You may bury my body
down by the highway side
So my old evil spirit
Can catch a Greyhound bus and ride

Le bal masqué, detail (c.1880). Charles Hermans (Belgian, 1839-1924). Oil on canvas.

Le bal masqué portrays the exuberant atmosphere of Parisian balls in the late 19th Century. It was heralded as a boisterous and unrestrained rendering of the Opera Ball. Hermans focuses on the sexual undertones, the flirtation between the young men dressed in white tie and the richly costumed women.

Here’s another environment! This is a view of Dragonfly Lake at Rainbow Campground from my project “Dragonfly Holiday.” This time I tried some different times of day! I’ve always wanted to try something like this… I feel like I could do a bunch more.
