The Creepshaw Place


Sometime things are so deliciously convenient they are irresistible. That's the case with this scene. The house was inherited by John Creenshaw and he had a talent for junking stuff up including the house, the yard, himself...the unintended consequence of his slovenliness was inadvertent creepiness. So everybody called the property, "The Creepshow Place". Its amazing to me that wit never fails to land in fertile ground...Ol' John the "batch" kinda grew into his reputation and became a part time ghoul. Once again the "ironic" rears its amusing head or "how reps are unfairly gained", because while he sorta encouraged everybody to think he was running some kind of haunted house he was actually an amiable, generous, gentle slob unlikely to ever scare anybody. Mind you Halloween was always fun and we would usually head over to his place with the kids for fireworks and maybe to see if he could set some of his junk on fire.

Bink on image to explore the inner reaches of my watercolour world...

Wow, Ron! I've never seen your blog before, but I'm sure glad I found it. I love your style,it's so loose, but still detailed. My favorite is 'Go Big or Go Home'. I'll make sure I come back.

Jeeze, I've been away all summer, and although you must have been busy yourself as you haven't posted a heck of a lot, the new stuff you have posted is fantastic. There has been a change I think. I'm not sure what, more relaxed. It's come from the direction you were working in before, but theres some new twist in your attitude to the paint. Am I barking up the wrong tree?
