Once again, it’s #WombatFriday!

Inspired by artist Dante Gabriel Rossetti’s passion for wombats, every Friday is Wombat Friday at Pre-Raphaelite Sisterhood. “The Wombat is a Joy, a Triumph, a Delight, a Madness!” ~ Dante Gabriel Rossetti

Earlier this week, I shared thoughts on Dante Gabriel Rossetti’s painting Proserpine and blogging about art as a serious endeavor.

Found Drowned is such an evocative piece.  I’ve written about it previously in The Bridge of Sighs.
