Elven Inspiration: John William Waterhouse

the-mystic-wood-1914-17

I find inspiration everywhere, music, mythology.  I can see hundreds of pictures of one person and then stumble on one in which he’s looking at the camera a certain way and a story will leap forward from my subconscious mind for no obvious reason.  It just happens.   http://www.johnwilliamwaterhouse.net/

The art of John William Waterhouse has inspired me for many years.  In fact, the one to the left was one of the original inspirations for Ophelia, the heroine of my previously ePubbed stories which I am now preparing for Indie Pub.  I think it’s the red hair and the mythological feel of so much of his work.  Pop over to his site and check it out.
