BEAST OF THE MONTH (JUNE)
Due date is March 6, 2018. Get in line now!
Okay, that's still 10 months away.
But in the meantime, I'm posting a Beast of the Month on this blog, sharing some of my favorite Beauty and the Beast images from the 260 intervening years since what we now think of as the classic version of the novel was published in France by Jeanne Marie Le Prince de Beaumont in 1757.
This month: feast your eyes on this gorgeous painting from contemporary African-American artist Thomas Blackshear!
This does not resemble my Beast, or my heroine, but I love, love, love the Klimt-like decorative element of the patterns and brushwork!
Seriously, could this be any more gorgeous?
