Quoth the Raven... Nevermore

Once upon a midnight dreary, while I pondered weak and weary,
Over many a quaint and curious volume of forgotten lore,
While I nodded, nearly napping, suddenly there came a tapping,
As of some one gently rapping, rapping at my chamber door....

Edgar Allen Poe was one of my absolute favorite
poets when I was growing up. In fact, come to think of it, he still is.

Maybe that's why I like today's piece so much. The first time I saw it, it immediately reminded me of Poe's "The Raven" and it's one of the very first pieces on Etsy that I ended up making a favorite.

This piece is by Kristin Forbes-Mullane, a very talented artist that runs the KFM Gallery on Etsy. She offers original paintings, illustrations, jewelry and more in her shop and the gallery is filled with beautifully unique pieces with true depth to them.

Kristin is a native of Phoenix, AZ and grew up loving anything having to do with art, especially drawing and painting, which she started at a young age. Her love of art was inspired by her father, who, as an artist and graphic designer himself.

These days, she's all about taking beautiful, peaceful images and making them dark and mysterious. Take a browse through her gallery and you'll see that she especially enjoys using religious icons and old family photos as inspiration for many of her pieces to create effective, emotive imagery.
