"There's rosemary, that's for remembrance; pray, love, remember: and there is pansies, that's for thoughts."
Ophelia is traditionally painted either just before or sometime after she has drowned in a river, mad with grief over the sudden coldness of her beloved Hamlet and the death of her father. I've been wanting to paint her floating underwater for sometime, her face still with flush with the bloom of youth and beauty, but no longer in possession of it.
I'm still deciding whether this piece is actually done or if there is some tweaking left to do. Feel free to share your thoughts on the matter in the comments!
