  "Because it is almost impossible to select one favorite, I decided on one I'd miss for the smile and delight it gives me. William Bouguereau's Nymphs and Satyr is my choice. It delights in the lovely flesh of the nymphs and the overwhelmed look in the satyr's face. It's just fun!"

"It is the first work of art that made my eyes bug out. I was seven at the time."
