In The Book Store

book store, cafe, coffee shop, family portraits, reading, sister
In the century of Kindle and Internet it is so nice sometime to find an interesting book and crash in the book store cafe reading it. Like in good old days! I ended up with a pretty significant collection of Art Books at my house that way 🙂 The moment what you see on this painting is when my sister and I had a lovely time at Barnes & Noble book store in Walnut Creek California this Summer. Yes this is my Baby Sister.
She visited us for three months. We had such a great time together. She just left 23 hours ago but already miss her. Now I have my sister with me all the time 😉

  1. What a wonderful time you must have had when she was visiting. It's always sad to see loved ones move on but you've put together a wonderful painting to remember the visit by.

    Blessings!

  2. Irina,

    This is a fabulous painting. I don't know what your sister looks like so can't say if the likeness is there, but this definitely looks like a real person.

    I love the play of light and shadow.

    Wonderful!

    xoxo

  3. Wonderfully intimate and [yes] bookish portrait. Both you and your sister have such strong, intelligent faces judging from the portraits on your site [no, I am not being a sycophant – love that word]

  4. Hi Vicki,
    The painting turned around a little skinnier that she is (although she is not a full body gal, I have to admit) .. but when she saw the painting this morning she liked it alot 🙂
    Thanks so much for your comment.
    Irina
