wildly romantic

A snippet of a painting in progress that is slowly being born from my sketch in Monday’s post.

And from yesterday’s photo of the tree-adorned hallway is the outside of the cottage, photo taken from an insanely quaint curved bridge made of fieldstone…

A victorian riverside cottage that was redone in the 1930’s (two amazing aesthetic eras in my opinion!)
that we were lucky enough to step foot in! Crazy beautiful!

  1. Ooooh. Have you seen Gosford Park? It’s another example of the stunning lushness of the 1930’s (at least, for the aristocratic class; although the wonderful thing about that movie is that you find yourself luxuriating in little aesthetic details in the servants’ scenes as well).

  2. So beautiful, no doubt this will be a most powerful painting. What skill you have!
    And I have no doubt that you will have a beautiful, winsome and utterly gorgeous daughter some day! What a fun mommy you will be 🙂

  3. That is a gorgeous portrait `her skin is so luminous! And that house is so beautiful..what a dream it must be to live there..how could you not be happy there! Hope the new year is treating you well so far:)

  4. She is beautiful! She has the face of a Bronte heroine.

    I am also enchanted by the lonely cottage. It wakens the imagination, both the inside and outside. Lovely. 🙂
