How then must we proceed with further tales of darkness and horror ? - How other than a tale of Guilt and how it doth yet eat away within our mind until, at last, on the edge of madness, we must give ourself away and confess all. !! 'Twas such that our next tale reveals.... "The Tell-Tale Heart". IKE
Quote "It is impossible to say how first the idea entered my brain; but, once conceived, it haunted me day and night. Object there was none. Passion there was none. I loved the old man. He had never wronged me. He had never given me insult. For his gold I had no desire. I think it was his eye ! Yes, it was this ! He had the eye of a vulture - a pale blue eye, with a film over it. Whenever it fell upon me, my blood ran cold; and so by degrees - and very gradually - I made up my mind to take the life of the old man, and thus rid myself of the eye forever" E.A.POE

So there you have it...our new theme at QUOTH THE RAVEN is to take your inspiration from THE TELL-TALE HEART.
I altered a huge clock..... 14'' diameter ...... i used images from the internet....lots of paint. gesso, modge podge.... stick on numerals.... and gold embossing powder on the clock hands.
I hope you can join us this fortnight, taking inspiration from the master.
I shall enter the following challenges.......
