Inspiration

I love blowing kisses, to dearly beloveds - I see them riding their breeze

This is my 3rd-in-series inspired by Botticelli's painting 'Birth of Venus'. Zephyr is the God of the west wind, a gentle breeze associated with warmth & spring. In Botticelli’s painting, as Zephyr blows Venus ashore on her scallop shell, his breeze scatters roses - the rose is an ancient symbol of love.

The roses in my design on this card, bloom in different varieties from buds - as they are blown into the foreground crossing each other to form kisses

Wind from the West, in our end of Cornwall, creates spectacular skies & sunsets - often rich pinks tinged with a hint yellow, which I chose to colour these rose petals.
