Comments on the painting from Wharton:

In working with this image, the ancient Greek hero god Orion kept coming to my mind. Orion, in literature and legend, was a warrior giant who in the Odyssey hunts beasts with a bronze club.  When he is killed by the sting of a scorpion, the goddess Artemis, has him placed in the heavens as a constellation, a fitting tribute for a hero. What made this interesting for me as a painter, was the challenge of showing a body that would be capable of heroic deeds. So, in working with the model, I aimed for a pose that represented extreme exertion, which is shown in the stretch of his torso, the obvious rib cage, and the flushed color in his neck and face.
