Came across
Jan De Vliegher's incredibly beautiful paintings while browsing the ever-inspiring Dear Ada.

The wonderfully talented and prolific De Vliegher paints an array of subjects and topics, including statues, landscape, the sea, still life, and even glass, but it's his breathtaking renderings of luxurious interiors that are most captivating . . .

Pretty! Puts me in mind of the lead character from Brideshead Revisited. How he'd go paint the rooms of great houses.
