|Bee Sisters||Hermes the Fox|
|The painting above was inspired by the following text from Homer's Hymn to Hermes:
"There are certain sacred sisters, 3 virgins lifted on swift wings, they teach their own kind of fortune telling…the sisters fly back and forth from their home, feeding on waxy honeycombs...they like to tell the truth when they have eaten honey and the spirit is on them, but if they've been deprived of that divine sweetness, they buzz about and mumble lies."

|During a period of reconstruction in my life, I was moved by a song from Carl Orff's Carmina Burana that reads: "there stood a maid in a red tunic. When it was touched, the tunic rustled. There stood a girl like a rose. Her face was radiant."
