An Invite to Eternity
I’m a big fan of the “Penny Dreadful” Showtime series. When I discovered it, I explored their website and found some poetry that was influential on the show’s creators. This painting is the result of reading “An Invite to Eternity” by John Clare. It’s written from the point of view of a gentleman trying to entice a maiden to join him for all of eternity. But when I read it, I imagined Death wearing its finest offering a wilting rose of a “heart”, coming for the maiden. She may decline his generous offer of eternity for only so long, in the end we all succumb to Death’s embrace. The poem can be found on my website along with the painting.
