Lockdown Paintings of Myth and Wonder tale

These seven paintings were completed during the lockdown Covid-19 pandemic in Edinburgh.  Six are re-workings of themes from classical mythology; five are inspired by Greek myths; one is a famous Byzantine legend, and one 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.
