I was lucky enough to come across a site with many artists I've not experienced before, like the one above. Here is another one.

Love this picture, which I found earlier while on Facebook. Along with this great picture were these words: "If we all could see the world through the eyes of a child we would see the magic in everything." Mmmmmm, I close my eyes and I imagine baby dragons. Smile

Inside of me now there's this bit of me wanting that magic.

OK, this picture is by an artist called Gale Franey, and it is called, Friends and Acquaintances.

Two paintings of Lamia here. First one titled Lamia, by Herbert James Draper, called simply, "Lamia". Then the second, another painting by John William Waterhouse, entitled, "Lamia and the soldier".

All the paintings seem to be nude girls, really Toltec? Personally, of the ones I have posted, which just happen to contain aspects of nudity, my belief is that the artists painted them that way. Smile

Nice pieces, Toltec. Love Lowry, and Britain at play, and Our Town, are of the type of his that I favour. Dynamic, but also capturing an essence of the lives of the workers, and maybe at times showing bits and pieces of the lighter side. Was your choice of Munch's The Scream a commentary on the lives and conditions of the people on Lowry's paintings?
