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?
