    What a gorgeous interpretation of Botticelli’s painting! Wonderful colors! Her face and hair have this ethereal quality that is just stunning!

    You paint such angels, gorgeous work and congrats on your feature!

  • What a lovely thing to say. Thank you. I would have added this to Pop surrealism but I’m not sure that it qualified.

    I would take her in Pop Surrealism even if she may not be a complete fit….she’s still close. Sometimes I am not even sure what Pop Surrealism really is….lol!
