CREATURE ORIGINAL PAINTING (ESQUI)
"Creature from the Black Lagoon"
Classic horror movies are loads of fun. Especially when they are good enough
to keep you freaked out for weeks. Keep that wonderful feeling forever when
you display "Creature from the Black Lagoon" by EsQui! This original painting
is ready to hang on your wall now with no need for framing. It is from
EsQui's exclusive "Friday13 Series".
Comments From the artist regarding this piece:
"A request came in a few weeks ago for an EsQui of the Creature of the Black
Lagoon. Here it is, all painted and ready to stare out from your wall. In the
old monster movies, it was always so exciting to finally get a good look at the
monster. By the time they showed it, I was desperate for it, which may have
influenced me to paint them to be able to look as long as I want. I hope you like
it! Notice the trails of wispy and watery tentacles that I painted behind the
creatures head. If he doesn't grab you, they will. Thanks for all your letters
and pics! Happy Friday13!"
Decor Tip from the Artist:
This piece is perfect for a neighborhood fishstore that sells weird creatures of
the deep. Hang it near a tank with an octopus in it and illuminate it with light
reflections from rippling water. Occasionally show the creature pictures of bikini
beach girls, because that's what he likes.
