Persephone, diptych

Mixed media on board, 30 x 48" diptych Based on a poem by Edna St. Vincent Millay – Prayer to Persephone Be to her, Persephone, All the things I might not be: Take her head upon your knee. She that was so proud and wild, Flippant, arrogant and free, She that had no need of me, Is a little lonely child Lost in Hell,—Persephone, Take her head upon your knee: Say to her, “My dear, my dear, It is not so dreadful here.”
