  1. I've loved that painting since I first saw it a few years ago. She's so absorbed in that book!

    1. It makes you wonder what she's reading, just like Lisa said. But it's a great painting; I love it, too.

  2. What a beautiful picture! I wonder what she is reading. I did think though that I could never have worn a dress like that, I would have spilled things on it from top to bottom!

    1. Yeah, white is a dangerous color to wear. But it makes for great art!
