This is my personal interpretation of the story of the birth of the Goddess Venus. Supposedly said to have emerged from the sea as a full-grown woman. I wanted to portray her innocence before she woke up for the first time on earth, before she realized her identity as the Goddess of beauty and desire.

"..and white foam arose from the immortal flesh; with it a girl grew.."

I updated this painting because it still wasn't sitting well with me, especially the water. Much happier with this final version.
