Art & Myth

There are so many wonderful artists and storytellers weaving their magic on the web these days that it would be next to impossible to cover all of them in one post. So here are a few of my favorites . . .

Have a great weekend!

Undine, John William Waterhouse

Katherine Langrish’s ~ Seven Miles of Steel Thistles blog ~ serves up a bountiful feast of faery lore and literature, as well as a wonderful post on water folklore.

Ellen Terry as Lady Macbeth, John Singer Sargent, 1889

The Victorian actress Ellen Terry wore a dress made of iridescent beetle wings when she portrayed the Lady Macbeth at London’s Lyceum Theatre in 1888. The famous emerald and sea green beetle wing dress has now been restored and returned to its home, Smallhythe place in Kent. Smallhythe Place was the home of the Victorian actress from 1899 to 1928.

Be sure to check out Virginia Lee’s Painting, Three Hares Tor, on her lovely art blog. The triple hare motif has always been one of my favorites. Love it!

Over at the website of The Company of the Green Man Blog, you will find all kinds of information, images and folklore about the green man.

Sue Blackwell ~ an extremely talented artist with a unique vision. Step into the realm of fairy tales and folklore  and explore the magic she creates with her series of book-sculpture. Breathtakingly beautiful!

“If you take myth and folklore, and these things that speak in symbols, they can be interpreted in so many ways that although the actual image is clear enough, the interpretation is infinitely blurred, a sort of enormous rainbow of every possible color you could imagine.”  ~ Diana Wynne Jones

“Everyday Goddessing  is about sharing magical techniques and sacred wisdom with other beautiful Goddess women. I believe that within every woman there is a goddess, a wise woman, beautiful, creative, powerful, with a deep soul, and that everything we need and are looking for is already inside  each of us.” – Rose Arizmendi
