No time for reading?

Why not sketch some books instead …


Books “cited”:
1. Marguerite Duras: Elskeren (L’Amant)
2. Karen Blixen: Babettes gjestebud (Babette’s Feast )
3. Marilynne Robinson: Home
4. Ian McEwan: Solar
5. Michael Glover: Great Works: Encounters with Art
6. Julia Cameron: The Complete Artist’s Way: Creativity as a Spiritual Practice

Michael Glover’s book is the newest in the heap, I have just read it – & I love it – Great Works: Encounters with Art is ekphrasis in praxis

This fully illustrated book offers a highly enjoyable and intelligently-written tour through art history, with the renowned art critic and poet Michael Glover.

    Wow! That’s stunning, Sigrun! The fold in the page gives it a three-dimensional, book-within-a-book perspective that’s slightly surreal. I wish I could paint…

      Thank you, Laura! Much too kind.
      But you have to give painting a go if you want to. I’m having so much fun with colours these days!

        Yes, I see that! I like the photos taken mid-composition, and those showing the background sketches… really interesting to have that insight into the process! Enjoy!

    Very amusing – why not indeed? And you honored those books! (I’m a big Marilyn Robinson fan).
