This is Week 3 of the February challenge for the Quoth the Raven, Nevermore site. The theme is FOR THE LOVE OF POE, and can be interpreted as you please--as long as your artwork is inspired by Poe.
I am currently reading a book called The Raven's Bride: A Novel written by Lenore Hart. Although there remain allegations of plagiarism, I am enjoying this bit of "fiction" about the life and loves of Edgar Allan Poe. This book has made me curious about Poe's older brother William Henry Leonard Poe, and I have done some additional reading about him. Henry, also a published poet and author, died in 1831 of tuberculosis at the age of 24. But, what of his relationship with his brother? There are as many biographers who say the brothers were estranged as there are that say they were close. I have chosen to believe the latter. The younger Poe is credited by Wikipedia with writing, "There can be no tie more strong than that of a brother for brother...."
For my artwork today, I searched for copyright-free images of William Henry Leonard Poe. I found many, but the likenesses to Edgar were overwhelming and I dismissed them as actually being of Edgar. I do believe the drawing that I used might just be of Henry.
For the background, I used "Daniel's Hearts" (stamped twice) from Stampotique Originals. The title was computer generated and printed on white card stock, then matted in black.
I hope you will find inspiration to create something for the Quoth the Raven challenge this month.
