Birth of My Birth of Venus Collage

Yes, I finally brought forth my collage version of "Birth of Venus" by Botticelli. I didn't go for the full-length version with the seashell and all that--this was difficult enough.

All this effort is for our member Fay Picardi's upcoming book, Simonetta. It is about the real-life Venus that Botticelli's painting was modeled after. The Pieces of 8 will have our versions of Simonetta at the book launch. Stay tuned! This will be fun.

Here's the real Birth of Venus:
