Day 9

We made 10 paintings each today. I decided to focus on a journey to the underworld. Annie painted things she likes.

The entryway to Hades is a deep cavern.

Persephone and Hades (Tom Waits) rule the underworld.

Cerberus guards the river keeping the dead from leaving and the living from entering. 

Along the path are formless souls, coal black stallions to draw Hades's chariot, vultures circling the air. Bring coins to pay your passage across the river. 

Annie paints her dad, boyfriend as a fox, and a swimming pool. 

Her two cats are reclining, and she loves them like crazy.

Annie experiments with circles and left over paint. The bottom left painting was made in her dream last night, and then made in reality this morning.
