Books, painted from life from my book collection. This was one that literally consumed my life for a few months. I could get to doing about 4-5 books a day, getting up at 5am so that I could paint only using natural light coming in through my window. I painted each by holding the book in my hand, and you can see some marks or shadows where my thumb was holding them. Oil on canvas.
