"...a life spent reading-that is a good life." -Annie Dillard
Lovely! It all looks so cozy :)
What a sweet painting! Love it!
Thank you, Trish, Nadia and Lory!!
I love it! That was pretty much me as a child! Although I always had a hard time finding other kids who liked to read as much as I did.
Me, too. Luckily, my family are all readers, so it was very normal for me growing up to see my sisters curled up on the couch next to me reading...just like this picture. Thanks for commenting! :)
Not only the scene of children reading, but the fact that Vanessa Bell painted it!
That's what drew me to this picture, too; I knew Bell painted, but not that she was this talented!
That's the way I remember my childhood :). Perfect picture, perfect quotation.
Thanks! :) It's very reminiscent of my childhood, too.
That's a lovely picture, Lark! Reminds me of my younger self reading with my sister.
Those are some great memories to have!
In our family it was not uncommon that all of us were just sitting in the living room, all with our own book and we would just read for hours :-) So funny that so many people have the same kind of memories. I love you bookish art, as always!Kind regards,
Thank you! You know how much I love art, and I find myself drawn to these pictures of women, or girls, reading. :)
Reading is most definitely bliss. :-)
