Have I mentioned that my husband is an intellectual? He is. He is currently in his 8th year of higher education. And to be honest...there's no end in sight. But so far his higher education has taken us very exciting places like Boston, Belgium, and soon The Netherlands and Italy.
So, what do intellectuals love more than anything? Books! And my husband is no exception. This, for example, is a photo of when we were getting ready to pack up our last apartment. You should know that this is only the "not pretty" books (there are many pretty ones) and they are all in categorized piles.
So in honor of my husband, I created this painting (it's of the pretty books):
I am a pretty big fan of how the gold/yellow paint made the books feel antique-like. The colors also very much remind me of a gentlemen's library that you should go to drink cognac and smoke pipes while wearing cardigans...oh, and read, of course.
This painting is titled Books, but it might be more appropriately named Ode to Husband.
