For Lali


Sometime ago, I completed a painting of my daughter writing( Posted 9-28-07.) Lali posted the painting on her blog. We keep in touch via our blogs, and vow one day to meet for coffee. On her post of September 21 2008 she posted a photograph that she took. I was struck by the light bouncing around everywhere, and the two figures both reading. So much intrigue in one photo. Perhaps they are reading the same book? Same chapter? Should they meet? In the painting much of the original photo was cropped to focus on the people and sunlight. A visit to Lali's blog is quite an experience even if you do not know French. Lali writes beautifully, and the paintings and photo's are magnificent. Many thanks to Lali for allowing me to use her photo for a reference and yes, one day we shall meet for coffee!

Linda,
you translated into painting the photograph with the perfect colors, the perfect light...
and I just love the story that the two readers might be reading the same book, the same chapter, the same page...
And it's your daughter who wants to become a writer?
A million thanks, until our coffee and chat!
