Dad's 4th Grade Reader

My dad gave me his 4th grade reader.  I love the look of old books, and I wanted to include this one in a painting.

My original plan was to stick a white rose in that vase, but I decided instead to feature this more visually interesting oakleaf hydrangea blossom that I borrowed from my landscaping.  Pretty sure that was a good call.

The dark blue vase was sculpted by my son, when he was a kid, at the Broad Ripple Art Fair.  A friend of ours painted and fired it for us.  I love that thalo blue/green color!
