Chaos and Night

Terrance Lindall is engaged with a new set of color pencil illustrations for Paradise Lost. Here, in progress, is Chaos and his consort Night, who appears to be sprinkling stars into the arch-fiend's hand.  Suns from the material universe, perhaps, into which he will soon soar on those dreadful wings?

Bordering on light; when strait behold the Throne
Of Chaos, and his dark Pavilion spread
Wide on the wasteful Deep; with him Enthron'd
Sat Sable-vested Night, eldest of things,
The Consort of his Reign

       - John Milton, Paradise Lost  Book II, 959-63.

Today we believed in ''time & unforeseen occurrence'' maybe Satan blessed this world of dreamers? Welcome! its the beginning from this sacred ''words'' its a matter of time... Your Brother Bones
