Happy New Year!
We have come to New Year’s Eve and await the arrival of a new year – 2022. “Destiny” by John William Waterhouse is the last painting in my 2021 Art Calendar. I sense, within this beautiful and complex painting, a poignant farewell to a year of many events and happenings.
My 2022 Art Calendar will be unveiled on January 1, 2022. I look forward to the adventures ahead. Behind every artwork a story is waiting to be discovered.
“Waterhouse’s painting shows a beautiful woman raising a glass to her mouth in a farewell toast for the departing warriors. She appears lost in her thoughts as she stands in what appears to be a loggia, an Italian style outdoor room or corridor with views out to a marshy area. An open book sits on a desk in front of her.” John William Waterhouse
