Please go to my Facebook page to see this Blog painting. My friend Gregory is the harpist. He sat playing and singing beautiful Renaissance music under the lilac tree/ bush in the back yard here. He said that the painting wasn't finished. He wanted a Venus. One of my favorites is Botticelli's "Venus on the Half Shell". I always love to do a copy exercise. Lucas Cranach is also a favorite for a German interpretation of lovely Venus.
Please excuse the absence of this painting here. I was proud of myself for getting an iPad photo on Facebook. I am an Internet Idiot.
