I had no idea what this weeks prompt meant when I first read it, but took a stab at the fact (no pun intended) that it might be Marie Antoinette taking a walk on the dark side. I was right.
Marie Antoinette is not my thing at all, so this was indeed a challenge.
This piece started with an actual painting of Marie herself. I added in various elements, including my own drawing. The original painting features a bust where Poe is in my version. I thought that Poe would be the perfect accompaniment to her darkly decorated room.
