From a previous pinner: My favorite Aivazovsky painting. It has always made me think of the words by Elie Wiesel; "Night is purer than day; it is better for thinking and loving and dreaming. At night everything is more intense, more true" The Black Sea at night - Ivan Aivazovsky
Jessie Willcox Smith, "A Girl Observing a Spider Among Rose Bushes", illustration for "Dream Blocks" by Aileen Cleveland Higgins. Nooooo, get the spider web out of there . Get away from it, little girl .
