Birth of Athena

Oil on canvas. 4ft x 5ft, may 2011

To tell the story of Athena’s birth was a tricky compositional challenge. Mainly how do you show a full grown woman coming from a man’s head? I still not successfully make this clear with this painting, but after finishing it I have figured out many things I would change. I plan on doing another version of this piece.
