French Artist Jean-Gabriel Domergue

 Lately, I have been immersed in poetry, music and art! 
Below is a rambling I pinned yesterday...ENJOY!
 In my dreams
we dance,
whirl and spin.
Softly taking my arm
in and out
moving freely,
rain falls 
in our path 
it kicks under our feet
we drink
as we move
slipping over the water.
How you hold me,
pressing your face to mine, 
your hands are strong
and when you let me go, 
it is never for long.
Always loving,
Always coming back for me...
~ Olivia


Imagine my excitement when I stumbled upon this French painter! 
Ooohhh la la! Beautiful colors and glamour!
