Persephone Emerges
Chalk pastel
30"h by 22"w

This drawing was executed to mark the beginning of Spring. Legend has it that Persephone emerges in Spring, when Hades permits her to escape the underworld. Her mother, Demeter, is overjoyed. Thus, the flowers blossom and the trees awaken from their slumber.
