Morning in Hades Picture

Hades and Persephone -or- "Come on, what's not to like?"
3'x4' watercolor and goache on 140 lb. Arches hot press

Hades is seen as a morbidly benevolent figure, joking with the reluctant inhabitants of hell. He loves his job, but doesn't understand why Persephone is so exasperated with his behaviour.
Persephone, stolen away from the land of the living, stuck in hell from one pomegranate seed, is on her last strand.
I really wanted to focus on the interaction between the characters, as well as the contrasting emotions between the two.
