A Favorite

Having spent a weekend doing….well, not too much of anything (other than watching the hubby lose himself in the new “Wolfenstein” PC game—whoa, boy, that game is INTENSE), there’s not really a good picture recap to share.  There was a little gardening, a massively horrible headache, some sparkly-pink nail polish, and…..that was about it.

So, instead, I’ll share my #1 All.-Time-Favorite artist, John William Waterhouse.

St Eulalia, 1885

I don’t recall when I first saw a Waterhouse image.

Ophelia,  1889

But I can say there’s just something I really love about the beauty in every single painting.

The Crystal Ball, 1902

I guess I’m a romantic at heart.

I even cross-stitch Waterhouse images.

The Shrine 1895

They take YEARS to complete (mainly due to my sporadic interest level and only working on them in the evenings).

And I’m currently working on this image:

Next on the list is this one:

I can’t remember if I’ve already done a post on Waterhouse…..so, if I have, apologies.  Just bask in the pretty.
