Favorite artwork (idea shamelessly stolen from Allie firelion)

Jim Brandenburg's Autumn Passing.
I have that one framed and hanging on my wall. I love the contrast of the fall leaves and the snow.

Pretty much all the landscapes by Ansel Adams.
Allie, check out this one.
There's just something about b&w landscapes. They look like they're from a dream.

Cydney Congers' Cat Fish.
Just found that one today. Isn't it adorable?

Theophile Alexandre Steinlen's Chat Noir.
I've seen several versions of that, including a clock, in lots of catalogs, but the original is always the best.

McEnery's Cat Nap II.
Different versions of this one everywhere too, but like I said, nothing beats the original.

Richard Watherwax's Fat Cat Capsizing.
Just plain hilarious.

Brassai's Les Escaliers de Montmartre.
I wanted this even before I saw Moulin Rouge.

Edward Holland's Vanishing Point.
You just want to follow the path forever.

Edmund Blair Leighton's The Accolade, God Speed (aka A Lady's Favour), A King and a Beggar Maid, and A Favour.
Medieval and Regency Era knights and ladies. Gotta love 'em.

Lord Frederic Leighton's Flaming June.
What can I say, what attracted me first was the color of the dress. Peach rules!

John William Waterhouse's Soul of the Rose (aka My Sweet Rose) and Boreas.
The first one reminds me of Beauty and the Beast, while the second one is very flowing. I love Ancient Greek myths.

Edward Robert Hughes' Midsummer Eve.
Is there a fantasy lover that doesn't want this painting?
