EHAG Gorey Tribute Challenge
I was lucky enough in April to see a wonderful exhibit of Edward Gorey's artwork at the Brandywine River Museum. So you can imagine when EHAG, the Halloween art group I belong to, came up with a Gorey Tribute Challenge for June, I was ready to hop on board. Today I finished my piece and I just had to use the Headless Horseman as my subject. I don't believe Gorey ever drew him, but I think he should have!
My painting is listed currently listed on Ebay. Please search Ebay for other amazing Halloween artwork by EHAG artists. We're also on Facebook if you'd like to become a fan!
"The chief part of the stories, however, turned upon the favorite spectre of Sleepy Hollow, the Headless Horseman, who had been heard several times of late, patrolling the country; and, it was said, tethered his horse nightly among the graves in the churchyard." ~ Washington Irving
