I have a fascination with ravens…and Poe…and poetry. This photo is being posted with Vonne in mind…I love her Rowen stories.

Model with thanks to Christopher and Claire!

Inspired by Edgar Allan Poe ~ The Raven ~ 1845

Once upon a midnight dreary, while I pondered weak and weary,
Over many a quaint and curious volume of forgotten lore,
While I nodded, nearly napping, suddenly there came a tapping,
As of some one gently rapping, rapping at my chamber door.
`‘Tis some visitor,’ I muttered, `tapping at my chamber door -
Only this, and nothing more.’

    Beautifully work Jerri. I like the soft pastel colours in the face. It’s a nice contrast to the overall Gothic effect.

  • Hi, Guntis! So glad you stopped by…and with a wonderful comment. Thank you very much!
