  1. Hi R.A.! You know, I've always loved this painting? There's such a haunting feel to it, and yet the innocent face brings a sweetness quality as well. Thank you for posting this. So much inspiration from just one artist. :)

    And by the way, I'm far from being a great artist! Just a tiny grain of sand in the desert... :)

  2. That's what I've always thought about Burne-Jones' art! It's so haunting, but sweet at the same time. :)

    Well, I think you are an amazing grain of sand!
