Hailing from the Netherlands, this artist is bringing a resurgence of Baroque-style painting to her work. Instead of paint though, the artist uses her camera to create sensual and feminine images that echo the renaissance period. Her name is Mariska Karto and through her art she expresses the depths of her own mind and being. As an artist she brings all the elements of natural story telling into her photography and in the process creates a work that even the old masters could have admired.

Like humor involving hot bods in tight pants, eh? Then you’re gonna love this itty bitty ditty I ran across on Facebook: Skinny Jeans on Vimeo on Vimeo I want ice water. More from the Oh Those Girls volume
It’s been a while since I did a post for the Oh Those Girls volume. So, being in a bit of a funk today anyway, this seemed like as good a time as any. I found Richie Kotzen’s edgy, young-Hagar-like, vocals in You Can’t Save Me to be just the “soothing balm” I needed. And…
The mind wasting events of the last few days also caused me to miss out on doing a second Sultry Saturday post. And I was so hoping to begin a new Ice Water tradition! So, continuing on with catching up with those reblogs (and adding fuel to the burning rage some of you might be…
