Colour Town


 Something about tiny houses, all my favorite colors and simple shapes make me very happy. This painting was so much fun for me I want to do another on a larger canvas soon!

While I was painting Colour Town I listened to Never Let Me Go by Kazuo Ishiguro. I am new to Ishiguro's writing but so excited to have found him! My boyfriend was excited that I found him too, apparently Ishiguro's short stories are often published in the New Yorker of which Stacy (my boyfriend) reads often. Never Let Me Go is a surprising tale that I find myself unable to explain without spoiling anything for anyone who hasn't read it yet. All I can say is that Never Let Me Go reminded me slightly of A Brave New World but for reasons other than the plot or story line. If you haven't yet read any of Ishiguro for yourself you might want to give it a try, I know I will definitely be checking out another one of his books soon!
