Transcendence of the Lilac Tree (Wax crayons)

 

I made this sketch in the Botanic gardens in Bath on a soothing August morning. The ladden lilac tree seemed to rest so calmly in the sunlight. I did not have green crayons to draw the stems, so I went for the golden one. This quickly inspired the angel carrying the burden and the beauty of these flowers. I wonder how many angels carry our own burdens and beauty every day.
