Different Strokes- Gone "Edgar Allan"

I believe all of the aliens flying around the previous challenge on DSFDF have gotten to me (or inspired madness)! The victorian subject for this weeks challenge made me think "Poe". So this is my tribute to "The Raven" (and RGarriott)  :>)

Im glad y'all "appreciate" my particular brand of humor :>) You may want to reconsider reinforcing this kind of behavior though! ha ha Thanks for the kind words and encouragement. -Tom

Wow, I just saw it, and it is amazing! I love the figure and the "Nevermore" floating across his corner of the painting.

LOL, Tom...I have to put more UFO's around the canvas...cause I love this piece. Imaginative and amusing. You seem like the kinda guy who takes his art seriously, and his fun when he can get it. Drop by my blog and have a cerveza and a chuckle...

Okay, I had to peek, finally. Must you continue to outdo us all?? (wink wink). This is just great and thanks for pushing it to the limit!

While we're on the subject, here's my latest late night thought: Skip San Diego and detour to Roswell instead. Lots of aliens, UFO's and spooky stuff there! Even the International UFO Museum!

No? Well, one of these trips, one of these days. In the spring think about taking the family (and some snow saucers) to White Sands and surf down the dunes. It makes a good loop with Roswell, and if you have time throw in Carlsbad Caverns. Too much fun!

This is a great painting! I absolutely meant to try my hand at this challenge but forgot all about it. I love Victorian houses and Poe looks right at home in front of this one! Your brushwork is beautiful.
