Joie de Vivre: Reading
Inspired by simple pleasures and the exuberant enjoyment of life, what the French refer to as “ joie de vivre”.
This painting of the bear reading a book was among the first six painting in the series, created for a group show in a local gallery. Each painting featured something that brings me great joy. Reading (real books that you can hold in your hands and feel the paper beneath your fingertips) is an important part of my life. In our house, we are always in need of one more bookcase for our ever-growing collection.
