King Midas & the Golden Curse
Color: Gold / #FFD700
12" x 16"
About this piece:
The Myth of King Midas tells of a King who desired gold above all else. When he was granted his wish that everything that he touched might turn to gold, he was overjoyed. But soon he discovered that his new-found power had a dark side: Those that he loved (including his pet cat!) were not immune to the touch of his greed. The moral: When your wishes and desires get in the way of the ones you love, then those desires must be set aside so that love might prevail.
About this artist:
Will Kelly loves telling stories with pictures, especially if those stories involve animals, nature stuff, fairy tales, adventure, well... you get the idea. He has hopes of writing and illustrating his own picture book and drawing pictures for all sorts of things. For now, he's hiding out in a cabin in Tennessee, perfecting his craft and drinking the best coffee he can find.
