Love Letter by Pietro Antonio Rotari at the Norton Simon Museum of Art & an Aphrodite Venus Goddess Website Update

This is a piece that I love at the Norton Simon Museum of Art.  By Pietro Antonio Rotari, a very highly successful artist of his day, I feel that this piece has such charm.  "Young Girl Writing a Love Letter" has such a sweet feeling.  These days I think letters on paper are fairly rare, but I think they are wonderful!

I am linking this post with Inspire Me Monday

Ocean Born Original Painting NFS

"Ocean Born" is a goddess of love.  Born of the ocean, the Greek goddess Aphrodite, also known to the Romans as Venus, has long flowing hair and a golden corset.  She has big green eyes.  The original is not for sale, but I do have her available as prints and ACEOs!

Every week on Tuesday, I try to list a small original, some giclee art prints, and giclee LE ACEO prints at promotional prices. Visit here to see what I have available this week!

Your inspiration was amazing! Beautiful blonde girl, like a princess, but without the crown.
I would like to visit an art museum, but when I live there isn't art museum ): I would like to visit one in São Paulo, but it's so far ):
