Old books are fascinating in themselves and also beautiful as objects. I have painted books several times, and this time I have added a little South American gourd with lovely fish decorations, which blends in well with the colours of the books.

This soft pastel still life has a limited range of hues, but set against the black background these hues come to life and capture one’s attention, even from a distance.

The picture has a white mount and a black frame.
