Artist's Description

This was inspired of a photo of my husband and son. Ron was reading from Time magazine and Robbie was soooo excited!
pencil drawing on 9″×11″ sketchbook paper coloured on computer
There must have been some point where Zeus sat sat Heracles on his knee and told him a few tales of the good old days. Heracles and his twin were just eight months old when Hera sent two giant snakes into the children’s chamber. Iphicles cried from fear, but his brother grabbed a snake in each hand and strangled them. He was found by his nurse playing with them on his cot as if they were toys. Astonished, Amphitryon sent for the seer Tiresias, who prophesied an unusual future for the boy, saying he would vanquish numerous monsters.
Anyway…used a favourite photo for the pencil drawing and then coloured the drawing in on the computer. About 2/3 way through, I made a mistake and didnt notice until after I saved the image. I ended up with a green baby. AAArrrggghhhh!!! So, after the cursing died down, I copy and pasted the pencil drawing over the coloured (green) baby and started all over. Somehow the baby ended up smaller than in the drawing.
