Artist of the Week -- Alexa Blackman

Last year, I wasn't able to take an art class, but I did have Lyrics and Literature with Mr. Greer and we'd have projects where you could be artsy with it. In this picture, I had to depict what I thought a scene looked like from the rock opera The Hazards of Love by the Decemberists. We could only listen to the words and create what we imagined, since the band never made any music videos for it. In this scene, a powerful nymph who saved the boy from death and raised him is angry because he wants to leave the forest to be with the one he loves. However, his adopted mother wants him to stay forever since he owes her his life.
