Ariadne's Thread

Here's a painting i just finished. It's for yet another Peix calendar (unorthodox format as usual). Nice to do a bit of painting again after a looong break. The theme for this one is Ariadne's Thread. I'm basically illustrating the myth, with Theseus  just about to enter the labyrinth. I've added a few geometric puzzles and stuff here and there, relating to the problem solving method named after the legend (the solving of a problem with multiple apparent means of proceeding-such as a physical maze, a logic puzzle or an ethical dilemma- through an exhaustive application of logic to all available routes...Phew!) 
Work has been a bit sluggish this summer. Lost a couple of big jobs too, so the morale isn't on top at the moment. Going on holiday soon though. Woohoo!
