Happy Sunday everyone! Something different for my Sunday Snaps today, as I am still unable to use my laptop (Grrrrrr and Eeeek!!), so I cannot actually access any photos.
BUT, this gives me an excuse to stay on the 'love' theme! For all you non-romantics out there, bear with me, as there are only a couple more days to go- then I will be back to normal!!
By now, most of my Followers will know that hubby isn't very outwardly romantic, but he has always sent Valentines Cards to our daughters since they were quite young, and he continues to do so now, even though they are married! He also sends cards to our two granddaughters. All together now - Aaaaah!!
My Sunday Snap this week is actually an oil painting by Frank Bernard Dicksee (who, I confess, I have never heard of). It was painted in 1884 and, apparently, it remains popular because we all still crave 'passion and faithfulness'.
The painting is of a stolen kiss between the most famous star-crossed lovers of them all, and it has been voted the most romantic artwork in Britain.
I absolutely love it! It shows the Shakespearean couple sharing a kiss after their wedding night, not realising it will be their last. Oh, the tragedy of it all!!
For those of you who are interested, Rodin's The Kiss was the runner-up.
I hope my lovely bloggy friends have a week filled with love and hugs. Dont forget, I have been talking of romantic love, but other things are just as important, such as faithfulness and constancy, being there for us, in sickness and in health, to name but a few.
