A Break in the Action

I'm taking a moment off from painting to smile at yet another very satisfying bookmark-to-book pairing. Pleases me every single time I see it.

Part of the fun is the serendipity of these bookmark-to-book match-ups. I don't paint with a book in mind; I paint using paints that are cluttering my palette.

In this case, I played with complementary colors, set the painting aside to dry, added it to my growing collection of paper prayers, then waited to see what book it would first saddle up and ride. It took off at a gallop!



  1. Thanks! Can't tell you how much I'm enjoying my handpainted bookmarks. They are a gift every time I go to whatever book(s) I've got going and open up to read, and I read often : )

  2. What a great idea! I can picture the grandchildren loving book marks for their books. Just sayin'...

  3. Thanks, Sheila. I know you're a bookmark gal yourself : )
