Jane Eyre Fan? Here Are 3 Paintings You Can Download

Jane Eyre was probably the first book I really fell in love with. I remember that I was in a Jane Eyre bubble for a couple of days. Even reading it on my IPod while I was cycling somewhere.

I love the way it is written, so many beautiful sentences and scenes. Vivid things like: “”Good-night my -” He stopped, bit his lip, and abruptly left me.” but also thoughtful things like: “There is no happiness like that of being loved by your fellow creatures, and feeling that your presence is an addition to their comfort.”

Another good thing about the book is that you learn to love Jane and slowly learn to love Mr. Rochester too – just as Jane does.

This is a printable artwork based on the book 'Jane Eyre' by Charlotte Bronte titled 'Free as a Bird'. 

“I am no bird; and no net ensnares me: I am a free human being with an independent will.”

While I was in my bubble reading it for the first time I ended up making 3(!) paintings inspired by Jane Eyre. Looking back now, I realize this was my beginning of taking art seriously. I was surprised how well the paintings turned out and how they communicated what I wanted to say. And I so much enjoyed that I was able to put my thoughts and feelings on paper like this.

> Watch the TV mini series (best film adaption in my opinion)

An acrylic painting of Jane Eyre and Mr. Rochester walking hand in hand on the moon

“Adele heard him, and asked if she was to go to school “sans mademoiselle?” “Yes,” he replied, “absolutely sans mademoiselle; for I am to take mademoiselle to the moon, and there I shall seek a cave in one of the white valleys among the volcano-tops, and mademoiselle shall live with me there, and only me.”

This is a printable poster based on Charlotte Bronte's book 'Jane Eyre'. Is id based on this quote: "I had not intended to love him; the reader knows I had wrought hard to extirpate from my soul the germs of love there detected; and now, at the first renewed view of him, they spontaneously revived, great and strong! He made me love him without looking at me."

“I had not intended to love him; the reader knows I had wrought hard to extirpate from my soul the germs of love there detected; and now, at the first renewed view of him, they spontaneously revived, great and strong! He made me love him without looking at me.”
