Blanket of Snow

Bald eagle is flying over a blanket of snow. Artwork done for Illustration Friday word "blanket." Digital painted background composited with scanned pen & ink & marker bald eagle illustration.

According to Dante, the tree of knowledge blooms with crimson-purple flowers and the eagle represents the Roman Empire. If it is true the USA is the new Roman Empire, there is much to be learned.

The starkness of the background and the tree pair well with the detail of the line and marker-stroke of the eagle.

It's a scary thought comparing the contemporary with the Roman Empire. Mainly because of how it all ended...
