This is a watercolor pencil immage of a Laurel. Now, not all of you are familiar with mythology, so I’ll enlighten you:
Laurel was a nymph who’s father was a minor river god. Somehow, this beautiful nymph playing on the edges of her river caught the eye of Apollo, the god of arts, music, and light. He pursued the nymph, and as she ran from him, called out to her father to save her. From his river, the father did all he could do; changed his daughter into a tree. A Laurel. Laurels have since been used to crown winners in ancient Greece and in the modern day Olympics.
