A Krampus for Dark Pop 2, NYC

"A Curious Shelter" by Amy Crehore 2009, 5"x7" (8 1/2" x 10 1/2" framed)
oil on linen
I did this little painting called "A Curious Shelter" for the Dark Pop 2.0 art show to be held in January at Last Rites Gallery, NYC. My monster looks somewhat like a version of Krampus to me. He comes to the girl's rescue, but who knows if he's good or bad. She's a bit vulnerable to say the least. Perhaps, instead of snow, I painted rain because that's what we have here in Oregon. It sort of reminds me of Edward Gorey a little bit. We all had to do a piece of "dark art" for the show and this is mine.

I blogged about this post and am pimping the "Dark Arts 2.0" show to my sorely-missed NYC pals.
