Hey all,

I am happy to show you another older project of mine. This is a little scene I built and painted for a good friend of mine who is a retired teacher of Latin, History and Classics. It depicts his favorite Greek philosopher, Epicurus, who proposed the a beautiful idea of striving for a good and fulfilled yet simple life. Ataraxia is a core term of this philosophy, describing a state of mind of tranquility, peace and freedom from what today we would call stress.

The little vignette imagines Epicurus standing in his garden, enjoying the rays of the beautiful Mediterranean sun and being in a blissful state of Ataraxia.

Hope you like it. Talk to you soon. Best,
