Stretch your back (think Waterhouse here).

John William Waterhouse

1916

Or maybe Millais

Sir John Everett Millais

1851

Of course this is how I look when I’m working; young, thin, sexy, wearing a beautiful medieval dress, in a castle, waiting for my Knight.
I was born in the wrong age - I’ve known that since I was about 5yrs old.

With 79 hours of work to date the end is in sight, it should all get put together on Sunday and the courier is booked for Monday to arrive in London on Tuesday morning.

I love a deadline.

Oh and I must tell you that I’ve been listening to the British History Podcast for the last few days. 
The British History Podcast
Its free, fantastic and informative. 

So far the Romans have been and gone and I’m into the Dark Ages. The podcast is one of the best (if not the best) on history that I’ve listened too. 
This guy can tell a story.

  1. Looking good. I absolutely love the images. Why have I never seen them before? It proves even being beautiful and making thins has always been a chore! I am glad those painters recognised it - even if it was the line and sensualness they were recognising.

    thanks for the heads up about the podcast. sounds like something I would enjoy. I will look it out for my next too close to the deadline project!
