Venus and Adonis
Somewhere in one of my Bloomsbury Art Books I stumbled across Venus and Adonis, a painting by Ducan Grant,
I fell completely for it and couldn't imagine any other painter that would be able to paint this Shakesperean poem in this way and those colours in 1919 IT's just So Cool.
I needed to see it in real life which made me travel to England to visit the exhibition in which it was hung.
Back home a seed had planted itself firmly inside my head, wanting to make that painting, in another form namely a diorama.
It took me about a year and a half to dare start this wonderful project which was pure joy!
Jeroen, my talented carpenter friend and great help , made me the bend curtain rod and background hills I wanted.
