Although the names and dates have long since been worn away She remembers.

She remembers every single one and weeps for them all.

Some kind of immortality - never to be forgotten. Even though somehow she who remembers is a little... well... strange...

That is an interesting design on that stone here. Do you know "Monkey Island"? It somehow reminds me of LeChucks Fortress.

:-) Dave Cripps replies: "Monkey Island? There’s that game again. I seem to have missed out on the fun there. There are two stones like that. The other is a little more eroded. They must be at least 300 years old. Whoever paid for them must have really loved the person they were for. "

It’s both a dark, sad and beutiful image. First I din’t see the skeletal hand, so it took me by suprise, hehe. Love the tombstone too, especially the pillars at the sides.

45 Dave Cripps replies: "Had to make the hand stand out a bit thinking it would get rejected as being just an old gravestone. It’s in better nick than the other one whick has a bit of moss on it eating into the soft stone. I think they’re limestone which is why they are not standing up to the weather as good as they should."

beautiful and sad picture. Well done again.

:-) Dave Cripps replies: "Thank you. It was meant to be both and thankfully I didn’t mess it up.

Too much..."

Never forgets, and wonders, wonders what would have happened to them, if fate hadnt stayed their heart.

45 Dave Cripps replies: "Oh a poet!
Was that a haiku?
My feet fell off."

Capturing the folds of the cloak with those few broad strokes is amazing. I really like the effect it creates.

:-) Dave Cripps replies: "thank you. I just wanted you to know she was there without going too crazy with the robe."

NIATHLAN: *hacks up a steel wool ball on the page*

:-) Dave Cripps replies: "Cool free Brillo pad!"

Neat piece! very original 1

:-) Dave Cripps replies: "Inspired by those gravestones. Very mysterious!"
2 Jul 2011:-) Samuel E Martens
The combination of the description and the image is so sad! Was this inspired by some personal tragedy. But I guess to inspire such emotion is what art is all about.
