Artistic Inspiration ... John William Waterhouse

Here's a great painter; John William Waterhouse (1849-1917).  I LOVE his paintings. Tales of mermaids and ladies; Ophelia and the Lady of Shallot all come alive next to mythical creatures. Gorgeous flowers and flowing gowns attached to beautiful women make the images complete.

If you are a photographer, check out the fluid poses. Look at the story lines. It's about the wind and the flowers and the movement. Mmmm, I can feel the breeze now...

Here's a great website for you to learn more about Waterhouse.
