How come my posts and replies on here get about as much engagement as I get at the other place (you know the site...) despite having less than a tenth as many followers? Fediverse people are the best people; I really appreciate you. 🥰

Painting is Pierre-Auguste Cot's "Springtime".

Oh well. I was staring down the barrel of a really boring weekend where I'd just be sitting at home doing college work, but turns out I'm going to have a ballet lesson! So yay me!

Painting is Herbert James Draper's "Ballerina".

Can you believe meteorological fall is already a third over? On this last day of the first month of fall, let's take a moment to gaze at my piece, "Autumn fire".

Even with the lulling caress of cold air from deep in the northern interior, I yearn, like the girl in Karl Wilhelm Diefenbach's "Capri III", for another sort of air, that fresh cool spray of the saltwater sea.

30 credits in hand, 92 left to go, my start date at WGU is tomorrow. I'd like to share my experience with enrollment so far.

This post's featured image is Henry Raeburn's "Colonel Alastair Ranaldson Macdonell of Glengarry".

The nights growing longer, Jupiter shining brightly in the sky, the sleepy caress of autumn's chilly breezes; the vibes recently are reminding me more and more of Alexandre-Auguste Hirsch's lovely vision "Night".

Feels great to come home with temperatures in the 40s; actually feels like fall air. 🌬️🥰🍂🍁

Painting by James Arthur O'Connor.

Ever since I first laid eyes on it as a child in the theater I've been in love with the place. Yes, that's definitely what I want: Padmé's apartment.

Show thread

Just yesterday I was gushing over those apartments in California that remind me so much of classic Star Trek, but strike all that: what I *really* want is an apartment just like the one Padmé Amidala had in Star Wars!

In Frederick Leighton's "Eucharis, A Girl with a Basket of Fruit" a darling with hair as cooper as fall's leaves enjoys the crisp air and sunlight's warm caress as she takes autumn's bounty to somewhere wholesome and feminine.

My photographic piece "First frost"; hoary crystals give the field a magical quality as the long shadows of autumn's sunrise dance over the landscape.

Ever stop and think how weird our world is, full of people at home only abroad, welcome only among another people, tastes in beloveds so specific it's like they have amnesia? People that include yours truly.

This post's featured image is "Rest on the Flight into Egypt" by Luc-Olivier Merson.

This morning I'm really enjoying this "symphonic suite" compilation of Toto's soundtrack for the 1984 "Dune" movie. 🌌🙂🎶

Always knew I had a type, but my two favorites by far of the set I submitted to EvilVizier (on birdsite) are *so* similar. Could almost pass as the same woman; same pose, same expression, even the *backgrounds* are almost the same. And I didn't even realize it until today... 😮

People think sharing a house and even a bed is the mark of a "serious" relationship, but really, isn't it *much* more romantic for a man to carry his woman in his arms off to her bed, tuck her in, and kiss her good night?

Painting is Sándor Liezen-Mayer's "Sleeping Woman".

It's a theme I keep coming back to, but I think each attempt is lovelier than the last: my new spacey vision "Dust lanes in blue".

Victor Gabriel Gilbert's "Sleeping Beauty" shows how the earthy tones of fall can look wonderful, even on a beautiful girl: the lush rust-colored environment goes *perfectly* with the fair darling's blonde locks.

My new photographic piece, showing rusty-leaved tree branches swaying in the wind, forming a window to the brilliantly-lit autumnal fires of the woods beyond.

"Laura" by Conrad Kiesel shows its subject fresh and ready for an occasion as adorable as it is feminine, her doe eyes filled with nothing but the sweet hopeful feelings of a cute girl who's spent her youth well.
