Art: The Lady of Shalott by Artist Sara Field
Painted as my August ebay Nibblefest entry with the theme being 'illustrate a story or a poem'. I chose The Lady of Shalott

In the stormy east-wind straining, The pale yellow woods were waning, The broad stream in his banks complaining. Heavily the low sky raining Over tower'd Camelot; Down she came and found a boat Beneath a willow left afloat, And around about the prow she wrote The Lady of Shalott.

And down the river's dim expanse Like some bold seer in a trance, Seeing all his own mischance -- With a glassy countenance Did she look to Camelot. And at the closing of the day She loosed the chain, and down she lay; The broad stream bore her far away, The Lady of Shalott.

~~from Alfred Lord Tennyson's poem
