I was pleased that my client, a slave of Mistress Venus for 20+ years, wished to give this unusually shaped portrait to her as a present. His brief was quite detailed but straightforward.
The client to the left in maid’s costume kneels with a gift of Louboutins on a tray with a Latin inscription meaning “always obedient”.
Another used and scuffed high heel is pressed and tightly attached to his head.
Mistress Venus is in a tightly fitting warden’s uniform and pulls him towards her on a leash. She wears Louboutin’s of course, too.
On a small table to the side, her used stockings tumble out of a box designated for the client.
The unusual circular form was requested by the client. It was not a problem to paint in such a shape but it may be a challenge for the framer.
I understand that Mistress Venus was very pleased with this present.
