This was painted to advertise a stage production of Edgar Allan Poe's 'The Fall of the House of Usher'. It is my only foray into the Horror genre so far

The crack is clearly visible to the right of the gate and continues to the right of the central tower.

Thanks very much I am glad you like the piece - I was aiming for atmosphere with it.

I love that story, and this piece is just perfect for it. All your work here has a very magical and soulful quality. Great stuff!

Thanks, Uwe. Such comments from someone as talented as you are always much appreciated. I have just seen your latest picture of the old man and the horse, which is breathtaking - one of the best things I have seen on this site.

Thanks. I feel I am just beginning to get to grips with acrylic paints, but I still have a lot to learn.

Thanks, Pierre. I am pleased you like it, having just looked at your own work, which is great.

WOW!!!! This is so different to your other stuff and it is AWESOME!!! What I really love about this piece is that it is really scary on a very subtle way, I mean there are not thousands of monsters or sculls or whatever in this painting, it is the mood you created what makes it scary, really impressive work.

Beautiful work with a difficult medium.

Very atmospheric piece. Just like I imagined the House of Usher. And it is nice to see something different too from your usual Epilogue pieces (which are also great, by the way).

Art at its best.
