Welcome! Hope you see some artwork that pleases you, if not now, maybe next time…

Books, books and books.

For those who don’t know..we are temporarily living in the barn , while we are restoring the main house. We have been here for already about 3 years..and yes, it does take that long to restore a house if you do everything yourself. In the meantime, in the barn, we a have everything we need to be comfy. That includes books. Many books.For the time, they are stacked on make-do shelves. Even if they were stacked on beautiful custom made shemlves, it wouldn’t look any better than it does now. somehow we are unable to keep bookshelves neat. It is just how it is.

  1. Ronelle ..Nancy sent me a new book today and I was going to try and paint where some of my cookbooks are..we had to leave..but this is the inspiration I needed..
    It might be Stillman and Birn! I am running to check..what a coincidence..she’s so lovely..we don’t live across from each other anymore..but we think of each other every day..:)

    • Enjoyu your S&B..the advantage of spiral is that they really lie nice and flat for painting…a bit difficult to scan, but I like seeing sprials on the scanned image too…

  6. I much prefer the eclectic type of shelving.Unless you have a “proper” library;but even then, I think I’d add other bits and pieces.Habit of a lifetime, I suppose…

    • Diaanne…eclectic works for me…in any case up until that point I can find what I am looking for!

  7. I love books, and I love the messiness of your painting style. It is so liberating and freeing, it makes me want to get painting! Thanks for sharing.
