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.
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.
The Soul of the Rose or My Sweet Rose
A Pre-Raphaelite lover.
I even cross-stitch Waterhouse images.
They take YEARS to complete (mainly due to my sporadic interest level and only working on them in the evenings).
Miranda — The Tempest
I’ve made this one:
And I’m currently working on this image:
Next on the list is this one:
Hylas and the Nymphs
I can’t remember if I’ve already done a post on Waterhouse…..so, if I have, apologies. Just bask in the pretty.
The Mermaid, 1901
I recently purchased this beautiful print from peachpatrol on etsy.
Located in Australia, there was a bit of a wait for the post to get it together and get this to me.
I was almost breathless with anticipation. I was so excited for it.
When it arrived last week, it surpassed ALL expectations.
SO SO SO amazingly beautiful in person! Lovely little extras included in the package.
I cannot wait to get this matted and framed.
Also: I will definitely be ordering more prints. I just have to choose.
I’m a bit of an art hoarder. I’m so grateful for prints–since my budget doesn’t allow for originals (yet).
We’re re-doing our living room, and I plan to pretty much have ALL the walls covered in art. You better believe this lovely lady will have a place of honor.
