Displaying image in datalist

Hi, I have a page that displays one record from a database table using a datalist. One of the fields contains an image url. My problem is that I cannot get it to display the actual image. I have tried adding an image control but I get error message "error creating control" in design view.
See the code snippet.
The image control is where the problem is. The entry in the database is "~/images/dbpicture.jpg" (without quotes).
Any help greatly appreciated.
    <asp:DataList ID="DataList1" runat="server" DataSourceID="SqlDataSource1">
            <asp:Label ID="P_NameLabel" CssClass="bigtext" runat="server" Text='<%# Eval("P_Name") %>' /><br />
            <asp:Label ID="P_DateLabel" CssClass="smalltext" runat="server" Text='<%# Eval("P_Date", "{0:d}") %>' />
            <br />
            <table style="width: 80%; border:0px;">
                        <!--problem on next line!!-->
<asp:Image runat="server" ID="P_ImageLabel" ImageUrl="<%# Eval("P_Image") %>" />
                        <asp:Label ID="P_DescLabel" runat="server" Text='<%# Eval("P_Desc") %>' />
            <br />
            <br />
            <asp:Label ID="P_PriceLabel" CssClass="bigtext" runat="server" Text='<%# Eval("P_Price", "{0:C}") %>' />
            Number in stock:<asp:Label ID="P_StockLabel" runat="server" Text='<%# Eval("P_Stock") %>' />
            <br />
            <br />
