@universal_traveler I know the feeling!
Alfons Mucha's Art Nouveau painting of a pretty girl with a crown of red, orange, and yellow leaves carrying the delectable bounty of the fall harvest in her arms encapsulates the spirit of the season. Happy Fall Equinox!
George Romney's "Head of a Woman" gives us a charming vision of a beautiful girl, as ethereal as an impressionistic echo in the mind transmitted onto canvas. The brushstrokes of the eyes, cheeks, and nose are particularly lovely.
My first novel, "The Hunt for Count Gleichen's Treasure", chronicling a quest across the solar system filled with romance, peril, and adventure is out today!

This neoclassical painting of Aurora and Cephalus gives us a beautiful and dynamic vision of the softly-lit mythical figures furiously journeying across the gorgeously-colored dawn sky.
@znnavigator Congratulations! It's cool!
@SeventhMagpie I know the feeling! I have several long-standing tabs on my browser myself!
@helenmclaughlinart This is beautiful! I love the colors, the soft lighting, and the natural environment.
@MicroSFF This message is so true, and even aside from that it is a nice story. Fantastic work!
@znnavigator These all look great at full zoom!
Elisabeth Vigée-Lebrun's 1793 portrait of Princess Karoline of Liechtenstein as Iris gives us the lovely sight of the pretty, feminine, and very cute girl flying through the air, her lovely hair and clothing blowing in the wind.
@MicroSFF Nice little story!
My first novel is now complete and will be released in a matter of days. In the meantime enjoy Alexei Harlamoff's painting of the gorgeous young opera singer Félia Litvinne reading a book.

@Lana I hope your sickness will pass soon and I'm sorry for your loss. These sympathy cards are beautiful! You did some great work with them.
Pierre Carrier-Belleuse's "Portrait of a Dancer" gives us the lovely sight of a ballerina, well-poised even at rest, snugly wrapped in a beautiful ballet dress, topped off with a cute feminine bow.
Lawrence Alma-Tadema's "The Baths of Caracalla" depicts the titular baths with luxuriant splendor as a palace of soft pleasures and sensual femininity for the beautiful pampered girls within, a truly lovely vision.
