Illustration Friday Part 2:
Spring (Trillium)



Deborah Digges' wonderful books of poems, Trapeze, contains a prose poem, "Trillium," about Persephone. It made the bridge from Monster to Spring I needed.
(Of course, click on the image to see details...)

More information about her book is available here.

i love the vibrant greens and delicate lines. beautiful. Persephone's story was one of my childhood faves.

Wow - and what an amazing idea! Your Cerberus is a wondeful looking monster - obviously as besotted with Trillium as she is with him.

This is such a great way to connect spring and monster, although without the Persephone connection, I would have thought it was a lady, a flower, and some happily sniffing dogs. I like the three vertical nads of color...it creates a simple but lovely composition.

Thanks, everyone!

I had some mixed feelings about a composition where I didn't show Persephone's face/expression, but it seems to have turned out alright.

Appreciate your visits, and your feedback and kind words!
