Dr. Seuss said…“The more you read, the more things you’ll know. The more that you learn, the more places you’ll go.” This quote was in my thoughts when I created this old woman reading by candlelight for art challenge group, TAKE A WORD (

Their theme wasn’t READING…it was CANDLELIGHT. Let it be said that I’ll read by whatever light is available, but candlelight is so restful to the eyes, isn’t it…and more romantic and atmospheric as well. I guess I had my Nana in mind when I created this…she loved to read! That’s probably where I got my love for reading and learning. I’ve been doing quite a bit of reading while sheltering at home…have you?

Stay well, safe and cautious. That’s it for this posting…short and sweet. See you next time?

Big Hugs, abbyj

I'm a wife, a Mom and a Doodleloo (the name my grandchildren call me.) I'm retired, but have always been a communicator, art and music lover, an adventure traveler, reader and lately, a digital artist. I was a TV producer of documentaries and features for 25 years. Married to my best friend, we just celebrated our 55th wedding anniversary. I had a blog on another platform for 10 years...want to be more mobile so switched to WordPress. Hope you'll join me in my magazine formatted blog. See you soon...

  1. I’m sad to say I spend too much time at the computer and not enough reading any more. I love your art, and the reading by candlelight!
