It's Monday! What Are You Reading? (February 10): 02/10/20
I've made progress in my paintbrushes painting. It's based off a sketch I did last October. I hope to finish it this week.

Oh, I love the colors on the paintbrush picture. You have too many good books on your list for me to mention this week, but I hope you enjoy all of them.
Comment #2: Monday, February 10, 2020 at 20:50:00
Thank you. It's a little weird painting a painting of a painting. The cloudy background under the paintbrushes was originally "Anticipation" which I painted in October.

Great paintings as always. i found Waiting for Tom Hanks just okay. But I am not a big rom com reader.
Comment #4: Monday, February 10, 2020 at 20:53:00
I don't read many romances of any sort but Waiting for Tom Hanks just tickled my fancy. I'm enjoying it so far.

Your paintings are beautiful. I especially love the tulip and the acorn. I saw a peony yesterday here in Paris that I instantly found myself wanting to paint. I may do it today. I took a photo so that I can try today or when I get home.
When I saw that you are reading Lu it reminded me that I still have Jason Reynolds' latest book at home. I need to put it at the top of the pile when I get back to my house.
Have a lovely week.

The tulip and acorn are both sketches. They will eventually become paintings. I also work from photos for my paintings, but I find the Copic marker sketches help me work out colors and tones before I commit myself to the time and energy of making a painting.
Jason Reynolds is so prolific, it's hard to keep up with him. By most recent do you mean Look Both Ways or do you have an ARC of Stamped?

I love the paint brushes and the pumpkins. Have a great week!
Comment #8: Monday, February 10, 2020 at 21:05:00
Thank you. I'm looking forward to painting the pumpkins at a future date.

I love the paintings... and I'm curious about Death By Pumpkin Spice.
Enjoy your week, and thanks for visiting my blog.
Comment #10: Monday, February 10, 2020 at 21:07:00
Thank you. Death by Pumpkin Spice is a locked room mystery set during a Halloween party. It was a fun book to listen to.

I love all your drawings, especially the turkey :)
Your books look good, I may add a few to my list.
Comment #12: Monday, February 10, 2020 at 21:09:00
The turkey was fun to draw.
Comment #13: Monday, February 10, 2020 at 12:39:34
Great looking art and nice looking books too. I also recently read The Hand on the Wall and loved it. Come see my week here. Happy reading!
Comment #14: Monday, February 10, 2020 at 21:10:00
I enjoyed The Hand on the Wall too. I'll be reviewing it soon.
Comment #15: Monday, February 10, 2020 at 15:57:38
Such great colors in all your paintings, especially the paintbrushes one. Beautiful job on all of them.
Waiting for Tom Hanks looks like a fun book. Enjoy!
Comment #16: Monday, February 10, 2020 at 21:15:00
Except for the paintbrushes, the other pieces are pen sketches. I plan to use the drawings for inspiration for future paintings. I use the markers to figure out colors and layout.
I'm a few chapters into Waiting for Tom Hanks and I'm enjoying it so far.
Comment #17: Monday, February 10, 2020 at 16:08:37
I love the pic of the young turkey - you draw birds beautifully, Sarah! Have another great reading week:)
Comment #18: Monday, February 10, 2020 at 21:21:00
Thank you. I like drawing and painting birds. Turkeys are especially entertaining.
Comment #19: Monday, February 10, 2020 at 17:57:30
I love the paintbrushes painting!
Waiting for Tom Hanks sounds adorable!
Comment #20: Monday, February 10, 2020 at 21:23:00
Thank you. I'm almost done with the paintbrushes. Waiting for Tom Hanks is good so far.
Comment #21: Monday, February 10, 2020 at 22:05:29
Wow! You are an incredible artist!! There a couple books on your list that I’ve been wanting to read! Mostly Don’t read the comments. Glad I discovered your blog :)
Comment #22: Monday, February 10, 2020 at 21:25:00
Don't Read the Comments was a good read. The review is here if you're curious.
Comment #23: Monday, February 10, 2020 at 22:20:43
I've been seeing The Hand on the Wall all over and I really need to get to that - I've only read the first one.
Hope you have a great week ahead!
Comment #24: Monday, February 10, 2020 at 21:28:00
You should read the Vanishing Stair before The Hand on the Wall. The series comes to a satisfying conclusion.

love your artwork!! Especially that turkey....
Comment #26: Monday, February 10, 2020 at 21:31:00
Thank you. The turkey is the popular one this week.
Comment #27: Tuesday, February 11, 2020 at 17:35:28
Your paintbrushes painting is gorgeous, Sarah. What do you think of Waiting for Tom Hanks? I've been curious about that one, but keep hearing mixed reviews. Don't Read the Comments is one I would like to read. I hope you have a great week and enjoy your reading!
Comment #28: Monday, February 16, 2020 at 16:54:00
Thank you, re the painting. Waiting for Tom Hanks, a bit like This Is What Happy Looks Like by Jennifer E. Smith but with a ton of Nora Ephron worship. I'm not really a fan of her films, so that part wasn't a bonus for me.
Comment #29: Tuesday, February 11, 2020 at 19:00:31
I like your paintings! I wish I could do that too! I love Giant Days, it's been some time since I read a volume, though. I should change that.
Have a wonderful week!
Comment #30: Monday, February 16, 2020 at 17:36:00
Like any skill, it takes practice and dedication. If you want to paint or draw, start painting or drawing. Do it for fun. Giant Days continues to be fun.
