The Birth of Venus

acrylic on canvas; 16x20”; This new painting fuses today's modern infatuation with i-devices to Botticelli's "Birth of Venus", a paean to the goddess of love. I find Botticelli's Venus to be one of art's most graceful female figures - my Venus is still graceful, but chubby. Shimmering apps cascade around the descending Putti. This acrylic painting is mounted on nice heavy duty stretchers, which gives it a substantial feel on the wall. The painting wraps around the sides so it needs no frame.
