Wow ! Well done Thomas. Both of those are fabulous and also new to me. Thanks a ton for those.

Oh I love the fact that you post nice big images on your blog! I can really sit back and devour these two Rackham paintings!

Eric said...

Just wonderful stuff.

Oh, to answer your question on Whirled: Yes, I'm still reading and enjoying. But I still can't comment over there for some reason.

Thank you for these. They are also new to me. I love them both, but in the top one the little fairies are extremely cute, and even though he didn't put a face on that tree, it looks like it could start moving and talking!

Mermaids has long been one of my favourite Rackham works and it always grieves me that I lent and lost the book I had it in. thanks for sharing

To lend and lose is a fate no book should have.
