"Ghosts are real, this much I know. There are things that tie them to a place, very much like they do to us. Some remain tethered to a patch of land, a time and date, the spilling of blood, a terrible crime... There are others, others that hold onto an emotion, a drive, loss, revenge, or love. Those, they never go away."
I was recently inspired to create this piece after watching the film Crimson Peak. I really enjoyed the movie, and while I will admit that it had some flaws the imagery was simply stunning. I am a sucker for a classic Victorian Gothic romance and I just couldn't help myself. This is the first of several such pieces inspired by the movie.
