Hum...I've never been a big Witkin fan...oh well. I still find the most poignant imagery in either the Preraphaelites or the 19th Century Romanticists. Call me old fashioned. I wish I could paint like Caspar David Friedrich  :shake:

Oh yes, Leilah paints very beautifully. She is a very very very gifted painter. I wish I could paint let alone draw  :doh:

The incredible Michael Whelan just did a gorgeous new Death pic:
http://www.artistsuk.net/acatalo....78.html

Check out the whole page.  Lot's of dark art, and it has a Thanatos pic, which I think was the cover of a Piers Anthony novel. . .On A Pale Horse.

Whelan rocks.

While looking  up other death pics, I found this site.  Some of the paintings are cool, some don't mow my lawn, but it's a bible prophesy thing, so. . .

Have fun.

Thank you Ladies  :color:

Whelan has always been extremely talented. I remember one of his early works in a group show I did in NYC some time ago. I'd enjoyed his work since!

Jasmine Becket-Griffith is also becoming one of my favorite artists...I have a print of one of her paintings, "New Orleans Ghosts", hanging in my bedroom. Looking through her website takes alot of time but I always find something interesting. She has even added some voodoo pictures, and some with occult themes to her portfolio.

The call of death is a call of love. Death can be sweet if we answer it in the affirmative,
if we accept it as one of the great eternal forms of life and transformation.

To the Perugian artist Benedetto Bonfigli, the plague was a winged demon, with a body so decayed as to be virtually a skeleton, equipped with bow, arrows, and quiver.
Seven years later, this same artist depicted the vengeful hand of Christ engaged in the same role.

One of my favorites is a piece called "Finis Gloriae Mundi" which shows a bishop rotting in his coffin.  There's the obligatory "moral lesson" (a heavenly hand with scales containing earthly and divine objects/attributes) but I think the artist was turned on by depicting that rotting corpse. :headbang:

Let me guide myself with the blue, forked torch of this flower
down the darker and darker stairs where blue is darkened on blueness
even where Persephone goes, just now, from the frosted September
to the sightless realm where darkness was awake upon the dark
