John Waterhouse












I absolutely love these paintings. So, I thought I would share them with you. They are all by John Waterhouse (1849–1917).
I would love to make costumes of some of these! Beautiful!

So beautiful Margie! Wouldn't it be fun to make the costumes and do a photo shoot and pose like the paintings. Maybe we could go to the Metolious and get some pretty shots. :)

Love these sis!

Waterhouse is my favorite pre-raphaelite artist - absolutely amazing. When I get my own house (no pun intended ;) I'm going to have his artwork all over the place! :)
