Paint Party Friday: Unfinished Venus

Hello Chickadees!* I just discovered Paint Party Fridays--and this party is kicking! So, I'm jumping in! I began painting this small saucy Venus illustration yesterday and came to an "I dunno--looks funny, something's missing" point. I'm considering adding text in the upper left hand side of the composition. The inspiration for the piece were the words: all acts of love are her ritual. I feel as though I use that particular phrase so often in my work that I'm beating a dead word-horse. Does anyone have suggestions for better verbage? Or a different idea all together?

[Materials: tissue papers, acrylic paint, ink, nail polish on found paper]

This might not be the direction you wanted to go with the words in the corner, but to me she looks like she'd be saying "Howdy Partner" with a nice little wink of the eye. LOL I agree with Christine, she is saucy and I like it. ;)

Gloria said...

Oh she is very "saucy." I love it! Have fun with PPF, it's a blast!

Yvonne said...

So fun! Text of any kind would be great to add.

Julie said...

oh la la! She's fancy!

Terrie said...

I agree with kijjet above - she looks a little naughty or mischievious. I think more lighthearted or amusing words would be appropriate -
"Love is an irresistible desire to be irresistibly desired." She could embody that! :) Good luck with the phrasing....

Great Venus! Maybe a Mae West quote would work well with her? They both share a saucy attitude!
