When I decided to start adding art to posts, it was originally because I wanted to be blog- and Facebook-friendly (thumbnails!) while using stuff that is totally in the public domain. Since then I’ve been getting a lot of questions about where it all comes from.
Pretty much one place: Wikimedia Commons.
It’s a treasure trove of basically everything amazing that has ever been painted. Warning: Clicking around and going hunting for art can result in many lost afternoons.
There you have it!
