Persephone


I painted this right after 9/11 and the Twin Towers – it was inspired by the horror of that and I was reminded of the myth of Persephone, daughter of Ceres.

Persephone wound up marrying Hades and because she had eaten 6 pomegranate seeds while visiting him in the underworld, she had to stay 6 months of every year there with him.

Here is the painting:
