"AND DO WE NOT LIVE IN DREAMS" 

The idea for this painting evolved as I was working on some of my other Chalice themed pieces. I wanted to create a rather grand romantic painting drawing quite liberally from historic romantic imagery. The quote from Tennyson seemed to fit very well. Here are some of the sketches and working drawings that led up to the work on canvas.
