For the remainder of the piece I used a .005 micron or prismacolor ink pen. It's like drawing with a tiny strand of hair. I have no idea how many dots/dashes make up this piece.
In researching the pomegranate I learned that it is a frequent icon in almost every established religion. You can find it in synagogues, temples, mosques and churches all over the globe. Each group claims it and identifies it with their faith. So I couldn't just feature it on a little floral plate.
After some further study I wrote the word "Peace" in a variety of languages around my subject. I felt this made more of a statement and took this piece from being just a simple still life.
So here it is. Hope you approve. Hope you'd like to have a print for your very own. And most importantly I hope you find some time of peace and joy during the holidays.
