I've always like visiting Oxford. So many inspiring sights to see!
Come along with me as I show you what caught my eye. :)
I do like a nice doorway and this one has exceptional decoration don't you think?
Such beautifully kept gardens in the colleges. I like that lamp!
Now step inside the Ashmoleon with me as I show you some treats...
This is a close-up of the right hand side of the painting, 'The Triumph of Chastity'. If you like, you can see the whole painting here
I do like the shape of this ship! Below are the details of this painting.
This one is St Michael Subduing Satan and Weighing the Souls of the Dead and is attributed to the artist Lelio Orsi 1508/11 - 1587. Bit of a gruesome image but fascinating detail. Lovely frame too!
I love the unusual frame of this one and her very expressive hands. Below you can read the details about the image.
So now on to the Preraphaelite gallery!...
The clarity of this one is stunning. The photo doesn't do it justice so you'll have to take my word for it!
I'm afraid I had 'museum feet' and had to leave wanting to see more but that's a good thing isn't it? More to look forward to again one day! :)
Before I go, let me show you the Smurf hats I'm making...
Ok, they're not Smurf hats. Your guesses as to what they might be would be fun! ;)
