One of my favorite artist is Botticelli and I painted my rendition of "The Birth of Venus" already but I had to do it again. This one is different though.
Botticelli painted Flora (spring) welcoming Venus. Flora is about to cover Venus with a red oxide/orange cape. Well I painted Venus covering herself with that cape. I painted also the little pink flowers and I continued the painting on the sides.
This piece measures 6"x12" it is Acrylic on stretched canvas and has a crackelure effect. My prior post is sad but I am already over it. I am a strong believer that when one door closes another better opens up. So everything has a reason in life.
I am not quitting applying for shows. I will continue to do so. I know the market here is very competitive and rejection is part of the process.
I learn that The Bayou city Arts Festival, received 900 applications for only 300 spots. So I think it was a hard work for the jurors to reject artist.
Thank you for all your encouraging words, it meant a lot to me.
