Wicked Wednesday- the Look

You know sometimes for me , all it takes is "the look" to turn my knees to jelly.
In my current WIP (The Master and the Muses-working title) my artist from Diary of Cozette-Thomas Rodin, will be featured in the lives of the three women he chooses to serve as his models for his famous paintings. But perhaps the real creativity is what goes on beyond the canvas!

Back in jolly old Victorian England there were double standards for men and women, as well as by social class. For a woman to sit for an artist, or pose nude for him labeled her as a prostitute and tarnished her reputation for ever finding a "good" husband. And yet, these models became celebrities for the faces being depicted on artwork bought by England's elite and shown at the spring Art show at the Royal Academy.

Mr. Rodin has a charm, unsurpassed in the ways of seduction. His tormented childhood is masked with an obession for his art and his passion for women. The lines of desire to capture the essence of both become the driving force in his life. Men want to be like him, women want to be with him.

Henry Cavill, shown here is my inspiration for Mr. Rodin. What would you do if you got this look?

First, yowza! That pic is hot. Second I'm really looking forward to his story. I enjoyed his character alot in Cozette!

Kristina Cook/Kristi Astor said...

Oh, man....that pic!! I would become speechless....LOL!

Cecile said...

Barbara got it right "YOWZA". If I were to get that look... that is a come hilther look! And I surely would be coming forward (no pun intended lol!)

Looking forward to the story, especially considering what your inspiration was!

So many things . . .

I'd blush from my hairline to my toes.


I'd think he had something stuck in his throat.


I'd shyly look the other way like I do when the cover models come out at RT.


Amanda McIntyre said...

Oh, Im glad top hear that Barb! I 've had a number of folks say the same thing. ThMr Rodin was such an interesting character ! It will be fun to see what these women think about him!

Amaxing to me that this pic makes my temp rise and Cavill is fully clothed! LOL Whew*fanning self!

I admit my heart beat just a wee bit faster when I ran across this pic. There is a you tube of Cavills Dunhill mens cologne commercial--Sheesh that magnitism!

G, you are sooo gonnna have to meet some of the RT guys;) I'm biased to the guys who have been around awhile, because the majority are such gentleman.
And I love a man who is confident enough in himself that he doesnt have to flaunt it, you know?

Im thinking thats another thing that appeals to me about that "look"--no words, just the steady thrum of your heart against your ribs....



Amanda McIntyre said...

True dat, Cecile! Seriously, come hither...(no I wont say what Im thinking here LOL)
in my mind, I'm seeing the clothes just falling away, with out a word!

I have only one thing to say:

RAWR! ;)

Amanda McIntyre said...

I love it! RAWR! Indeed !!!


Cecile said...

Yea, clothing falling... and with that look - whatever else he wanted **Wink**! But you are right, there is definitely a magnitism about this picture that draws you in no matter what. If you are not, then you have no pulse! Even with clothes on, temps start rising and imaginations starts flaring up!
