I love to read. It takes me to places that I would never get to see. I get to visit new time periods. Meet people I could never otherwise meet. And see magical creatures. I can fight with pirates, or save a king. I can fly on a dragon, or talk to a fairy. Books can make you cry, laugh or tickle your imagination. Books ARE magic.
Thats what I thought of while painting this piece. I took great pleasure in thinking of the countless hours I've spent reading wonderful books. I tried to show the books coming alive for the little girl, I hope it looks like it. This painting just flowed from my mind. I loved every minute!
