she hath a mark like a violet


its here its here! it is a print from *undine*
"she hath a mark like a violet between her shoulders
and another like it on the instep of her left foot"
i hung it right above my chair.

i would say to the many many over-many incomprehensible number
of bertaldas ive had in my life, that i will always love you all...
i forgive you all... and i will always feed you oranges,
and let you take what you will.
i have what i need. its inside of me ♥

Oh, how thrilling! This Rackham's piece of art is very beautiful - there's so much to be seen in it. What a treasure! It seems to have reached its right place - the house of someone who will really love it. You'll feel its magic every time you sit on your chair. You sound so happy!!

Such a Wondrous Place this Faery Space said...

Yes, Undine makes me think of Blossoms and tears and salt water... for blossoms and petals and tears and sea spray can land on the thorniest of things and they are unharmed... I am glad you are filled up dear, I am too. To see art such as Rackham's and Warwick Goble's is like breathing for me and I am sooo happy you have this beautiful print. So blessed. Oh, and good girl for not letting the sour pusses make you pucker! Remember what the good knight says in the story, "My Strength is as the Strength of ten because my heart is pure." Lots of wishes of peace, calm, and creation to you friend. Blessings and light, Amy

I love Undine! I managed to make most of my essay about mermaids on just Undine, rather than divided between 4 texts. Your house looks really comfy and calm. I'm jealous!

Exquisite.
Rackham was such a genius. I especially love the little girl in the background. On a tapestry, maybe?

Valerianna said...

Great!, Like Pamela, I too, am drawn to that little girl in the background - curious and wanting to follow her off to wherever she is.....

congrats! and I bet your kitties like those sheepskins as much as you!

Karolina said...

This is very beautiful! I wish I could make something like that in my school, I'm not sure it would pass through their straight modern art thinking. I long for artworks like that so thank you!

Lulu said...
