Edgar Allen Poe at G.A.

Nevermore....well, here's my tip of the hat to Poe and Gothic Arches. I approached the subject from his Muse...wife (and cousin) Virginia. She died of consumption when she was only 24. It's felt that she was the muse for some of his dark writings. Thanks for looking!

I love your take on the Poe theme especially as it is such a different approach to the scarier takes. Your arch is stunning, the collage work perfect. Take a bow.

Wonderful fresh take on this theme- I don't know much about Poe's wife but am now intrigued- your arch and its elements are elegant and expressive!
