I shared a photo some time ago on my Facebook and Instagram of the reading corner in my art studio and decided it would be fun to paint after a friend suggested it. The art hanging on the walls is loosely from my own. The one above the chair is "Tahmoor's Table" which is actually hanging in the show in Colorado Springs right now (over May 1). The lamp was made by my oldest son using a piece of wood he had cut while working as a hot shot several years ago. My cat tipped it over once and broke it. I had it repaired because it is so special to me.

oil on canvas 20 x 24 inch

I finished this painting last month, but all of the titanium white took a while to dry.  This is taken from a scene in our home.  We have this cushion ottoman with a busy floral pattern that serves as a coffee table.  One evening I sketched the scene and right away felt like painting it.  The pattern was a lot busier than this at first, but I toned it down.  The book was originally Bob Dylan's autobiography, but I took liberties to change it to something more feminine.   The dog painting here is of an actual original sketch by David Lloyd  that I purchased years ago and the plant was my mother's.  I tried to be more loose here, but it didn't really go that way.  I am ok with that though.
