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!
Born and raised a city girl (Chicago). Now I live 23 miles south of D.C. Have loved art all my life. Primarily self taught. Raised 3 sons solo and they are my pride and joy. I have a 7 yr old granddaughter and a 2 year old grandson. They are the apples of my eye, and I hope they will love art as I do.
