Default Flaming June, by Lord Frederic Leighton

Fluid and peaceful...




"The position of the sleeping woman gave Leighton a great deal of trouble. He made several preliminary sketches to determine the way in which she should lie; in particular he had difficulty making the angle of her right arm look natural. His studies show that the picture went through at least four evolutionary sketches before Leighton came to on the end result. Out of these studies, four are nude and one is draped. The draped figure looks the least lifelike, demonstrating Leighton's need to draw from a naked model in order to achieve a fidelity to nature.

Flaming June has become Leighton's most recognisable picture. The transparent material worn by the sleeping woman - through which her right nipple can be seen clearly - is typical of Leighton's artistic predilections, as are the stunningly rich colours and the perfectly recreated marble surround. Natural light too is a constant preoccupation for Leighton, and here he allows the sunset in the background to appear as molten gold."

Yael Naim- New Soul Lyrics - YouTube

I'm a new soul
I came to this strange world
Hoping I could learn a bit 'bout how to give and take
But since I came here, felt the joy and the fear
Finding myself making every possible mistake

La, la, la, la (21x)
La, la, la, la (21x)

See I'm a young soul in this very strange world
Hoping I could learn a bit 'bout what is true and fake
But why all this hate? try to communicate
Finding trust and love is not always easy to make

La, la, la, la (21x)
La, la, la, la (21x)

This is a happy end
Cause you don't understand
Everything you have done
Why's everything so wrong

This is a happy end
Come and give me your hand
I'll take you far away

I'm a new soul
I came to this strange world
Hoping I could learn a bit 'bout how to give and take
But since I came here, felt the joy and the fear
Finding myself making every possible mistake

New soul... (la, la, la, la,...)
In this very strange world...
Every possible mistake
Possible mistake
Every possible mistake
Mistakes, mistakes, mistakes...

More lyrics: Yael Naim Lyrics

Default Good Night :)

Lonely - Yael Naim - YouTube

You are not alone
I am here with you
Even when you're scared
I'll never leave you
Standing in a storm

Making it insane
Once again, I would try
To enchain you
But you open your eyes to the sky
and whisper

That you are so lonely
You are so alone
You're so alone
You're so lonely, so lonely

So I'm colouring my face
While I am here with you
Imagining the landscapes of your sorrow
Is it yellow or blue?

Colouring the sky and the trees
and the clouds and the moonlight
I'd coloured your heart
If you didn't
I did

Now you are so lonely
You are so alone
You're so alone
You're so lonely, so lonely
You are so alone
You're so
You're so lonely, so lonely

...and you wish you could just find a home

“When we are unable to find tranquility within ourselves, it is useless to seek it elsewhere”
François de la Rochefoucauld

For me...
peace began with forgiveness

I found this artist thru a friend and from the moment I saw her paintings ...I was struck by a sense of peace and beauty.


Happy Art by Marabeth Quin



There is something about a special piece of art that can transform you.

For once you experience it...whether it's a painting or a piece of music, that image...or that song...becomes a part of who you are.

There are just some images, emotions, sounds, etc that affect us...good and bad.

Perhaps if we try and fill our lives with the ones that fill us with joy, then possibly we can balance out the ones that have filled us with pain.
