"when the child of morning, rosy-fingered Dawn, appeared" by 

ink drawing on 9″×11″ sketchbook paper coloured on computer
inspired by The Odyssey by Homer but I also like the image of a Mother figure with her hands on the world.
“Then, when the child of morning, rosy-fingered Dawn, appeared, I sent some men to Circe’s house to fetch the body of Elpenor. We cut firewood from a wood where the headland jutted out into the sea, and after we had wept over him and lamented him we performed his funeral rites. When his body and armour had been burned to ashes, we raised a cairn, set a stone over it, and at the top of the cairn we fixed the oar that he had been used to row with.”
