“Bacchante” 1899 William Adolph Bouguereau Oil on Canvas

Her laughter
was a rolling crystal cloud
of sunshine and mirth
and to hear
its mellifluous timbre
was to be
at the doorstep of Dionysus

    Love Bouguereau and you captured the essence of this painting and mythological romantic figure perfectly

      Thanks MM! I discovered some of his work recently along with Waterhouse researching mythological paintings. I was absolutely stunned by her realism. And Waterhouse’s works are equally breath-taking.

  2. Mellifluous… such a lovely word. Wonderful, Eric!

  3. Great images, as always. Well done!

    I love it whenever you do short pieces. They are so magical, and many layered. Beautiful dear Knight!

  9. Oh, mirth indeed. Drinking and dancing with Dionysus. Such a fun piece. I love your short odes to mythology. ❤️🍷🍇
