5/23/07 This is a photo of a painting which I OWN..I did NOT paint this!!!!
This 40"X 50" painting hangs in my living room and is by one of my art professors...Ed Martin who has just retired (this month!) from teaching.
The title/ theme of this painting is "Leda" from Greek mythology....the swan is actually
Zeus in disquise....you can read the story here.
I am considering doing a painting of a woman holding a swan....I'll let you know how it goes....(no, do not expect the erotic!)
(I added the above on Wednesday morning...below is the Tuesday post...)
It is a new world for me as I find my way around here.....I am also researching artwork with swans. I want make a painting of a young woman standing in an ivy covered arch, holding a swan.

I’m not sure yet how this painting will shape up...but I’m trying to do some paintings more rich and dramatic for the show this fall.
