Or clenching hard,
Fingered lips a mouth surround,
All to form a face made of hands.

Gleaming masculine torso, lustrous smoothness,
Thou art so sensuously displayed.
Beckoning my hand to touch each rise and fall,
At once knowing that each stroke will supply,
Increasing beauty, once invisible to mind's eye.

A swan, a lady, a precise mix of metal and artistic genius, equals "Deco-zigned" perfection.
Leda and the Swan by Andre Devrillier _1929, shown left, is quite wonderful indeed.

Like a Vision from an ancient time,
A figure balanced upon a column marble,
Below rites of spring practiced are.
"All hear me! Rejoice and make merry.
Arise Narcissus, return Demeter from Hades' realm,
And Let Stravinsky's music fill my ears".
More of Mr. Mellander's very classy classical style work can be seen here and here.

Click the mouse, a visual feast appears,
A beautiful princess in the comfort of a snowman,
Replete with a garnish of carrots and coals,
Questions posed, some answered, some left to linger, to tease my mind.
More tantalizing mystery prepared by Sauco Max awaits here and

Seemingly random, crescent shaped, strokes on paper,
clustering deeper here, more lonely there, arranged by intellect's breeze,
much like rust colored snowflakes, creating layers and drifts upon the landscape,
like an image imagined in a cloud, Nude 8 takes form.
Simple technique, simple forms, beautifully executed.

A chunk of stone, much like a puppy at a pound, awaits the right person to claim it
as his own. The sculptor, with chisel at the ready, begins the take away process.
Unlike those that work in clay, material removed cannot be replaced. His vision, hidden in that chunk of ordinary rock, seeks revelation. He is able to brush aside the veil of stone and bring to our eyes a creation, once only seen the minds eye of the artist who works this magic in stone.

This exquisite photograph by creative Robert James is both innocent and seductive. The model is no longer naked, but rather clothed in the aesthetic of form, lighting, and presentation.
