Assumption of the Virgin




This beautiful Renaissance fresco (ceiling painting) is by Antonio Corregio. It depicts the Virgin Mary being lifted upwards amidst a vortex of musical angels. I just think that this painting is magical, painted upon the inside of the dome of Parma Cathedral in Italy, the swirling vortex draws the viewer into the composition, as opposed to one looking in upon the scene as though through a window as so many other interpretations of the Assumption do. The colours also, are majestic. The bright golden light at the summit of the dome is a focal point, to which all movement in the scene is leading. By all accounts, re-printed images of this work do not do it justice. I find the pictures of it beautiful, imagine what it would be like in the flesh...

Every girls fantasy

To any girl reading this, I refuse to believe that you haven't as some point fantasised about what your wedding day will be like, or at the very least envisioned what you shall be wearing. Well this picture, pretty much sums up my plan at the moment. Beach, sea, long hair, lots of lace and not an awful lot else.

Birds of a feather

Coming to realize that I have a major weakness for anything cream and fluffy- chuck some see through netting in and I'm a gonner

Some things we grow out of, infatuation is one of them. Love on the other hand lasts, and my love for this mans work ain't going nowhere.
