Et in Arcadia

I don't normally use lettering in my artwork, but this is an exception to that rule. "Et in arcadia ego" means "even in paradise am I", the "I" being death. An homage to Nicolas Poussin, perhaps, who painted a famous version of this subject...

Et in Arcadia, 2013, acrylic on cardboard, 48" x 36".
