Greek legend has it she emerged from the sea and was married off to Hephaestus, metalsmith to the gods.

The story has a "Julia Roberts Marries Lyle Lovett" vibe....

Hmmmm......goddess of love, yet many of the myths that involve her depict her as vain and ill-tempered and easily offended. Sorta like the Hollywood Trioka! :o)


"Vain, ill-tempered, & easily offended"

I don't think I can name 5 women that wouldn't describe.

Dan Patterson:

Julia Roberts married who?


In '93, Roberts married Lyle Lovett, a well-known musician and song writer famous for his clever lyrics and dedication to the roots of country music.

And NOT a GQ-type.


I know it isn't deliberate, but I see an abstract cyclops in this one (not my first impression, but "popped in my head" scrolling down the page). Sideways eye (shell), nose (contour of the knee), & mouth (spear point).

Maybe you could work out some of your paintings so that there were subtle silhouettes that suggest Abraham Lincoln or the Virgin Mary--you could make a mint. : )


Is it me, or is she in the wrong position with something like that lying around?


Love this one!
