I painted this piece because I loved how the flat side of each of the bookends made a very interesting surface to paint. I added a dark background to pick up interesting reflections and make the piece look more classical. This piece is oil on archival gessoboard, so framing is optional.

The day I walked into my first painting class changed the way I see the world. I love to study the shapes, colors, and light around me. I am a diligent student constantly trying to expand my understanding of different techniques in oil and watercolor. I often set up lessons for myself and don’t move for hours once I get started on a piece. Painting is my reward.
