Venus The
Roman Goddess Of Love, also known as Aphrodite in Greek Mythology. Venus was born of the Sea and the Sky. There are still shrines to Venus existing in the Mediterranean Region to this day. Each year the city of Venice, named for Venus, celebrates the marriage of their city to Venus. She is also associated with the rites of Spring and Fertility. Though there are many other great Goddesses associated with Love, Venus reigns as the supreme Goddess Of Love.

Background is of my own making, except for some of the brushes used in the brushwork
