Ah, thanks, Umberto. I have him startled by the black cat at the window, ha, ha. Lots of fun doing this one. He is my favorite poet-author.

Thank you for your comments. The most fun was the brick and plaster wall which was done with pencil first, then thinned out oils on top of that; a similar effect of acrylic over pencil. The outline of the cat in orange represents what happens to it in Poe's story.

Ha, ha...an artist wannabe, but I have messed around with pencils and paints most of my life and am strictly an amateur, largely self-taught.
