Apollo Snaps a photo As Daphne Turns Into A Tree.
actylic on panel
14" x 18"

Apollo, the Greek God, fails to capture Daphne but snaps her photo as she turns into a laurel tree. Frantic to escape his attention, she undergoes this desperate transformation. He proclaims her leaves will be used ever after to crown the victorious and in that way, he can be with her, even against her will.

Apollo, the ultimate opportunist, shows up in my work as "The Selfie Guy."
