The Devil Queen

How my wife and I sold our souls to the Queen Anne Victorian we tried to save.

My Photo
Location: Crow Mountain, Arkansas, United States

Synopsis: This is a cautionary tale. A seriously disturbed couple find the charming, old ruin of a Queen Anne Victorian in Russellville, Arkansas, and buy it for $1.00. They tore the roof off, cut it in half, and had it moved to some land they owned sixteen miles away because they didn't know any better. Since then, they have hired and fired contractors, had all of their tools stolen, re-wired, re-plumbed, insulated, and essentially rebuilt the entire house. Their only problem is that after four years it still isn't finished. Now they are tired, broke, and wonder what in the hell it is they've done to themselves. And, it's haunted.

Haze and Hickories

That is right. Since things are starting to calm down some, I've started painting again. It's been a while so I'm a little rusty, but here is my most recent painting. If anyone is interested in it, please let me know since I now have a new computer and a mortgage to payoff.

Anyhow, hopefully we'll have a productive and fun weekend. I know the very idea of it is shocking. If we're lucky, I'll have some progress to show you all come Monday.

Have a good weekend if you can. Cheers.

John, that is a kick-butt gorgeous painting, an amazing combination of peace, mystery and energy, and if we weren't broke I'd buy it in a heartbeat. It is underpriced by at least $200, however, so if I were able to buy it, it would be like stealing it. Or something. Anyway, I love it.

Brenda, thank you. That is quite a compliment. $200 more, hmmm? Definately something to think about.
