Alfie-The Crying Boy
But apparently the Crying children paintings are "cursed" and many people won't have them in the house. I first heard about this when I wanted to buy the matching Crying girl in a op-shop. The urban myth connected to the pictures goes like this... sorting through the debris of many house fires, firemen would often find these paintings untouched by the flames, and thus, these Crying boy pictures are "blamed" for the fires. No fireman will ever own one!
Well, the picture has come down off the wall now. Not because I'm superstitious, its just one less "spooky" thing for Charlie to blame when he won't go to bed.
