Re-birth of Venus

{Rimi Yang - Heart - mixed media on wood - 12 X 12 inches from Bill Lowe Gallery}

I saw one of Rimi Yang's paintings in a Traditional Home story on an Atlanta-area showhouse, and I loved its whimsy and femininity. He has quite a collection on the Bill Lowe Gallery website, some of it ephereal and lovely, some of it disturbing. I especially like the mixed-media on wood portraits of iconic images, like Boticelli's Venus, above. It's one of those faces you recognize, no matter how it may have been modified.

thanks musette, I'm tempted to call the gallery to see how much it costs, but I'm afraid to know! Maybe they have a giclee...

This is beautiful! Birth of Venus makes my 'Top Five Paintings of Hot Red-Heads'. Rather smugly, I have seen it in the Uffizi and it is awesome.

HI Robin,
I was looking for "bird decor" on Google, and your blog popped up. I love it -- I think we share a lot of common interests. Anyway, I look forward to reading some of your blog entries. . . and checking out some of your links!
