When Actaeon indavertently saw the virgin goddess Diana bathing, she angrily changed him into a stag. He was killed by his own hunting dogs. The Greek gods were cruel.
A passion for stories ancient and modern has drawn me to mythological subjects for many years. My works on paper combine acrylics, printmaking inks, and graphite. In this case, the green “border” was rubbed into the paper by hand . The mosaic patterning was carefully ruled and then painted with acrylic. I’ve always enjoyed layering paint, ink, and graphite. I now find myself increasingly interested in the power of simple pencil lines and how a small mark can make a huge difference in a drawing.
I am always hoping to make something beautiful.
