This is a commissioned painting of the ancient Greek figure Penelopeia. She is probably a combination of two earlier figures: the mother of Pan and the mortal wife of Odysseus, who was known for her weaving. My client requested she be shown here weaving the image of her divine son.

This piece is about 7.5x12 and was commissioned as part of a series of ancient Greek mythological figures.
