THREE MUSES 86


Marie is our host this week at the Three Muses and she has asked that we use an ARTIST OF CHOICE as our theme.  

Have you ever wondered what actually happened to Venus after Botticelli allowed her to emerge from the sea?  Mmmmmmmm!

Thanks Marie, for another great theme.

Thanks for looking.

I can't imagine Venus after her bath.. But Your Venus is a very sexy and attractive person I wonder what the blond hair girl is thinking about...
a great art work Ann I love it.

A beautiful modern Venus looking so chic and a bit nonchalant. Love the expression to this creative work of art Ann!

Astrid Maclean said...

You made a modern and chic lady of botticellis venus, and she looks great

Venus in the art deco era? She fits in very well. A list people in those days had to be "languid" and seemingly disinterested and Venus plus friends fit that bill very well. At least they don't have cigarettes hanging out of their mouths which was another fashionable look at the time.
Ann, your artpiece is fabulous. I love it.

Brilliant, just brilliant! I love your imagination and this is a great new Look for Venus, Mind you Botticelli is probably rolling over! LOL! xx

Yvonne said...

Beautiful, Ann! LOL love the way your mind works.

RPL said...

I had a sneaking suspicion that Venus wasn't as innocent as Botticelli made her appear. She looks quite the socialite. Love your art.

Jackie said...

I wonder if Botticelli would recognise her in this setting! A fabulous transformation, Ann.

Glenys said...

That's a very romantic piece.

Christine said...

Oh, I think Boticelli would be pretty amused by your irreverence, Ann. Venus looks so blasè :)
