Poe & The Hollow Crown, my new piece is almost done. 10/30/14
With the theme as chess, I wanted to suggest a chess set more than replicate one, but wasn't sure what to do. Then, day after day, ravens started showing up in my cottonwood tree and dropping feathers for me. I took the hint and followed them as muse. The altered book as playing field is The Complete Poe. The branches are mesquite and cottonwood - I had to have thorns! And a lot of them. Let the game begin!
