Our Little Lives Are Rounded By A Sleep

This is the second large print to come from Black Pig Printmaking Studio. It's working title was "In media vita in morte sumus", In the midst of life we are in death. I wasn't happy giving exposure to a Christian phrase, after all they need no encouragement, but they do do death well, they have quite a focus on the subject. But then a friend came up with this Shakespeare quote which is a lot better.

It's of my daughter Stella, this time cradling a skull. The first portrait with a skull I did when she was about one and I hope to do a portrait of her with a skull every seven years.
