Hey You, Super Human

... We interrupt the regular programming for this much needed break ...

revised  version of William Bouguereau's "The Bather" painted in 1879 (found on flickr)


...................


Don't forget to
hang up your cape


&
take
a
load
off
!


Here's to a
 restful and restorative weekend 
.............


 Cheers !

Lisa

SHUT THE FRONT DOOR!!! LOVE it! And, while not a cry out for my overriding masculinity, I want this baby hanging in my home! I used to spin myself senseless as a 7 year old waiting for the "flash" to commence. Probably why I get motion sickness these days. Okay, enough... t.m.i. :)

Being a huge fan of Bouguereau's, I know this painting well (sans the Wonder Woman costume) ~ love how this just sent it to a whole other current day level!

Bon weekend to you!

Thanks for following my blog and your nice comments. I wish we could go out for coffee too. I just started following you as well. I love it. BTW, I had a Wonder Woman bathing suit that looked almost like that when I was a kid....hadn't thought about it in years. Thanks for the flashback :)
