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.

You realize you can post them much faster than we can watch them, right?

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.
