May’s Fantasy Art Inspiration

A Water Baby by Henry James Draper c.1900

Once a month, I post a favorite fantasy painting or drawing. I chose this month’s selection with Mother’s Day in mind. Is the young woman discovering the baby in the shell, or is she laying her own child down for a nap?

Happy Mother’s Day!

March’s Fantasy Art Inspiration

"Blondine Threw Her Arms Around Him" by Virginia Frances Sterrett (1919-1920)

Once a month, I post a favorite fantasy painting or drawing. Let me know if you would like me to feature your artwork in a future month! I will always give you credit for your work.

This month I’m featuring an illustration by Virginia Frances Sterrett, originally appearing in Comptesse de Ségur’s Old French Fairy Tales. Sterrett was commissioned to illustrate this collection when she was only 19. She died at age 31. The illustration above accompanies the tale “Blondine, Bonne-Biche, and Beau Mignon.”
