In 2010 I drew, "Out of Darkness." dry pastel and prismacolor pencil on cougar 22.5x33 paper.
After Angoline’s death from her lover that went mad, she awoke, and not in a place she thought she would. The darkness. She wasn’t a bad person and new she didn’t belong here, somehow there was a mistake.
Lost from her last moments alive and spending countless years roaming in the cold dark while defending herself against other souls that were stripped of their flesh to bare only their muscles, Death approached her. He wasn't what she expected, he was a handsome well fit and groomed man. But when he grabbed her and said she was his property she fought to get away from him and immediately his face and body became a hideous nightmare. From horror she froze and he took her as his property, making her his leading wife amongst all the others. She was the only one to still have her flesh. He told her she was a gift to him from the gods and that’s why her soul was still whole, not like the stripped souls there. Now knowing her fate, but not knowing why she received this curse, Angoline knew what happened to women like her in these situations. So it was time to escape, but she didn’t know how to when she was literally dead.
So that night, the brides waited for Death to call for them for their nightly rituals. But in the mean time, for entertainment, one of the brides decided to take one of the two swords of Deaths. They rested at the top of his black throne, sheathed to the tall back. The girl stepped down from the cushioned throne when the second eldest wife demanded the girl to return the sword. But the girl protested and demanded an explanation, the woman told her that Death uses the swords power to raise himself out of the darkness to the world above. For us to handle them would open the gates, letting the darkness out into the world and a quick demise from existence. Angoline didn’t care what it would unleash, just as long as she could escape. She immediately took the sword from the girl and jumped up onto the throne and grabbed the other. Quickly as she turned, the brides backed away to let her escape, knowing that if they were killed by those swords they would not come back. Angoline ran when she heard the bellow of Death and escaped from his Kingdom of Darkness. With each motion of the swords her body became whole again with tangible flesh as the light began to cut through the darkness. It beamed down at her as she quickly ran out with another chance to live. However, as she escaped she could feel Death was coming for her, but this time he would have to come and get her in the living world, and she had protection of his blades. Unfortunately for him, without his swords he wouldn't be able to ascend to the top. Right? It didn’t matter to her, all Angoline wanted to do was to escape and have her freedom.
