Portrait of Barnabas Collins

This is my first (maybe only) attempt at re-creating the portrait of Barnabas Collins that hangs in the Collinwood foyer in the 60's show Dark Shadows. This was originally intended to be used in my Victim of Collinwood shot I took during my Monster Month 2009 project. It was to to hang in the background, however I wasn't able to score an in scale "dollhouse" ornate picture frame in time. This may still happen, as I am sure more Dark Shadows shoots will rise in the future.

The background used is an actual canvas that I painted, to help give it the feel of an actual painting. I am a better photographer, than painter....
