Excerpt: In the middle of her lake, the Lady urges those with dark hearts and cruel desires to gaze into the water. It is not always a sword they see beneath their searching reflection. Some see kingdoms beneath their thumb. Others see a power granted to them without limit. None see the pale swans effortlessly gliding across the surface of the water. The Lady lures the false kings to her breathless depths. The boats return empty. The lady continues to wait.

The Lost Lenore
A reimagining of 'The Raven' by Edgar Allan Poe.
I always felt that Lenore had more to her story than the narrator in The Raven led on; she is not just a footnote in his story. If we wish to continue to have our classics read and interpreted in modern day we must continue to reinterpret them. So here she has become one with the Ravens and will cease to return to the narrator’s side. Quoth the Raven “Nevermore.”
“Eagerly I wished the morrow;—vainly I had sought to borrow From my books surcease of sorrow—sorrow for the lost Lenore— For the rare and radiant maiden whom the angels name Lenore— Nameless here for evermore.”
A speed painting for the topic of 'The Emperor's Gardener'. For whatever reason, the first thing that came to mind was the grim reaper who tends to the garden of lives on earth. Are we not not lucky to be flowers?

The third in my Wagner Opera series. This time for Siegfried; the man who, upon laying eyes on the naked Brünnhilde, at long last experiences fear. This piece will be featured in the Spectrum 23 Art book!
For my first year participating in Inktober, I decided to focus on black and white ink drawings with gold additions. This is one of my favorites!
A digital painting of an Owl Hunt. Done for a dear friend whose favourite animals are Owls, and requested a painting based on the theme of owls. And since I know he also enjoys hunting, this is what happened.
While mental illness can turn the world grey and fill the mind with monsters, it does not define you. You keep growing, even when your branches are bare and the beasts within your mind overshadow the forest. There is strength in continuing. The universe within your mind is filled with more gold than darkness.
Bastet - Cat Goddess
This piece was done for one of my Indiegogo contributors who requested the topic; 'Cat Goddess.' So naturally, I had to draw Bastet; one of my favourite Egyptian Goddesses.

The final of my Wagner Opera Series! Das Rheingold (The Rhine Gold). I just had to capture the moment when Alberich, embittered by the mockery of the Rhein Maidens, curses love and seizes the glow of the Rhine Gold as the sun rises.
