“Prologue to Waking Up in a New World”

Multimedia colored pencils; 7 x 10.5 inches

This image has great balance and color contrast—the use of color juxtaposed with black and white focuses the viewer’s eye on the burst of color—the open air outside. There’s a nice skyline, beautiful mixed media use, and encapsulates the theme well.
