"...a life spent reading-that is a good life." -Annie Dillard
This is a lovely painting! I love the dreamy look in her eyes - I'm sure I look like that when I lift my eyes from a book I'm all caught up in. And, of course, Austen is on point!
Love that painting; and a BIG yes to that quote, too!
That's so gorgeous. I wonder why so many brilliant artists are not as well known as the really famous ones we're all familiar with. It's such a shame.
That's a beautiful painting. It reminds me a lot of the type of painting my wife has chosen to hang over the years...lots of children from that era, etc. My favorite paintings are always those that make me tell myself some kind of story about what I see.
Tell it like it is, Jane!
What a beautiful painting! And I love that quote. There really is no enjoyment like reading. :)
The painting is so lovely and I agree 100% with Austen's quote. :)
So true! And nice picture- has that classical Victorian feel.
That's so lovely! As usual, you manage to find the best paintings (er, their photos). ~Lex
Nice picture. And love the quote!
I love this picture. Makes me wonder what she's reading? Could it be The Secret Garden or maybe some Grimm fairy tales!
I love this picture so much! I would love to hang this one in my reading nook. My daughter loves to read there.
So sweet, and calming...
So cute! Love the green! :)
This is really beautiful! Love this painting.
