Girl with Flowers
Joaquín Sorolla y Bastida




Your eyes beguile me
promises beyond belief
flowers to be picked

  2. Yes, her eyes really do seem to be speaking--an elegant yet simple response in one of my favorite forms. Thanks for participating.

  4. I was fascinated by this painting, but didn't know why. Of course, you're right, her eyes are so expressive. I had to choose others because I couldn't decipher this one, but you've done it perfectly.
