I love how the 'darkside' has crept into many of the entries today, Marie, what or who is awaiting at the top you've created a real air of mystery with the colours, b/g & ghostly stairs!Hope you recover from laryngitis soon, must be the drop in temperature over your way or excess singing in the shower!! LOL
Love this! I love misterious stairs. Have you heard of the movie Wishing Stairs? It's Korean and it seems creepy. When I was a teen, I used to watch by myself those British sixties horror movies on TV till later. Problem was climb the stairs to reach my bedroom after the movie... I ran desperately always imagining that there was a spirit right behind me.
Thank YOU for a terrific interpretation of the challenge, Marie. I love the worn edges of the steps, and the dark mystery of it all. Subtle color and texture on the stairs is excellent. Your work is always such a pleasure!
Fabulous, Marie. Dark and mysterious. Wonder where they lead? Excellent artwork as always.
Oh this is masterful blending indeed Marie! I love the spooky softness! =)
Golly Gosh! This reminds me of the stairs in my Nan's house, as a little girl I hated going up to the dark at the top of the stair. No lights on stairs in those days.Just fantastic Marie! xx
Wonder what she'll find up there?? Nice piece :o) Sue
Tune in the spooky music, I don't think she should go up those stairs.Great response to the challenge.Darla
Wonderful artwork as always!
Wonderfully haunting image, Marie. This is beautifully composed, colored, and layered!
A beautifully dark and Gothic piece, Marie, with such depth created by perfect layering and blending. A standing O from me.Sorry to hear you're not well, and hope you're feeling much better soon.
fantastic feeling behind this... love the colors, too!
A perfect Gothic piece Marie! I love the rich colors of the stairs and the wonderfully ragged edhes of the piece. Exceedingly spooky stairs!
I often wonder why participants don't create more often dark entries. I know it's a matter of taste Marie but look at your comments...Everyone likes it !And I'm no exeption.I do LOVE this style and also your gungy look !And with brushes you can do SOOO much !! I have hundreds of them in my photoshop. purchased - borrowed and made by myself.They give images often a extra dimension when used in a correct way and you....did this Marie.You entry is realy majestic !!
Ooohhh, what a yummy piece, some shivers and hesitations, but oh, let's go up! One of your best, Marie!
I love the rich colors, muted but beautiful. I've decided, though, I will not follow her up the stairs. I'm too scared!
How did I miss this Marie I must be getting senile...This is fabulous so mysteriously dark...I love it!!!
Beautiful work again;o)
