Regency lady on a book page

Regency costume painting
Regency costume lady painted in acrylics on a book page torn from Jane Austen’s “Emma”. Some would call this “wasting”, I call it “enjoying a book, but not in a reading kind of way”.

It was cleaning day today. Stuff needed dusting. Especially the piles and piles books my boyfriend owns. Came across this tatty copy of “Emma” by Jane Austen. I was about to throw it away, but then it hit me. How’s about painting a cute regency lady? With the hat, the floaty dress and the flowers. On a book page.

  1. It’s not “wasting” at all. An original painting certainly has far more value than a mass-produced paperback. Sometimes I feel like my materials are too “nice” to use…isn’t that sad? Artist neurosis, I guess. It’s a lovely painting and a great idea! 🙂

  2. Such a sweet painting, and it definitely looks like a different style of yours! I like it. 🙂 Keep up the amazing work lovely!

    And don’t feel bad about the book, I do that too! 🙂
