Wow! That painting!
Ruth Lazkoz

It has been an education looking for paintings to fit these stories. In studying these images and imagining the stories behind them I feel the need to make sure the writing rises to their level. They serve then as illustration and inspiration for beauty, for making the art in the story all it can be, for taking care with every word the way care was given in every brushstroke. An added bonus is the feeling of the painter’s eyes so closely following every curve and plane.
