I think we all could stand to use more SAT words.
The blogosphere is incredible. I was lucky enough to have my artwork found by someone across the world in Noosa, Australia, who used my painting, "Your Voice Was Smooth; Like Water Running Over Rocks" to illustrate her word of the week, "Mellifluous. Thanks, Felicity, for sharing my artwork on your lovely blog and also for expanding my vocabulary.
[adj.] flowing, like honey.
Sweet or smooth, generally used to describe a person's voice, tone or writing style.
From the latin mellifluus ["flowing like honey"], from mel [honey] + fluo [flow].
Today's word is one of my favourite, not only for the musicality as I say it out loud, but also because I love what it describes. The artwork I've chosen to illustrate this word is by Gina Marie Dunn and is titled 'Your Voice was Smooth; Like Water Running Over Rocks' which evokes dulcet and mellifluous tones in my mind."
This painting is 24" x 36" x 1.5". This is one of my favorite sizes to work with. It is available for purchase, contact me for details.
