In the Shadows by izzybeth

Does anyone remember the quirky PeeWee Herman show?

This doll was found on the top shelf of a friend’s bookcase. if my memory serves me correctly, he was essentially the only item on the shelf. at eye level… just staring… with that glazed look in his eyes…

Ever since the beginning of memory, I drew, painted, and crafted. As a child, above our family couch was a painting of lush woods and trail leading to a cottage house. I followed the trail with my mind’s eye and invented a family that lived in the cottage. Sometimes I would ”sit“ under a painted tree and imagine the world of the painting. My orientation shifted, I was no longer sitting on the couch, I was under the artfully rendered tree. This was the beginning of a love affair with art.

    this guy looks a bit creepy. would hate to have him in the bedroom as I’m trying to sleep.
    i can just see it now, I wake up at 3AM and he’s standing at the foot of the bed, holding my moms head in one hand and an axe in the other saying something like, it’s not a nightmare and mommy here can’t help. milk and cookies?

  • Hi woofie… Creepy is sorta what I was going for… Given the checkered past of mister Herman I thought “In the Shhadows” would be a great title…

    He was just a bit maniacal. yip Ax in hand, it could happen. jeeeeeeez, I will pray for NO nightmares tonight though!!!
