This is the most recently completed painting. This painting grew out of my fascination with the Greek Goddess, Minerva. The myth is that she brought the arts as well as war to the earth. War and art? Is it the art that she brought into your life worth the price, worth enduring war? Hmmm... I hope so. Minerva is often depicted holding and owl. I made her a bit of a saint. Can she be a saint after she brought war? I'm going to miss having these paintings to look at and think about.
