Pallas Athena Picture

I've always considered my style as an equal mix of Herge', Alan Lee and Arthur Rackham (with a heavy dose of Ingres and Daumier) and here my inner Rackham really came out with those olive trees. Anyway, this is the mighty Athena walking through her personal grove of olive trees (myth never said she didn't have one!). I could talk for days about Athena, she's always been a very important figure to me, but I'll just say I wanted to see her in a more Minoan dress as she did indeed mature into a fully grown Goddess as, well, a Minoan. Any comments welcome!
