Word Traveler

12 x 16, oil on canvas
"There is no frigate like a book
to take us lands away,
Nor any coursers like a page
of prancing poetry.
This traverse may the poorest take
Without oppress of toll;
How frugal is the chariot
that bears a human soul!
Emily Dickinson

The leather case if perfect ... it looks used and loved, well cared for. Nice composition.

Oh, the stories that could be told if that case could talk! Love how you made it come to life, Faye.

great painting and great post.
....and I LOVE the public libraries which to me are the most wonderful resource we all have!
