Here's another one by Frederic Lord Leighton.

Flaming June - 1895



This painting was put up for auction in the 1960s and failed to meet its reserve price of $140. It was then purchased by the Museo de Arte de Ponce in Puerto Rico where it has remained ever since.

It had been thought for many years that Dorothy Dene was the model for Flaming June. However, recent research by Martin Postle, published in Apollo magazine some years ago, suggests that the model for this painting was a woman named Mary Lloyd. She also posed for Sir Frank Dicksee's Magic Crystal, William Blake Richmond's mosaic angels in St Paul's Cathedral and Sir John Millais' A Disciple (Tate Britain, 1895). Mary Lloyd also sat for Sir Lawrence Alma-Tadema, Sir Edward Burne-Jones, Ford Madox Brown, John William Waterhouse and William Holman Hunt.

Default The Mysterious Anuket sings

The Mysterious Anuket has PD and we were promoting dance as a therapy but she cannot dance. So it was very important to us that she sing. She recorded two songs for us on her home computer - all the vocals and vocal harmonies and instruments are her, all self-recorded, alone.
This became very important to some of us, that she sing. I don't know how to direct you to You Tube, so you have to go to the link below and then scroll way, way down almost to the very end and click on the Anyone song and then the Constant Sorrow song.
Please listen to the songs - and all the images are my farm. Getting these songs was one of those magic /religious things that often happen with PD.
I want people to hear this because for some of us the songs tied together a whole year of Parkinson's warfare, and there was a lot of trouble and anguish, but in the end the art came back to rescue us from depression and despair. Art does that, and what you have here is a live recording by someone with PD, sent to others with PD. Scroll way down to the 2 photos at the end.

My Mood: Who Loves Art
Default I love art

Here is a portrait I did of my youngest daughter. It was done with colored pencil.
I posted this earlier but for some reason it didn't show up. So I apologize if it is duplicated.

By the way, I just started to read previous post by Bob Dawson. I apologize for totally ignoring it in my response. I don't have the patience any more to sit down and read something that lengthy and perhaps sad and unsettling. I will read it soon. It sounds like something I should read. I did listen to the haunting music at the end. It was beautiful.

It is very long and parts are harsh. It's not for everybody
- but the music is! I am so pleased with those 2 songs - that I wanted to ask people to listen to them even if they don't want to plow through all that text. So you did the right thing - that's what I want - is for people to click on those 2 songs - the images are all of my farm - and the music by Anuket came about by magic. - Bob D

Ah yes, I want people to hear those songs. But as you are doing visual art, you might like Chapter 9 - Jules Olitski and the View of Delft. Jules was a painter. http://parkinsonsdance.blogspot.com/...chapter-9.html
