Reading Time

As every other childhood, mine had a good dose of reading Dr.Seuss books so when asked to paint something in tribute to Dr.Seuss, the joy of reading a book developed in my head. Not an iPad or Kindle. Those are great as well. I love my iPad but there's something special about sitting with a nice book that has real pages and doesn't need electricity.

In celebration of Dr.Seuss' birthday Nucleus Gallery is having a Dr.Seuss gallery show tomorrow. Please contact info@gallerynucleus.com for inquiries.

I could never read using a Kindle or iPad. I get bored reading with technology. I can always sit down with a real book though. :)

Books are pretty awesome! I especially like the ones with thick, grainy, yellowish pages. But most of the time I find myself listening to audiobooks instead as I can do that while I paint/draw

And you're absolutely right that reading a book just feels more special than reading on a digital device.

Nothing beats turning a page of a book or smelling the scent of old and new books. No electronic ebook will ever capture that one. <3
