Craig mentioned black swans tonight over dinner (cannot remember why) and I have been pondering for some time a painting called "blank's (insert name) New Day Rising."
The black swan came right to me. I could see it so clearly in my mind.
So, researching tonight, Craig found a really amazing painting by late 19th century Belgian symbolist painter Leon Frederic. I have never heard of him, but am thrilled to stumble upon his work. He was around sort of at the height of Impressionism, so his style is weird for the time. He just did his thing. I love when artists do their thing.
