‘Flaming June’ – Frederic Lord Leighton, 1895

FlamingJune (1) Frederick Lord Leighton, Flaming June, Oil on canvas, 47” x 47’

No, it’s not June, it’s September.  But it’s Spring here in NZ, and life (and summer) is ready to awaken. And I think we need some beauty to remind us why life is worth living.

Breathtaking. Reminds me of that comment by Rand that a painting of an apple can look more 'real' than an actual apple. That dress looks like that.
