beauty like hers is genius.

the long flowing red hair. the eyes full of passion. the red luscious lips. dante gabriel rossetti paints the most breathtaking beauties.  he uses rich jewel tones to create highly stylized images of women as ethereal goddesses, mythical sirens, and femme fatales.  i love how passionately he paints his women–they are so full of emotion.
