Doc Barbara tackles Paradise Lost

   There have been those who have cast cynical doubts on Doc Barbara's artistic talents, particularly when she illustrates works of literature. We therefore set her the challenge of depicting a scene from Paradise Lost as an ultimate test. Yet our heroine has a modest outlook on life and did not wish to attempt naked figures: hence her imaginative vision of the snake waiting for Eve to emerge from the right hand side of the painting. To those who carp and claim that she cannot draw from life, we respond that here indeed is Paradise Found.
