Wilhelm Kray's "Lovers in a gondola in a picturesque bay" shows the water moonlit as if it were a fantastical substance, the perfect link between her and an exciting adventure to new seas and sensations.

Alexandre Cabanel's "The Birth of Venus" shows her luxuriating in her beauty and the world's sensual delights as she's sweetly caressed by each wave, the alabaster darling's sleepy gaze calling us to her, to the sea.

Why doesn't Mastodon, or Twitter, allow us to have an image and a poll in the same toot? Kind of disappointing.

Alphons Mucha depicts Sarah Bernhardt as Lefevre Utile's "La Princesse Lointaine", showing off a vivid feminine look, from her flowers to her adorable expression, that girls in real life today would do well to emulate!

Alfons Mucha's "Spring" shows a fair maiden who truly has the spirit of the season within her, carrying flowers in her arms and in her hair, expression strong yet cute, dress pleasantly feminine and spring-like.

Franz Xaver Winterhalter's portrait of Empress Elisabeth of Austria, her husband's favorite, is a striking vision of what sumptuous brunette waves can do for a girl's look, a lovely example of femininity.

The adorable darling in Jules-Joseph Lefebvre's "Morning Glory" is a wonderful example of spring femininity, from her delicate pose to her sensuous sheer dress, from her lovely flowers to her girlish gaze.

Wilhelm Gause's "At the Vienna International Art Exhibition of 1882" is a pleasant and classy vision, filled with pretty girls wearing feminine fashions. The white outfit the girl in the foreground is wearing is my favorite.

Conrad Kiesel's "Girl with a Wreath" gives us the lovely sight of an alabaster redhead with soft features, full of life, her feminine clothes and adornments, the backdrop, and even her face defined by vibrant, vivid colors.

Dante Gabriel Rossetti's "My Lady Greensleeves" is a beautifully spring-like sight of a gorgeous girl with soft flattering clothing as green as her lovely eyes, sensually posed next to flowers.

My next novel, "Warp Dawn", will feature alien races ranging from mile-long dinosaurs to avian honey-makers, settings ranging from oxygen-drenched air worlds to deep water.

The blue-eyed alabaster darling in Émile Eisman-Semenowsky's "Portrait of a Lady with Daffodil" shows off a great look for a spring girl: long hair, sheer dress, plenty of flowers, and a soft loving expression.
