  1. Hey, I like your Odysseus and his men escape pastel very much, it echoes my vision of the Odyssey. I'm setting up an Odysseus in Paris tour for my hiking club. It will be a litterary walk about Odysseus and the Odyssey. May I use your painting to illustrate the advertisement of it on their page? Is there a way to PM you?
