What I would do with a spare $525

So it's probably a really good thing I don't have it! :)

I am SO DROOLING over this. . . .

Just found out a little more about it:

A Place of Her Own  by artist James Christensen available from Snow Goose Gallery.

"I wanted to create a retreat, a secluded little nook filled with art and books where a woman could really get away from it all. Here, the tension melts away as lilting strains of lute music drift across the overstuffed cushions. The objects in the room represent the things that I believe are important to a full and satisfying life: Rembrandt's painting 'Aristotle Contemplating the Bust of Homer' (culture and the arts); the medieval Unicorn Tapestries (magic and belief); maps (curiosity and exploration); sheet music (music and creativity) and the books, treasures which represent the collected wisdom of the ages. Take a close look at the books - there's one of my very favorite new books buried in there somewhere!" - James Christensen.

Canvases released 2008.

Forget the painting...I just want that little nook for myself! How fun to have your own little room just for reading and all your favorite things!

What a beautiful, interesting, intriguing painting! Reminds me of our oldest daughter except she has blonde hair. Thanks for sharing!

Oh, if I have ever coveted, it has probably also been James Christensen's artwork. What beauty---in detail, in his subjects, etc, etc. Some day we'll both be displaying our fine taste in art and literature, of course, in our very own vast libraries, won't we :)
