"Rosemary Reading" *SOLD*
8" x 8"
Oil on Board
As I thought about what to paint for "R", I remembered Karin Jurick's "reader" paintings and thought that might be fun to try - especially since we have in Montgomery one of the best bookstores in the state. Capitol Book & News is a local treasure and always has been....
at least since 1950 when it opened!
So - tying in with my "All Things Southern" feature which I have posted on Wednesdays for the past few months, I thought it would be a great post to mention our Southern literary heritage. William Faulkner, Eudora Welty, Harper Lee, Margaret Mitchell, Truman Capote, Tennessee Williams, Flannery O'Connor...and more and more and more Southern writers who have written classics. Capitol Books & News is our go-to store for Southern literature and a whole lot more!
What happens when your family has one of the oldest, best bookstores in town? You develop an early love of reading and an early knack for reading! I got to photograph this precious little reader yesterday at the bookstore in her "bookstore dress", as she called it, reading to her stuffed animal, Jelly Cat (hope I spelled Jelly Cat right!).
As always, thanks for looking!
