The Embalmer’s Gift

The piece titled: The Embalmer’s Gift is a 14″ x 17″ sketch done in 6B soft graphite.

A man has suffered greatly at the loss of his wife. His evil plot, masked in the subtleties of of an old man’s humility, now moves to extinguish the last bastion of light in a world grown full of peril.

The hope of Darkshire twinkling in the gathering dark, for it is but a candle in the wind on a pale spring night.

Belly Of The Beast

Continuation of Forgotten, My Love.

A dirty bed with an old pipe frame. A typewriter. A note from a mother to her daughter.

The wood planks creak beneath her feet, the windows breathe through the shattered glass. The air inside is old and damp.

A sound can be heard coming from somewhere inside the cabin, if only a whisper of wind.

Behind the bedroom, the small hallway turns to a cellar. A lantern glows a mysterious light. There is an ominous presence here that looms over everything the shadows touch.

A crank handle lies atop wooden boards used to cover a hole, but there is no winch.
