‘Any man’s death diminishes me, because I am involved in mankind; And therefore never send to know for whom the bell tolls; It tolls for thee.’ – Donne. Yes, the Grim Reaper is quite scary when he’s in your face waving an hourglass around. The thing that grips me is that he’s not exactly grinning in this painting… it’s more like a ‘Here we go again’ sort of look. The tag on the hourglass reads in Latin: ‘Ex libris mortis hic est vita vester.’ From the library of death, this is your life. Despite all the parts that I hate about this picture, the overall result isn’t bad. Aren’t acrylics one of the best mediums though? It has such a graphic quality… Artwork © Leona Preston
