JH and her friends in Atlanta (my home town!) have met as a book club for 25 years!! I painted the books they voted the best of the lot.

(Also, this was my *500th* Ideal Bookshelf painting! woo!)

JH is based in Kabul, and commissioned this for her friend JA. Once I started pulling up the photos and realizing there were a few cool landscape spines (Little House, East of Eden, and The Great Game), I hunted through the Google/eBay to find more (the Penman and the Newby).

RLL is in school, and this is his ideal shelf. I love the mix of the super classics and contemporary classics. I also love that RLL has such a distinct color scheme, full of blues with a bit of heat.
