Artist's Description

“When they reached the end of the room he stopped, and muttered some words she could not understand. She opened her eyes, and saw the wall slowly fading away like a mist, and a great black cavern in front of her. A bitter cold wind swept round them, and she felt something pulling at her dress. “Quick, quick,” cried the Ghost, “or it will be too late,” and, in a moment, the wainscoting had closed behind them, and the Tapestry Chamber was empty.”~ Oscar Wilde
Personally, I think this is one of my best paintings. It certainly is a favorite. I think it’s my favorite because it’s a first for me. It’s rare for me to paint with this much color and looseness. My typical work is realism, tonal, and with a sculptural quality. Why did I paint this so differently? I think it was that glass of wine I had… Anyway, I’m proud of it because this style (prior to this painting) was not easy for me… It’s amazing what folks can discover about themselves if given the chance…

I don’t recall the dimensions of this particular painting but I do know that it is done in oils and the piece was quite large…. about an 3′ × 2′. It was done from several sketches and photos supplied by the client. The client was very pleased to have this work displayed as an example of one of many figure paintings and sketches created by Virginia Appalachian artist, Linda Costello Hinchey
