There's something about the beginning of the holidays that always has a romantic feel it, so this Pre-Raphaelite version of The Annunciation by John William Waterhouse, felt like a good inspiration for all the holiday style choices cropping up as quickly as fall ended. With its rich colors and precise classical spacing, this sweet rendition holds a place in the realm of holiday art as well as captures the Romantic style of the early 1900s.
Gabriel's ethereal lavender and deep purples are one end of the spectrum, inviting a bit of sparkle and whimsy...
On the other end of the spectrum is Mary's dramatic cobalt ensemble with red accents.
