The name of the original artist for Lady of the Sea was Arthur Rackham, I don't know why the name escaped me before!
Posted by kdonahueus on June 23, 2010
A great illustrator Rackham was. I couldn't find "Lady of the Sea' but I did find this one you might like of his: http://galleria.thule-italia.com/Arte/rackham/rack6.jpg

Could not log on to the site you gave me, not sure why? sorry I have not responded sooner, my internet was down due to large storm in the area. A friend of mine gave me a scanner but it does not have the cord, I'll have to wait until I get down there to get it to scan in some photo's for you.
What was the title of the piece? I'll see if I can find it. I added a few new pieces, love to hear your opinion!

I enjoyed your interpretation of lady of the sea!
The lady of the Sea was inspired by Aesops fable the shipwrecked man and the sea...The man asks the lady of the sea why does she entice men to come out onto her beautiful water only to shipwreck them and she says blame not me but the sky above me who thrashes me into a state unknown to me.
The original artists name escapes me at the moment but I have made changes to his work, the face of the sea in the original was more monsterous and a few other changes.

It's great. The viewer takes a journey when viewing it. Great art, I feel, should take us some place that we relate to. The myth reminds me of "The Odyysey" and the sirens that draw sailors to the rocks, rough water and death. An inspiring piece.
There is nothing better than a great journey, I'm glad to see we can both inspire one another!
I have always had a passion for horses, I was a riding instructor for 20 years but I have injured my back and can no longer ride or teach as it has a bit of heavy lifting moving obstacles and such. I now turn to my art, I would say that I am fortunate to be able to enjoy my great passions in life.
I have always enjoyed mythology growing up, I have been considering for some time painting a Madusa and I would say your piece has inspired me. I just need to get a new relay for my kiln and finish a few other projects I have in the works.
I wish you the best in the contest, I think she's awesome!
If they only could get a horse to stay stil for a drawing session =)
I love their musculature and build. Sorry to hear about your back and riding. I never rode a horse, for fear of their great strength and kick! Like you now, I prefer to draw them then ride. Seeing that you were inspired by my Medusa, perhaps, I'll work a horse into my next piece: a knight or something. The Athena/Medusa came about during a figure drawing session (which I recommend btw) the model, a female which had a muscular fit physique, just screamed Athena!, So I added the spear, helmet and severed head. Hopefully you will enter a piece in the contest as well? You still have till the 16th of July.
If you give me an e-mail address I can send you some photo's to work from! send your address to firstname.lastname@example.org
. . . email sent . . . looking forward to your photos.

Love your work, I am partial to nudes!
Posted by kdonahueus on June 21, 2010
Yes, I can see that in your art. Drawing the nude is the best way to get a feel for form.
I would say you have a wonderful feel for the form!
