The Odyssey

by Nicholas Elias

But Zeus who marshals the thunderheads insisted,
‘Sun, you keep on shining among the deathless gods
and mortal men across the good green earth.
And as for the guilty ones, why, soon enough
on the wine-dark sea I’ll hit their racing ship
with a white-hot bolt, I’ll tear it into splinters.'”
-The Odyssey (translation by Robert Fagles)

This 9×12″ oil on canvas board is a study in subject matter as part of an ongoing series of works exploring¬†The Odyssey. This particular image is inspired by the text above, in which Calypso is relaying a warning to Odysseus of the fate that awaits him on his voyage. Accepting fate and persisting through it is a recurring theme in this classic Greek myth.
