The Lady of Shalott  There she weaves by night and day    A magic web with colours gay.    She has heard a whisper say,    A curse is on her if she stay        To look down to Camelot.    She knows not what the curse may be,    And so she weaveth steadily,    And little other care heat she,        The Lady of Shalott.

Ophelia, 1894, by John Waterhouse.  I love Waterhouse's paintings - many are based on classic tales and legends and all are just gorgeous!

John William Waterhouse   I have this hanging in my Lounge room.  The original is in Adelaide's main Gallery and it lifesize.  It simply beautiful.  These are my favourite colours as well.

Pandora by John William Waterhouse. The deterioration of the physical paint adds a layer of complexity as the dark background contrasts with the gold of the chest and the porcelain skin of Pandora in the foreground.

John William Waterhouse - Psyche (1903).  Another Waterhouse favorite of mine.  Curiosity...the temptation to peek always takes over before I can stop it...
