Dark Tower by Tijgerkat Dark Tower by Tijgerkat
"Even if the torture stops, I'll die. And you'll die too, for when love leaves the world, all hearts are still. Tell them of my love and tell them of my pain and tell them of my hope, which still lives. For this is all I have and all I am and all I ask."


After the Dark Tower series by Stephen King. Wanted to make a painting for a long time now.

Btw, those are 86 handpainted rozes sewn on the canvas.

Acrylics and black glass on canvas
150 cm x 50 cm

About 30 hours, spread out over two weeks.

It really gives the feeling of the Dark tower - something scary and attractive and mighty and marvelous.

Oh, and those rows of roses are also very... well, expressive. Somehow it associates with ossuaries

Well it's not finished yet and the roses weren't suppose to be so neatly ordered :P But roses are expensive, especially the big ones so I need to save up a bit before I continue with the painting :)

As for me, neatly ordered buds are much more expressive way to show the vast field of roses then, you now, all those petals in the air or several big roses or many blurred roses. This way you immediately think: that is the hole lot of flowers. And it feels pretty eerie. Isn't it perfect impression? ;)

That's really lovely. I don't typically read titles before I look at the art, and my first thought was, "Hey! That's the Dark Tower!"

The roses are perfect.

Thanks :) It's not finished though, you only see a part of the painting, the rest is unfinished and the tower as well as the bg needs some work.
