Looky Here!




Join Us for Reading Week

Reading by Lamplight (Twilight: Interior) George Clausen

Our Weekly Tidbit
We often think of subject matter we might hook in very limited ways.
Look here for the astounding variety of the concept of women reading as an example.
It seems better with friends as everything does... I hope you will join our reading week.
Well this looks familiar! How wonderful to see this idea I used in this painting!
The same idea with large books!
Here is a vintage sampling you might enjoy also.
Thing I'm telling you this week:

If you only read the books that everyone else is reading, you can only think what everyone else is thinking.

–Haruki Murakami

The book you don’t read won’t help.

–Jim Rohn

What I like LOVE today


What I read and heard:


Great Colour Combos


Inspiration for Rugs 

This book is a wonderful one to expand our ideas about colours that "go " together. It can really throw wide the gates of color planning for you!
