Judging A Book

16x12 oil on panel - sold

We had a morning that felt like this today - but its warmed up quite a bit and I had to take off my trench coat and roll up my sleeves.

I admit to owning and loving my e-reader, but there is still nothing quite so nice as browsing bookshelves. Its not unlike looking at art. The covers and titles promise us an escape, a learning experience and commentary on the human experience.

Look the subject matter and it is so well done. I love wondering though the library or a bookstore, too much to read and not enought time.

It is a wonderful painting, Robin. Browsing for books is one of my favorite past-times.
