A MUM was left fearing for her kids after finding a creepy painting of her son hung on the wall of their secluded holiday rental.
The family from Sweden were sitting down for dinner in their B&B when their daughter pointed out the bizarre artwork.

They were left stunned at the uncanny resemblance the painting had to their little boy.
The mum, Jennie Stevenson, took to Twitter to share the nightmarish discovery, writing: “Just arrived at our secluded rural B&B to find a painting of our youngest child depicted as a small girl.
“There’s absolutely no terrifying precedent for this, so it’s probably fine.”
The tweet quickly went viral, racking up a mega 1.1million views and over 8,000 likes.
But viewers left hundreds of comments under Jennie’s post, with some even urging her to “get out of there”.
One wrote: “Go! Go now! Don’t look back and don’t let the kids near the pond at the end of the garden!”
Another said: “Nooooo… a lifetime of gothic novels has in no way prepared me for this. RUN!”
A third commented: “It’s going to come alive at night!!!!!!!! It’s the only possible outcome!!!”
A fourth chimed in: “Secluded B&B, Bank Holiday Weekend, everywhere shut, rai, spooky ‘coincidence’ – perfect backdrop for a horror plot.
And one even photoshopped the two images together depicting the striking resemblance,
They wrote: “50% overlay… is it too late to find another place to stay?”
And the mum replied: “OMG. If I find the pictures of the other four of us I’m definitely out of here”.
Jennie then posted a hilarious update, confirming the family had “survived the night” but it probably wasn’t the most comfortable sleep they’d had.
“Did wake at one point to hear an unusual papery sound, as though someone was flipping the pages of a book,” she added.
“Locked the door, obvs, and was tempted to lock the children in their own room, but, ftr [for the record], I did not.”
The mum relocated to Sweden from the UK two years ago and was staying at the B&B while traveling back from a ski trip.
“My daughter just went, ‘Mum, there’s a picture of Barney on the wall,’” she told The Mirror.
The painting was by Swedish painter Carl Larsson and is called, Flowers In The Meadow.
