit of sleep as a kid. Ha ha!

These are all photos that I took in my parents' home. I want to continue the series, but I have moved 2000 away from that house, and it'll be a while before I get back.

The stained glass windows are in a little dimly lit hidden spot in the front hall of the house, so I generally never even look at them. The house next door is also built too close for much sunlight to come through them. The only reason they look so bright is a verrry slooow shutter speed. Of course, I was spoiled in that respect. My best friend growing up also lived in an old Victorian home, but her mom was a stained glass artist. (Definitely a big influence on my desire to become an artist.)

The secret room was completely empty except for an unreasonable number of cobwebs. Of course, that just made it even creepier.

great pictures - I love the hand coming through the doorway!  I'd give my right arm to have an old house to fix up - ghosts and all!  Cheesy

WOW! These are just amazing! I love how simple the illustrations are, but they convey so much emotion.My fav has to be the ghost turning off the light. Great Job!

these are pretty!  definitly getting the ghost vibe off them.  I like how you made the ghosts transparent, but have no idea what technique you used.

The house and the art kind of reminds me of the Coraline movie!
