New ghost painting, Lenore by an Olive Tree (from Poe's The Raven). Went into a private collection but prints are available.

In a white empire gown, the ghost of Lenore drifts among the olive trees, forgotten by all except the raven. The full moon illuminates the ghostly landscape. The night sky is in shades of dark red and burgundy. This Gothic fantasy landscape, inspired by the "The Raven" poem by Edgar Allan Poe, is an original acrylic painting on a gallery-wrapped stretched canvas (the 3/4" sides are finished off in black acrylic)--no need to frame. It has been lightly varnished to protect the paint and preserve the lustrous colors. The copyright watermark does not appear on the actual painting.
