"I want so badly to believe..."

[Painting: Ariadne in Naxos by Evelyn De Morgan]

Wow, this image leaves me wondering what this woman's story is. Did she come from the sea? Did someone die? Did she get jilted?

She is so despondently lovely.

Silly me--I didn't even read the title at the bottom of the painting because I was so enamoured of the painting itself.

Now that I know who she is, I am even more in love with her portrait.

Sharon, do not feel bad! I only added the link and info AFTER your comment where you asked who she was. :)

I am in love with her too.
