I pin Mucha all the time, but never can get enough, especially of this picture. Loved it since I was a little.

Quoted "This is a new design style artwork called Naiad. The border was inspired by the work of the wonderful Art Nouveau artist Mucha. In Greek mythology the Naiads were a type of nymph (female spirit) who presided over fountains, wells, springs, streams, brooks and other bodies of fresh water. I have combined this myth with a forest fairy and the resulting character is in the painting. I hope you like it." - Anne Stokes -

Mucha's distinctive Art Nouveau posters and advertisements are notable for their creative use of color palettes, intricate gilding, and lettering.
