Building an arc.

Oh MAN, I can't believe I forgot the painting below when I wrote this post, trying to compile a list of my longtime favorite paintings... I absolutely adore this painting, and could linger in front of it for hours. Lucky for me, it's only 100 miles away from my adoring eyes, at the Met up in NYC:

Joan of Arc, oil on canvas, 1879, 100" x 110", by Jules Bastien-Lepage 

Mmmmm. I love those naturalist painters, yessir I do.
