Artist's description:

This highly textured painting is inspired by Homer’s epic poem The Odyssey. It is such a rich source of creative inspiration with its wonderful descriptions of bravery, struggle and intelligence. Odysseus is on his ten year struggle to return home to Ithaca after the Trojan War. He has many adventures before finally reaching home. C.P.Cavafy’s wonderful poem "Ithaca" which is about Odysseus’ 10 year journey home to Ithaca is a further source of inspiration for the paintings. The poem speaks of the importance of the journey in forming your character, for that gives you experience and makes you what you are. The painting gives the feeling of a journey cross the canvas and the heat of the Aegean.

Acrylic and mixed media on canvas including a small amount of shells from the Ionian Sea around Catania, Sicily.
