More Beautiful Art

School in all varieties, including that of homeschoolers, is just around the corner. This photo-looking piece of art entitled: The Country Schoolhouse is that of Maxfield Parrish. You must click on the title to see this piece enlarged. This hardly does it justice; it is truly beautiful! When I was in my teens a neighbor whom I use to babysit for introduced me to Parrish's artwork. I was hooked as far as a more contemporary artist was concerned. I love his technique; the depth and rich colors. Parrish is one of my favorites, as well as John William Waterhouse. His Saint Cecilia is just exquisite. To also see it enlarged, click on the title.
