Inspiration


My friend Janet gave me this book Water for Elephants
to read a little while ago. Recently while painting this idea came up and I started to remember a couple of scenes in the book. It really is a wonderful book and the imagery that came to mind was fantastic! I highly recommend it.

Love this painting. Your work is wonderful.

I read "Water for Elephants" this year too. The author did some incredible research for it, which I always enjoy. I'm reading "People of the Book" by Geraldine Brooks now, another great read. Her last one, "March," was awarded the Pulitzer.

Thanks Anne,
I'll have to look up those books. I love to read and am always looking for suggestions for a good read.
