Love, but especially the need to love and be loved is the muse that inspired many artists and inspiration for the great artworks. These are the drawings I’ve made since the year 2000 in my lonely moments when I’ve felt the need to love and be loved and the only thing I could do was to draw and paint all the things I can only dream of. She is just a creation of my mind but I’m so in love with her, the way Pygmalion loved Galatea and the only thing I need is Aphrodite to come into my life and turn my dream into reality.

The “king of the flowers” according to one of Sappho’s poems, the rose, especially the red one, is often associated with sensuality, passion and love
These are some of my drawings of beautiful women with roses that underline their beauty making the image more sensual and romantic
When I was in high school I was fascinated by the image in the movie American beauty and I fantasized about a beautiful young girl on a red rose petals bed
These is another red pen drawing I’ve made in high school
These are my newest drawings of beautiful women with red rose petals
While de red rose is a symbol of burning passion the white one represents purity. These is the watercolor painting of Elize, the painting I’ve made after listening to Beethoven’s song Fur Elize. The first thing I imagined while listening to these song were the white roses and the white rose petals around.

Callisto was one of Artemis’s followers. All the nymphs who followed Artemis(Diana) should stay virgins and were severely punished if they had sexual relationships with men. Zeus(Jupiter) fell in love with her and disguised himself as Artemis to seduce and rape her.When she found out about what happened between Callisto and Zeus the goddess turned Callisto into a bear.
This is my pencil drawing of the transvestite Zeus/Jupiter kissing Callisto

These is my newest oil painting representing the great poet of love and beauty Sappho, the female poet in the ancient Greece who wrote about the beauty of the young maidens, the feminine delicate beauty, so pure, so innocent, so wonderful. Sappho was a feminist, a poet who wrote about women and for women.
