City #37: Fuevenor (Victoria L)

20 x 16", Gouache and Colored Pencil on Paper

One evening, the city of Fuevenor began to evaporate. The buildings grew restless. The central fountain could no longer hold down its bath. As the citizens fell asleep, they attached themselves to their most vivid dreams. Fuevenor's history, memories, and characters all began to evaporate. Historians explain this happens to all cities, but on a different scale. Some cities stand for millennia, but some exist with great intensity, growing at exceptional rates with nothing to hold them down.
