I have been working on new drawings and devling into my late 40s Montgomery Wards catolog to cull out wardrobe details. I still want to paint women with books in their hands for the reminder of the power that books have to open up my life to deeper meaning and greater connections. I prefer to work with these old catologs because they give me a connection with the past. The old photos remind me that my story began before I was born and will continue long after I die.
I was thinking of Balthus when I was working on this one and added the cat in his memory. We have two cats that live with us in our house. They do a lot to make our rooms extra cozy with their wise lounging.
