The young mother in William Gale's "Rocking the Baby" is a gorgeous example of femininity, beauty, and happiness, looking like she's daydreaming of her husband making love to her and giving her another bundle of joy.

Spring is near, the time when girls can shed those layers covering their shapely bodies and start decorating them with jewels, flowers, and soft fabrics, like this fair beauty in Hans Zatzka's "The Belly Dancer".

As the social bases of conservatism ebb, it is clear that conservatives' future, be it bright or dark, won't be conservatism as we know it.

This post's featured image is“Peter the Great at Krasnaya Gorka” by Ivan Aivazovsky (1846).

Hans Zatzka's "Moonlight Serenade" is a lovely and vivid scene of a shapely girl showing off her beauty under a star-studded night sky, a smile of joy at decorating her body and having some fun spreading across her face.

Charles-Amable Lenoir's "A Dance by the Sea" shows a beautiful girl, a flower in her hair, enjoying herself by dancing her shapely body amid sheer white fabric, making for a whirlwind of feminine sensuality.

Émile Vernon's "Winter Beauty" shows a girl who looks eager to get into the spirit of the spring season, carrying flowers as pretty as she is through the snow, even wearing a hat with a very springy color.

Geneviève Lantelme provides a lovely vision of feminine winter fashion in this photograph, showing off both her full shapely face and how sensual shiny girlish long hair, fur hat, and a fur coat can be together.

Fresh air and green space, less work than diet and exercise, less invasive than masks and "social distancing", may be keys to a better life.

This post's featured image is "The Nut Harvest" by William-Adolphe Bouguereau (1883).

Alphonse Mucha's "Winter" gives us the lovely sight of a pretty girl posing next to a snow-covered tree, wrapping her whole body up for warmth barring a little part of her fair face looking cutely at the viewer.

Man is born to wander, to see what is beyond the next hill, the next sea, the next world, the next star. Always strive toward the dream of your mind, your body, and your soul drinking in the whole cosmos.

The image is "A profile of a woman looking at the stars" by Alois Heinrich Priechenfried (1867-1953).

Wilhelm Kray's "The Sirens' Song" shows the sea's dark yet enticing side in the form of sirens being the alluring temptresses they are, their lovely bodies seductively posed as they sing sweet whispers into a sailor's ears.

William-Adolphe Bouguereau's "Lost Pleiad", aside from being a beautiful painting related to the Pleiades, the setting of my next sci-fi novel, is also richly evocative of the night sky, each pretty girl a star.

Heywood Hardy's "Holiday Time" is a lively seaside scene of two girls enjoying themselves. The loose hair catching the wind is my favorite touch.

Thomas Kennington's "Pandora" is a striking painting, not because of the girl's body, though it's pretty, but rather her expression, her rich shiny long hair, and the stark landscape that complements her melancholic mood so well.

This wintry portrait by Édouard Bisson shows a pretty girl sitting on a snow-covered branch, the landscape around her a blurry sea of white. Her pose, expression, and long loose dark hair are all lovely touches.
