THIS WEEK'S CHALLENGE IS:
"OLD" (Vintage, Antique, Rusty, Secondhand, Long ago, Aging, Senior,...)
MANY MOONS ago, the print below, lying in a shop at Patiala, fascinated me. I'm a Jane Austen's fan and the image somehow, evoked that golden period of classic romance in my mind. After buying it, I got it framed and it is hanging here in our living room ever since. For today's theme, after a lot of mind mapping, my choice finally rested on this.
The painting seems to suggest the romantic setting of a bygone era, whence a tall, handsome, debonair young man on horseback is courting a lovely, lissome maiden. They meet ostensibly by chance in the pure and subdued wooded ambiance, on a morning outing.
Surely a whiff and a vision of Jane Austen’s dreamy interludes. How pretty and delicately charming the ladies look in their stunning, lacy long dresses and curls partly covered by their headgear. The two curious dogs complete the amorous setting.
I am reminded of Frank Sinatra’s passionate song about lovers 'meeting by chance but not really by chance,' something like that. If any of my friends help me with the actual lyrics of that song. Thanks!
Friends welcome here as always!
