Valentine’s Day

February 11, 2010

Valentine’s Day is just around the corner….It’s not a holiday that I usually celebrate. However, I’ve been showing a lot of Venus paintings in my oil painting classes recently and I thought in the spirit of the romantic holiday, I’d share some of my favorite paintings of nude people gazing into reflective surfaces.

For those who would prefer gazing at men who are gazing at themselves, I’m also going to post some of those – in the spirit of beauty and romance. I wonder why when women in paintings are looking into mirrors, they’re usually considered “Goddesses”, yet when men stare into a reflective surface they’re called, “Narcissists”?
