Description

Textured, impasto painting in my 'Unpopular Penguin' series. Painted sides, ready to hang without framing.

'The Odyssey' is the second oldest surviving book in western literature, the archetypal story of man and the sea. My paintings take their inspiration from classic books, and I've given this particular painting a sense of the sea and of antiquity, with the washes and the text dissolving and streaking.
