Metropolitan Opera Zen

Greg and I went to see Verdi’s Macbeth at the Met last night. On our way there I watched a guitar player performing on the platform of the subway. Later, while observing the sculpture at the top of the stage inside the Met, I decided I’d draw it like Japanese calligraphy because my thoughts were getting a little zen-like. Something about how music could be so grand and so simple. Or how it could be like water and become whatever container you put it in. So I used a brush pen to draw the opulent chandelier and sculpture. -Despina PS- the show was great- amazing talents and I loved the scene when Lady Macbeth loses it- smart graphics in the set design.
