Lady of the Lake


Lady of the Lake
16 X 20 inches
Oil on canvas.

This is the latest in my series of paintings called, Ladies of Legend and Literature.

I finished this a couple of weeks ago, and was not sure how I felt about it. I hung it on the wall and have lived with it for awhile, and now like it quite a bit. You know how it is, many of us are never completely satisfied with our work.

The Lady of the Lake is the name of several related characters who play parts in the Arthurian legend. These characters' roles include giving King Arthur his sword Excalibur, enchanting Merlin, and raising Lancelot after the death of his father. Different writers and copyists give her name variously as Nimue, Viviane, Elaine, Niniane, Nivian, Nyneve, Nimueh and other variations. (Wikipedia)
