Read full description of the books:



I bought this book for my wife some years ago. She was an artist and very talented. Near the end of her life one of the subjects she was beginning to work with was "fantasy subjects" including faeries. She was (as I said above) very talented and throughout her life as she would pick up different techniques and concentrate on different subjects she would expand her "catalog" so to speak. She was able it seemed to study a new type or style and within a few attempts she'd have captured it. She did landscapes, seascapes, English gardens, still-lifes (I think since the painting is a "still-life" the plural would be "still-lifes" rather than "still-lives") and did them at different times in different styles so to speak...modern to primitive. She went through a very long period of time doing florals. She took commissions from people to paint everything from their houses to their pets. As I said only a few years ago she was becoming interested in more fantastic subjects. She enjoyed books of art work and as she would find new interests I'd use that as a key or indicator for her next Christmas or birthday gift. This book I bought her not too long ago and it reminds me of her. She past August 1, 2009.

There may be books of better paintings but this one and a few others will as long as I'm able to manage it stay on my shelf.
