Black, White, and Walnut

Just a short post from the road -

We visited the Edward Gorey House in Yarmouth, MA yesterday. It was a small, unassuming home with Gorey-like scenes staged throughout: paper bats on the bathroom mirror, a fallen doll on the stairway, a miniature deathbed next to the telephone, and a big ole bear sitting on the sofa. White surfaces and antique walnut furniture provided the perfect "ground" for the black & white "figures" throughout.
