i stumbled across this image of an old painting on pinterest months ago
and haven't been able to stop thinking about it since.
it is delicate and lovely, yet so purposeful and elegant.
i love it.

i have come across the image on several random bouts of social media since then
and that's how i knew that it was something special.

so much so that i customized a case-mate for my phone
with a high resolution image of the painting
(thank you to fieldguided for the inspiration).

i hope it is as lovely as i am imagining in my mind.

i have always been a very visual person and find that sometimes images just linger in my mind.
even if seeing it the first time didn't exactly astound me.
i will never forget the pink-saturated print of a mother rocking her daughter that hung in the hallway of my house as a child...
or the claude monet that i dreamed about long before i knew who monet actually was.

maybe this is why i am such a sucker for pretty packaging and book covers...
