I was enjoying the shadows in the living room, so I thought I would draw some books. I was trying to get myself to draw the shapes of the letters, but found that I kept just wanting to write the words. Those two ART words, should be identical.
The second picture was a little tricky. We have this piece of wall that Manien retrieved when her dad was renovating the house. It has two different layers of wallpaper on it, really old stuff that looks almost hand-painted. At least hand-printed I would imagine, and then they had been painted over, and also some kind of screen base is poking out, as well as bare wood. So my faithful brush pen was maybe not the best tool for getting all these subtle layers.
