amazing...!
"...when the melancholy fit shall fall
Sudden from heaven like a weeping cloud,
That fosters the droop-headed flowers all,
And hides the green hill in an April shroud;
Then glut thy sorrow on a morning rose,
Or on the rainbow of the salt sand-wave,
Or on the wealth of globed peonies;
Or if thy mistress some rich anger shows,
Emprison her soft hand, and let her rave,
And feed deep, deep upon her peerless eyes..."

Keats was a genius, I can't believe he created such poignant poetry before he was 24.

Oh Keats, one of my favorite Romantics. I can almost see him in the man's face.

This is one of my favourite pieces on this whole site.
It sort of reminds me of Victor from Corpse Bride. I suppose the whole Burton/Depp thing is what made arshana notice too.

Anyways, it's absolutely gorgeous. Well done.

I don't know why it's make my think that this is Ichabod Crane from Tim Burton's "Sleepy Hollow" :XD:

I love this piece! This is such an appropriate portrayal of Keats: celebrating and appreciating, but without value judgment... I'm very impressed to see this idea, rarely even recognized, put into visual art. Exquisite!

Hey there, you've been featured in my journal! Just kidding. I really like the piece. It's very sombre and a little macabre I think. By the way, I think your work is exceptional. Forgive my elementary art history knowledge, but a lot of your paintings seem remeniscent of Frida Kahlo and Salvador Dali - two of my favorites. Keep it up!
