The flickering candlelight and echoing tick tock tick of the free-standing clock on the other side of the cellar made them become more alive. Animated. They bobbed and blinked and stared forwards, silently observing but never revealing any of the secrets that played out before them.

      1. I did, Isadora, although it’s a digital painting, and this image is totally different to how it was originally… I’ve put a link in my reply to Visionkeeper above.
        And thanks for your comment on the blog’s look… not too dark. Not yet, anyhow…
