Day Twenty-Three - 30 Paintings in 30 Days- Absorbed

12x16 oil on canvas
Don't you miss reading? I remember huge chunks of my life being absorbed in reading. Weighty books, frivolous ones. Fiction and how-to. Biography and political, humor and spirituality. Nowadays I read for the book group we joined, and I've been grateful for the "assignment" that makes me read. This month we're reading Edith Warton's The House of Mirth.  It just arrived in the mail today, so I'm going to go get absorbed in what life was like for the fictional Lily Bart in turn-of-last-century New York.   Mmmmm.

This is amazing. Yes I love reading. It is still my passion, and I'm
sad to be nearly finishing a novel. It seems to take more concentration
now, but it is an essential pleasure for me -- like eating.

What a great painter you are!
