"Death and Hell followed with him" - Postcard

© All Rights Reserved
(Click on image to enlarge)
This week’s Sunday Postcard Art challenge was "Pale."

This is 1 of 2 postcards that I made using the same theme of the "Pale Horse" from the Revelation (Apocalypse). This piece is not about the death of someone, but about evil and the end of the world.

Revelation 6:8

"And I looked, and behold a pale horse: and his name that sat on him was Death, and Hell followed with him. And power was given unto them over the fourth part of the earth, to kill with sword, and with hunger, and with death, and with the beasts of the earth."

I created this using GIMP 2.8.14.

I modified the horse and rider, and I used a Script-Fu Filter to create the fog.

The vintage images are from an Internet search. (See the side of my blog for links.)

The font is Bolton.

Two magnificent postcards - the images are wonderful to go with the powerful words. Takes me straight to a particular episode of The West Wing where the president is trying to recall this exact quote!
