So yes, for your next show, I suggest a nymph series. None of this current Barbie crap, which is lame *and* embarrassing. You can go with the famous nymphs or create your own. I was recently much taken with https://tinyurl.com/yc54dvxj , a nymph nursing her foot after being stung by a scorpion.

It's a fine idea. I have a drawing for Diana and Actaeon that I might have to get to first.

That story, of course, includes Diana's nymphs.

Wordsworth? Do people still know who that is? I have an idea--call it Sappho and see what happens.

They do, here and there! I actually really like the idea of Scholar being a portrait of Sappho reincarnated.

And, for your next trick, you could do one of the name nymphs. I miss nymphs.

Scholar is too impersonal. Sappho is much more energizing, not to mention provocative. I'm not sure why that came into my head, but it came from the picture.
