I sketched this image during a meeting at work (yes I draw while In meetings, it helps me focus) It was an absolutely horrible day for many reasons and I felt as if I was dying, so it felt appropriate to paint this very darkly. While painting it I found a poem by William Blake. "Little girl lost", which I quoted and I really love this poem, and the name Lyca which is in it so I named my image after it.
I feel much better now by the way. Today I'm sitting in my newly cleaned, candle lit apartment and I feel very calm and relaxed for the first time in a long time.
