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.
Thanks,
NL
