These three Halloween paintings I made in 2013 were inspired by literature. The Hanging Garden is my macabre interpretation of the poem/lyrics, The Hanging Garden, by The Cure. It also ties in with a 1997 film that disturbed me, with the same title. Abandon All Hope Ye Who Enter Here is of course the entrance of Hell in Dante's Inferno. The Vagrant Ghosts of Winter is a line from a poem by Hart Crane.
