still life painting of the Iliad and Odyssey by Homer
(here spelled in ancient Greek as Homeros)
acrylic on masonite
6" x 6" or 15 x 15 cm
One way to look at this book painting is to see it as a way to promote reading. The more you read, the more words you know. And as words, besides images, are powerful tools to think with: the more words you know, the better your thoughts will be. I thought this bookshelf with Homer's Iliad was just perfect to illustrate this point.
