Mrs Peartree’s old book shelf and books were once again the inspiration behind my latest painting, simply titled Book Shelf. Well, and the several email requests I received by individuals interested in more old book paintings played a little part as well.

So once again I felt like revisiting those old books, and paint something a little different than Old Books and Books of Old.

I decided on two rows of books, one a little more orderly than the other, introducing a few new titles from her collection.

Will there be another? Perhaps. I still see a painting based on the silver clasped book, and I’ve been thinking of the idea of having some books open, with pages falling out, perhaps?
