This painting is my version of Titian's famous painting of Danaë from Classical Greek mythology. In the moment depicted she is receiving Zeus in the form of a rain of gold coins.

The painting is an original oil painting on gesso primed canvas, stretched over a 24 inch by 36 inch wood frame. It is a careful exercise in learning to paint like Titian, one of Western Art history's greatest painters. After weeks of building up layers of color and rendering the whole image clearly, I decided to take some liberty with the painting and have fun with the paint while partially transforming the little cupid with an unusual effect of the sky.

I painted this while I was studying at California College of Arts and Crafts. There is a detail hint of the San Francisco skyline as seen from the Oakland painting studio behind cupid.

This piece is a classical beauty, and makes for an affordable hand painted version of a historical masterpiece.
