Botticelli’s Birth of Venus is stunning, but it never captured the delivery part of birth for me.  Botticelli’s Venus is serene.  She is arriving at the shore, the messy birth process long behind her.  My Venuses  are actually in the process of emerging from the sea foam.

Perhaps Persephone?

Persephone in Autumn, An Original Painting by Jenny Armitage

Perhaps Persephone (watercolor 16 x 22) SOLD

Initially, this painting was inspired by a bird’s nest left over from last Spring.  Looking at the nest, the woman with bird’s nest hair and the whitewater dress rising from the ground just came to me.  She became Persephone as painted her.  Now she is drowsily sinking back into the earth before her return to Hades and the Underworld. She’ll be back in the Spring.
