Julia, I am doing my best to catch up, but you're not really helping by posting vids far quicker than I can watch them... Rolling Eyes

Have you heard of Ainslie Roberts? An amazing artist who might interest you, Julia.

He really seems to have a sense of myth and country and their connection.

Had a quick peek on google images. Looks quite good. Some of his females are really eye catching, very romanticised, which I tend to always like, so long as it's not overblown and tacky. Some of his works look like covers of fantasy or history novels.

I do admire Julia's taste in things. And she finds things that I find really interesting but which I might not seek for myself, though I guess I fall upon the same kinds of things on t.v. occasionally, usually by accident, and find them fascinating. The Sophia Loren clip is the kind of happy accident I would like to stumble on more often. I don't wear makeup or women's clothes, but I do find them fascinating. Yes, I also like most that it is women wearing the makeup and wearing the clothes! But all the artyfarty stuff, and quirky history, do catch my attention too. I rather suspect Julia is my Artyfarty Soulmate. I love you

There is a booboo in this vid. Ovid was a Roman poet not a Greek one.
