Autumn's Arrival Gave Venus the Perfect Excuse to Cover Up
I suppose that since my collages frequently are about women taking control that it was inevitable that I'd get to Botticelli's famous 15th century painting sooner or later. You might argue that it is happenstance that Venus has grabbed some of the leaves being blown about by the autumn winds as a cover up, but I prefer to think of it as intentional. The leaves were cut from antique postcards, vintage greeting cards and catalog covers. 4.75" x 4.75" on archival mat board. It is matted to fit a standard 8" x 10" frame.
