You’re sitting there writing. You look up. And you see this.
“This” is the real deal: an inspired, inspiring and whimsical work by a professional artist with a thing for writing and writers. Because she does that, too.
I ran across Barbara Rudolph at an art show, and of course when I saw this image I stopped dead in my tracks. Turns out Stephanie Meyer had been by, too, and bought some of her work. As had many others, many of whom, I’d guess, were writers.
You can acquire a reproduction of this painting for yourself, by the way. You don’t have to be Stephanie Meyer to afford it — unless you want the original, which is available — but then again, this isn’t a poster from Target, either.
Barbara was kind enough to allow me to display this for your enjoyment. Check out her website HERE… and her blog HERE. She has several other book-themed pieces that incorporate that little literary (and literally) singing bird, metaphor and all.
Happy Easter to all! May your stories all sing, and may somebody tweet them when they do.
