With the bunch of lace at his throat...
The prophetic paintings, it's been a life-long adventure. Well, it's just difficult to have something 'come to you' later like a bolt of lightening (or a smack in the face), when you've been, by all accounts, just painting. Then you realize, with horror, that you are possibly highly intuitive and the medium this likes to reinforce itself with is art. Then you naturally think you are sorta like that psychic painter on the T.V. show Heroes, and then you remember that he was a drug addict and that he died like, right away. There goes that idea. Anyway, these are the pieces loosely based on The Highwayman that were mentioned in the post with the tarot cards further down in the blog somewhere.
If you would like to read the poem by Alfred Noyes, you can find it here.
