Feodor

November 11, 2012
An elderly, bearded man sleeps against a tree. The rolling forest in the background is changing hues for autumn.

Digital collage with cut paper elements. 11” x 23”. September 2012.

An illustration for the prompt “island.” After doing some research on Beaver Island, Michigan, I learned of Feodor Protar, a Russian disciple of Leo Tolstoy who chose to live in solitude on the island. Though he was a hermit, he often helped the islanders where he could. An island within an island.
