Tell me what you think! I was searching for a painting to use - I was pretty much at my wits end! - then I thought "Yeah. . . I'll try this one, just to see what it looks like. . . " -- I think it looks pretty good, myself! But let me know what you think of it!
The painting I chose - Miranda - The Tempest by John William Waterhouse, is a picture that has been very special to me for a long time. A few years ago, the calendar hanging in our lounge/dining/school-room featured artworks by popular 19th century painters - mostly Impressionists. One masterpiece for each month of the year. They were all very beautiful, but there was this one painting that particularly captured my imagination, and it was the same one which you now see at the top of my blog. This was before I knew who John William Waterhouse was, and before I had heard of Shakespeare's A Midsummer Night's Dream - and yet this beautiful painting held me enraptured.
So, it seemed fitting that it should now feature as a part of my place in cyberspace!
