Another crack at the Legendary fable of the River Styx,sometimes refered to as the Boatman,anyway he's the one who ferries the dead from this world to the next across the River Styx..you had to pay him too (or he would take you to a worse place,Ahar!)...Hope you like my rendition of it...Jack.

Wonderful Jack, so much detail, love how you did the rocky cliffs and the stairs leading up to the church on the top.

I get the feeling of mystery in this lovely painting

Mysterious and somehow, a feeling of hopefulness. Nicely executed work; especially like the golden light. Didn't they used to put coins on the eyelids of the dead to pay their passage? L

Great work Jack:):)
A river Styx very bright and warm compared to what one might imagine, but very effective.
Make me think about Dante's Caronte;)
