This is my newest painting of the goddess Aphrodite giving life to the statue Galatea, Pygmalion’s creation and great love. Beeing moved by the artist’s feelings for his own creation Aphrodite turned Galatea into a living woman so Pygmalion could marry her. I thing this myth represents me be cause like Pygmalion did I’ve always been in love with the women I use to draw and paint even if they are just creations of my mind and I wish they were real.
This is a drawing I’ve made now starting from an older painting, a painting I’ve made by the year 2002 beeing inspired by the song Schiller – Dream of you and the dreams I had by the year 2001 when I used to dream about a young girl with white skin and long black hair, a girl I’ve never meet in my real life. The image below is the old painting. It is not amasterpiece but I keep it cause of it’s sentimental value. It remins me of the girl I used to dream when I was a teenager
I remember by that time the song made me imagine the girl in my dreams on a mountain on the moon singing with her beautiful voice, wearing jewels, with the Earth behind her. Music was inspiring me
