Paige Volunteers At The Library, oil on canvas, 10"x12". Sold.

Looks like Paige is back!  I don't recall my local library looking this cute, but it's been a while since I've popped by.  Actually to be truthful, I'm not allowed to go.  Not because of crazy overdue fees which is often the case, but ever since I married a book seller there's been this funny unspoken anti-library vibe going on in the house.  It's the 'L' word. The true culprits are my parents though and John catches them every time.  He can walk into their house and immediately detect a library book in the room.  My parents live in fear of being caught and run around hiding their library books. It's a bit of a conundrum.  I mean, do you really want to own every single book that you read?  I can say for a fact that John sure does.

Oh, and I should mention that I'm featured in a lovely interview over at Stephanie Levy's Artists Who Blog series.  She's a sweetheart and a brilliant artist too.  Thanks Stephanie!

  1. That is a great painting as I am a library clerk. I do have my own library at home but there are so many books that I cannot afford to buy so borrowing them for months at a time is a good thing. I hear the same comment every day,’What would we do without libraries?’

    Hi there! I stumbled on your paintings/site completely by accident – and I must say – I completely ADORE your paintings! You do such wonderful work – and I love everything about your paintings: the texture, the rich, bright, and warm colors – and of course, the subjects themselves!

    This painting – if I’d have seen it sooner – I would have bought in a heartbeat. It’s been my dream (my vocation) to be a librarian (am working on it – I’ve worked in libraries for 10 years) and my mother has been a small town elementary school librarian for almost 25 years (my inspiration!) – this painting is priceless! I hope you will think about doing more library paintings – they capture the fun library spirit completely!!!! You do an amazing job!

    Take care,
    Katrina Hanson
