The painting on the easel is the 60 X 48 inch oil on canvas begun April 30 titled Prometheus Inspired. It is based on a photograph from the internet of Polish bikini fitness model Małgorzata Mączyńska with a male model. The composition is so well constructed that I chose to interpret it with minor changes and create a totally new arrangement of the background and its relationship to the figures. Changes are the cropping to the top of the female figure, opening of the figure’s mouths and the position of his left hand away from his knee. Along with the geometrical shapes in the background are details of water, wings and a fire. Prometheus was said by the Greeks to have given man fire, provoking the ire of the Olympian gods leading Zeus to have him chained to a mountain where a vulture came each night to eat his liver, which grew back each day. At the right of the painting is the still unfinished Athena’s Dilemma.
