What a lovely summery image Tess! Have a fabulous day!
Ah I so wanted to be first :))But I'll settle for second… love Waterhouse x
Water! More water! To Waterhouse and Tess!
My apologies for writing real dark to this sweet picture.. but somehow a nude woman lying like that made me think more of abuse than tenderness.....
I wrote about a summer image with a twist. I look forward to the prompts each week no matter what they are. I had fun as usual and am surprised I'm so early. Good luck everyone!
been over a year since i was last here...giving it a spin....based on a woman i saw yesterday...
Happy writing, my friends...and Happy Summer!
Wonderful prompt, TessI went out on a limb on this one, treading darkly but carefully in desire. Thanks again.
Perfect prompt for a warm summer.
A major reworking of an old poem, Tess. Hope it's okay.
Lovely painting - another one of my favourite artists. Thank you for the inspiration!
A beautiful prompt. Yup - summer's here.
For some reason, this prompt evoked darkness for me too.
Another great prompt I look forward to reading all the great poems..
I would have left a comment for Hamish, but wasn't able to do so directly on his blog and couldn't find an email, so just wanted to say that his response to the prompt has such a lyrical quality about it that really adds to the feeling of being 'stirred.' Lovely.
I fell in love with this painting.Mine is up at: http://purplepeninportland.wordpress.com/2014/06/23/sated-on-a-summer-day/
I had a flash the image would be 'summer' and it was ............Sweet Summer! A gorgeous painting, I love the Pre-Raphaelites. Thanks Tess.
