finished sketch

Pomegranate symbolism. Totally subconscious (I really just wanted to draw one!) But now looking into it’s symbolism I am intrigued by its subconscious meaning to me, today. Plus like them because it looks as though they are wearing tiny crowns! Drawn and shaded in dark grey colored pencil (because the smudging of graphite drives me nuts!)
Might make it to a final painting, I think. Her neck is, however, going to be shorter. The birds will be scarlet tanagers. I am planning on working with scarlet bird imagery this summer.

There is a new surprise painting I have been working on for the past few days. I might post a snippet painting-in-progress photo of it tomorrow… as I am growing impatient to put some new paintings out!
