I loved the journey through Jennets paintings,and her inspiration for them.Her life and relationships were cleverly entwined with her creative inspiration,and both were equally interesting.
I don't know which I enjoyed most - the description of the painting, or the story line.
I could easily visualise every place and every scene, and though I don't know if this book would appeal to absolutely everyone, I loved it, because it put into words for me things I have observed myself, and gave me a greater understanding of modern art.
I haven't read about the author yet, but I'm thinking she must have a background in art, or a massive enthusiasm for art, and research.I will be reading her other books.
