Portfolio: Current submission to 'Re:connect' online exhibition for the Society of Scottish

For the Society of Scottish Artists online exhibition 2021: Belisarius Begging for Alms is one of seven works completed during the lockdown Covid-19 pandemic in Edinburgh.  Six paintings are re-workings of themes from classical mythology; five are inspired by Greek myths; 'Belisarius' is a famous Byzantine legend, and one is a well-loved Scottish wonder tale.  All reflect the world-view that myth is relevant to the human condition and critical to the survival of a healthy planet.
