We all have a lady in our lives who devours books faster than the speed of light. This was made by one of those ladies. And what better way to charm a serious bibliophile than with a gift that celebrates their passion for reading? This piece is an original work of art, painted with mixed media on textured canvas paper. It comes with a certificate of provenance from the artist.

“The reading of all good books is like conversation with the finest (people) of the past centuries.”
– Descartes

The woman depicted here is reading “A Book of Courtesy” and “The Nature and Destiny of Man.”
The wallpaper in the background shows candles burning and dripping, and there are fangs in this woman’s chest (which is really a gaping monster’s mouth), devouring books like candy.

The drawing based on this ink and watercolor painting is also available, here.
