Claude Lorrain, Apollo and the Muses on Mount Helicon, 1680
From the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston:
Born in the Lorraine region of France, Claude settled early in Italy and spent most of his life painting the countryside around Rome, with its many associations to the ancient world. This painting, done when he was eighty-two years old, represents Apollo, god of poetry and music, surrounded by the nine Muses, goddesses of the creative arts. At the upper right is the winged horse Pegasus, who has kicked a rock to release the spring that is the source of artistic inspiration. Although most of Claude’s paintings included biblical or classical themes, their true subject was the light, atmosphere, and poetic mood of the natural world.

If she was prepared to wear underwear with this level of control all day what would she require of him? He could only begin to think of the regime that she would initiate for him. But he knew he couldn’t resist. She pointed to a spot on the floor just in front of her. He found himself just inches away from her love lips. He might as well have been in another country. As she slowly outlined what life would be like for him in the months ahead his cock grew in stiffness. She touched it for a second with her shoe and then she left him to his chores.
