And the sketching continues…. I’ve decided to do a couple cameo inspired paintings for my two oval dome glassed frames and the sketch above is one of them… I have a second in the works with and adorable jumping spider in it (they are so cute!).

I have been researching all things victorian and came across grave cages….I’d heard of the bells, the windows… but cages? so cool… first thought was ‘were they worried about zombies too?” Turns out they were just trying to keep the grave robbers out.
