Illustration Friday - Puzzled

 "Aphrodite at Starbucks"   oil on canvas    48" x 72"

There is nothing more puzzling than love. Just when you think that Love has found everyone else but you, she arrives, bearing a cup of coffee.

Neat style and really bold interesting colors. It's got a bit of film noir feeling to it (but not really, since it's Starbucks!). I'm not sure why people are floating or why she is wearing that hat, but I don't mind.

Thanks, Cindy, I love getting feedback. It's interesting that you feel it has a film noir feeling to it - I never thought about that, but I love anything retro! As for the floating people - they have fallen in love and heading for Cloud 9 - how's that for artistic license? And the reason they have fallen in love is because of the presence of Aphrodite, the Goddess of Love. Who knew she would show up in Starbucks? Her hat is adorned with a swallow, her personal symbol in mythology.
