Be warned, this post is one of my biggest, flee now if you want! it's ok!
Val formerly Late Blooming Sparkle now Muse Fondue
suggested the Lady Lever in Port Sunlight
Blooming great idea, we went on Monday
So much Fabulous! I focus on this lovely lady
Andromeda by William Etty
he had a thing for the female nude apparently
he attempted to make her classical by painting chains on her
I like balance so here is Etty's very occasional male study
and a more classical example of Andromeda by Clouis Delacour
'Writhing in fear and anticipation'
Mr F explained about metaphor
So, is it a metaphor for sex?? if so, Art has LOT'S of metaphor's for sex
there are a lot of snakes around women, and a lot of 'fear'
I find old mirrors interesting
how many people over the centuries have looked in it?
I completely pissed the attendant off, because my flash went off
I was captivated by her
'Jeunesses Doree' the gilded youth
Gerald Leslie Brockhurst
the flash went off again, and I seemed to have been followed around the gallery a lot
the attendants must have been captivated by my hat
Emperor Hadrian and his lover Antinous
Antinous drowned in the River Nile and left Hadrian devastated
Tea from a flask
Is it the best tea ever?
I will be linking into Awesome Sacramento http://www.mispapelicos.com/ 'Gothic'
Today I am dressed in a vague Gothic manner, with fake tan and blood red lips
it's the Littlest school assembly
their class performs in front of the whole school
and the parents are placed where everyone can see
Littlest asked me so so nicely
not to wear my petticoat, armlets or green cape
So I am going to be as in-offensively Gothic for my child
But I will pose, I am 'The Raven' Edgar Allen Poe
I do like the weird stuff on the bottom right of the picture
I've no idea what it is
I wasn't smoking
THE END!! WOOP!!
If you made it to the end, you need sustenance immediately
a hot drink and a biscuit should revive you
HAVE A WONDERFUL WEEKEND
and I'll see you next week
