The Art of Reading...

Michael Ancher -- A Young Girl Reading, Maren Sofie Olsen, 1885
"To acquire the habit of reading is to construct for yourself 
a refuge from almost all the miseries of life."
--W. Somerset Maugham

    1. I have a bunch of quotes and a bunch of artwork that I like and I try to match them up. I'm glad you enjoy them. They're one of my favorite posts to do.
