Art-wise, I love the classical (anywhere from the 15th to 20th century). When not making cute little cartoony characters, I am getting in the habit of copying the masters. I missed out on this practice in art school because, I took commercial art.

II had time today to seek out some inspiration and, lucky me, I found some. In the form of Frank Cadogan Cowper. I had never heard of the fellow until I stumbled on his painting, "Vanity." OMG... just beautiful!

This painting is reminiscent of the work of Bougereau (an all time fav)
 was Cowper's diploma work for the Royal Academy.
