A glimpse in my painting process on “Leto and the Lycians”. Leto has her twins Artemis (Diane) and Apollo In her arms. The inhabitants of Lycia refused them water from their ponds. Zeus, the father of Artemis and Apollo, punished the l
yceans by changing them in swamp animals. Apollo and Artemis, the god of arts and beauty and the goddess of wilderness and hunting, were considered the plague spreaders.
