About the Art

Method: Colored pencils
Description: “I’d visit Egypt to tour the pyramids and the Nile River with Cleopatra, then I’d teleport to France. Paris is the city of love, so I added a heart with the colors of the French flag. Next would be London, where I would fly by Big Ben with Mary Poppins. My final destination would be India, where I would see the Taj Mahal with an Indian princess.”
