Of Painting and Books

Norman Rockwell painting
 I have been painting for six hours today and have mostly finished an oil painting which I will share with you as soon as is finished. It's something slightly new for me. (After the oil painting still life I have recently completed but yet to take a photo of). I have discovered that audio books are great things to listen too while working on a picture. I generally much prefer to read a real book than an e-book or audio book, though it is pleasant to be read to I will admit. Anyway I can enjoy two of my favorite things at the same time this way! Books and painting! =) 

The Artists Triumph, by William Sydney Mount, Oil on wood, 1838

Watch this space for my new painting!
