Jules Joseph Lefèbvre's "Morning Glory" is so beautiful and sensual. The girl's pretty face, intense gaze, inviting pose, long hair, sheer dress, and pleasing body all make for a magnetically feminine vision.

This picture of Geneviève Lantelme is an absolutely lovely vision of her full feminine face, her beautifully wavy hair, and her soft supple body draped by a lacy sheer dress, her vanity making it all the more bewitching.

"Accolade" by Edmund Blair Leighton is a spectacularly beautiful painting. The girl giving the titular accolade with her sword is very pretty; her long red hair is an especially gorgeous sight to behold.

When brainstorming alternate names for a smartphone, it occurs to me that "pad" or even "tablet" makes more sense than "phone". After all, which one of these lovely girls looks more like she's using a smartphone?

By the way, the girl writing a letter at her desk is none other than Mary Pickford.

John Collier's 1914 painting "Lady Godiva" shows us the lovely sight of a pretty girl on horseback with her gorgeous and shiny reddish hair tumbling down her shapely naked body.

Charles Burton Barber's painting "No Ride Today" is a pretty scene of a girl gazing out her window longing for the thrill of wandering and the rush of the air past her face, with only her three cute dogs to assuage her yearning.

Edmund Blair Leighton's "God Speed!" is a lovely vision of feminine beauty. The girl's fair features, her peaces and cream complexion, her soft and lush yellow dress, and her hair cascading down her back are all so gorgeous.

Frederic Leighton's "Eucharis, A Girl with a Basket of Fruit" is a beautifully rustic and warm painting for a warm time of year. The sunlight lends a fiery glow to her soft and shiny reddish hair tumbling down her neck.

"The Royal Theatre Ballet School, Copenhagen" by Paul Gustave Fischer shows how lovely the art of dance is, and the sensual beauty of a group of young dancers in gorgeously feminine dresses.

Frederic Edwin Church's "The Meteor of 1860" is one of the few good pre-20th century paintings of phenomena like meteors or comets. Gaze upon that beautiful fragmenting fireball lighting up the night sky!

Today marks 51 years since the first men walked on the moon. May we soon return to stay and to use it as a springboard for adventures beyond.

Émile Munier's 1887 painting "A Tender Embrace" shows a pretty woman lovingly holding her child in her arms, a beautifully warm vision of motherhood.

The image is "The Gower Family: The five youngest children of the 2nd Earl Gower" by George Romney (c. 1776-77).

A touch of vanity is attractive. There are few sights more bewitching than a woman maintaining her beauty, which Frederic Leighton gives us in his gorgeous painting "Light of the Harem".

Our lives, especially on the Internet, would be so much better if we focused our energies less upon arguing and consuming and more upon creating and producing.

The image is "An allegory of art" by Luis Ricardo Falero (1892).

I guess I'm an so I'll jump in. I'm Adamas Nemesis and I've started painting original speculative fiction settings with a focus on outer space and alien planets.
