The Past in Myth

8” x 9” x ⅛”


colored pencil, acrylic, gold and aluminum leaf

“The Past in Myth” depicts a Renaissance prophetess standing within an Italian landscape.  Her mysterious gaze, androgynous features, and the sky’s moonbow create an air of mystery.  A gold leafed Diana of Ephesus, surrounded by cypresses and pines in the background, speaks of her feminine prowess, while the astrological symbols on the red collar of her black garment hint at her mystical powers.  This drawing has also been called “Woman in Black.”
