The next Lacebook installment is my pages for Karen, in Alaska. Karen's theme is the artwork of pre-Raphaelite painter John William Waterhouse. There are so many Waterhouse works of art to love - I truly enjoyed the research!
I chose his well-loved painting, "Gathering Flowers," for these lacebook pages, and I thought the image paired perfectly with Robert Herrick's early 1600's poem, "Gather Ye Rosebuds." I included a pen nib because Herrick would, of course, have written that poem with an ink pot and pen nib.
Where would we be without the passion and ideals of artists, wherever that may take us?
