Coming down out of the freezing sky with its depths of light, like an angel, or a Buddha with wings, it was beautiful, and accurate, striking the snow and whatever was there with a force that left the imprint of the tips of its wings — five feet apart — and the grabbing thrust of its feet, and the indentation of what had been running through the white valleys of the snow — and then it rose, gracefully, and flew back to the frozen marshes to lurk there, like a little lighthouse, in the blue shadows — so I thought: maybe death isn’t darkness, after all, but so much light wrapping itself around us — as soft as feathers — that we are instantly weary of looking, and looking, and shut our eyes, not without amazement, and let ourselves be carried, as through the translucence of mica, to the river that is without the least dapple or shadow, that is nothing but light — scalding, aortal light — in which we are washed and washed out of our bones.

A Step in the Dark...Poe Canvas

Today's canvas is my first project for my new design team..A Step in the Dark.I have been looking for some where I can try new things and am so happy to be allowed to become part of this wonderful team. Why not pop over to the facebook page and take a look at the other wonderful creations that the design team have made and perhaps think about joining in the fun
The fabulous sponsor for this month is Ikes Art!__digital-art-stamps  .. they have a fabulous array of digital art work to choose from. The wonderful prize for this months challenge is 5 digital images. I wish I could enter 
I loved this image of Edgar Allen Poe holding the candlestick and decided to make a canvas with the image. The image of Poe, I coloured with my promarkers and a normal pencil. I used the pencil to add the shading on his face.For the background, I coloured my canvas with my H2os and added the outside trees with a black promarker.  The saying is one that I love..because I have always considered myself to be a little weird..but I am happy in that space.
Well the coffee is calling and I will be back again later with another piece of work. If you need to know anything else about this new challenge,just leave your question and I'll get back to you. All the rules for the current challenge are on the facebook page. I hope that you will join in. The challenge at A Step in the Dark runs all month, So until later...BT willing of course..take care and happy crafting
