A Vocation – by William A. Bouguereau

The definition of vocation is a strong feeling of suitability for a particular career or occupation.

A prolific painter, Bouguereau himself has painted over 800 paintings in his lifetime. He is considered the master when it comes to depicting the human body. He is particularly famous for his beautiful hands and feet. I adore the way he had romanticized his subjects, painting them in the best possible way. This is quintessential romantic realism.

This beautiful painting adorns my wall. I feel as though I can gaze into this young artist’s eyes forever. It encapsulates the artist’s focus in a sublime way. Her resolve helps fortify my author’s resolve, her beauty nourishes my soul, inspiring me to continue doing my best writing.

I hope you enjoy gazing at her, too.
