PARADISE LOST

With these words ringing around my brain, I created this piece using charcoal and pastels. Paradise Lost represents to me, the loss of the joys of childhood and the realities of being an adult and not having it all figured out. This piece allowed me to practice my hand-lettering, and combine it with my illustration skills on my favorite subject: nature!
