"Mercury and Calypso"
During his wanderings, Odysseus encounters the nymph Calypso, who falls in love with him and holds him captive on her island. Jupiter then sends Mercury to command her to let Odysseus return to his wife. In this painting I've tried to create a sultry scene as Mercury appears in the grotto of Calypso, which is full of waterlillies and wild flowers with Odysseus basking in a field of flowers at the top.
