Jour de tempete

I stumbled upon this portrait (…) by Giovanni Boldini purely by chance while looking for stuff on Google images. I only saw the miniature at first and mistook the right end of the coat/dress for a foamy wave, and thought it was a stormy beach scene. Made me think of Ariel immediately ! I clicked on the pic and realized it was completely different though. But... why not ? :) Loved the flow of the pose and Edwardian feel. Just added the iconic wave !

Ariel looks very wistful here. Maybe Eric turned out to be a douche after all (or does he have smelly feet ?) and now she longs to go back to the sea. Don't give up everything to follow a pretty boy you just met, I guess :D No worries though, daddy got yo back.

I love those kinds of dresses, though they seem like they would be very uncomfortable. Or you could only move your arms in a few ways. I'm not sure, but this portrait is quite gorgeous! <3 

I love the design you put into the dress.

I have faith in their relationship...but everyone has their days when they need to get away and be alone. I think that's what's going on here.
