Beautiful work! For some reason it reminded me of the gospel story of maidens keeping their lanterns lit for the surprise arrival of the bridegroom.

Odd you should mention that, as I thought of the story too - but after the fact =)

At some point I'm going to splurge and get the Blackadders :nod:

Have you seen that 2004 version of Salem's Lot? I made the great mistake of watching it the other night....
There's three hours I'll not be getting back...

:lmao: I don't know how I was spared that one-- it's the kind of thing I would've given a chance, if I'd known at the time... :faint:
I watched The French Connection on dvd the other night and just loved, loved, loved it...

I honestly don't want to know if King was involved with that script. If he was, it may be time to substitute Velcro for shoestrings.

I've not seen The French Connection in ages...

Grat work, have you read Le Moyen-Âge fantastique by Jurgis Baltrusaitis?

I'm sorry to say I haven't read it. My French is more than a little rusty :nod:

No problem; i don't know french either but that's just the original name and i have no clue how they named it in english (i read it in spanish); anyway, there's a chapter where the symbolism of rocks and mountains with human features is analyzed both in far eastern painting and the work of flemish artists, like Dieric Bouts and Hyeronimus Bosch, there's a particular detail in Bout's Hell where a man falls into some kind of rocky abyss; i think there might be some similarity (because of the subject and mysterious meaning) between that image -along with other included in that book- and these beautiful painting of yours.
Maybe you're unconsciously perpetuating an ancient tradition.

Interesting indeed, unfortunately it's the second part of another book which was actually published later with less success and that i haven´t found translated(Reveils et Prodiges Le Gothique Fantastique).
