The Hero's Choice
by Lauren | October 27, 2019
When I first heard the theme of artistic adventure, I instantly thought of the classic moment in adventure movies and novels when the hero has to make the ultimate choice. The choice of whether to embark on an adventure into the unknown, or remain at home with the familiar. Two different paths. Two unforeseeable futures. I chose the ocean to represent the prospect of thrilling adventure, while the brick road extending into the horizon is a more familiar path, though mysterious all the same. The radiant blues of the Caribbean also inspired my piece, which is drawn in colored pencils and charcoal.
