This is my current WIP, of the Goddess Aphrodite. I like to wish everyone a very Happy Valentine's Day. Today, it's actually a day called 'Lupercalia' which was an ancient predecessor of Valentine's Day, in Roman tradition. It is the day of the Goddess Venus. Funny enough I am painting Aphrodite right now, which is the Greek version of this goddess. Venus (or Aphrodite) is all about Love, Passion, Romance, and Sexuality. Now I don't care if you are single, with partner; married, or divorced; gay, or lesbian. Let's just put aside all the character trades we have signed up to play in this life time, and just take a moment to feel what this special day really means, in a much more profound way. To me, love starts with the SELF. If we truly want to experience real love in this life time, we've got to first know how to love ourselves. I am not a church-goer, nor religious, but I've learned from the bible this. I found it to be beautiful and true - “Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs." So I invite you to ask the Goddess Venus, to step into your heart, and feel love and passion for yourself. And then let the love you feel, shine out into those around you. Just imagine if everyone starts to love him/herself a little bit more, how much more loving our world would become?!
