There’s no such thing as ghosts.

LINOCUT PRINT ghosts... there's no such thing as themimage link

I’m looking through old pictures for a project/submission I’m working on and came across the following.  The artwork was created in a couple of poured acrylic classes that I went to with friends once and with family another time.  The classes were held in the basement-turned-art gallery of one of the oldest still standing buildings in the downtown.  After each class I took pics of everyone’s finished work.  I snapped a couple of mine and looked at them on my phone.  There was something very strange in one of them and I showed one of the ladies who I both know and who also used to hang work there and she said, matter-of-factly, “Oh, that’s Charley.”  She and a couple of the other ladies there added support to that statement.  Part of being a member of that gallery was to volunteer so many hours a month and many times they would be in the gallery alone.  Or maybe not totally alone as they would see  and hear unusual things and attribute them to “Charley.”  I will now show you the pics I took on my phone and leave it to you to decide what’s going on.

This is how it looked when I finished it there:

    Your finished project is amazing! And I kind of want to hear more about Charley. Charley was not what I expected while I was reading your text.

      Thanks, Mark. I really don’t know much about Charley other than what’s here. I’m sure the ladies that were there could tell you stories.

    I have a few friends who pour and they say it keeps moving for a good while. I love that Charley came to visit you… He seems friendly enough 😉

    Photos often show what our senses miss. Your work deserved Charley’s admiration, I’d say. (K)
