A robed and hooded bronze figure stands before a polished black slab of granite, its face partially hidden by one arm. Eternal Silence, also called the "Statue of Death", was created by sculptor Lorado Taft in 1909.
Eternal Silence marks the plot of hotelier Dexter Graves (1789-1844), who, in 1831, brought the first colony to Chicago from Ashtabula, Ohio.
There is a cemetery on Irving Park Rd., Graceland Cemetery. Some of Chicago most famous residents are buried there. It sounds like a weird place to suggest for travelers but not much compared to going to one in the South like around New Orleans. Just not as many crypts.
meant for a CD cover and it was completed almost 10 months ago... you may have seen a sneak peak of it on my new 2010 calendar, thought i post the artwork officially When and if i have further information on this project i will be updating with info and links, if not hope you still enjoy my artwork
I took a few step by step work in progress of this artwork you can view on my website [link] I have drawn/painted people before but i was really proud how i did the cross design , it was very time consuming especially getting the fonts right.
This was completed with watercolor, acrylics and color pencils on....it's been so long i forgot the size of artwork..lol..i believe around 10x9
The Princess and the Goblin is the story of a Princess named Irene who lives in a castle on a mountain , and in a cave below is a race of ugly looking Goblins who have heads that are as hard as stone. A fatal battle of wits must take place between these goblins and the princess..
My newest ACEO in my fairytale series Limited edition prints out of 9 from my website [link]
Completed with watercolor and watercolor pencils on 2'5 x 3'5 Arches hotpress paper.
I had much fun doing this, i never sketched or painted goblins before and it was fun doing something different
Many thanks to Jaymi for being my model reference daughter of fellow artist and good friend of mine Tahnja Wolter
