about Chase of Days: Artemis & Apollo

According to Greek mythology, Artemis and Apollo were the twin children of the god-king, Zeus.

Artemis is the chaste goddess of young girls, virginity, childbirth, and wilderness. She is also the Greek goddess of the moon. Apollo is the god of prophecy, medicine, the arts and of the sun.

I’ve chosen to paint the heavenly twins in a playful game of chase, eternally traversing the sky with their chariots of the moon and the sun, and incidentally giving mankind day and night, the seasons, even life; just another fun game for the gods.

I’ve used the primary colours of red, blue and yellow, giving Apollo as the sun god the warm side of the spectrum, and Artemis as the moon goddess the cooler colours.

And the Chase is on!
