I love the idea of a BookBench, and am delighted to have had a design chosen for inclusion in the Sitting With Jane trail. My design “Look Upon Verdure” incorporates two quotations of Jane Austen, illustrating her love of Nature. Jane invites us to pause in our hectic modern lifestyles, sit with her on a bench and rest our eyes on nature, gardens and greenery:
“To sit in the shade on a fine day, and look upon verdure, is the most perfect refreshment.” (Jane Austen, Mansfield Park)
I will paint my design onto the blank BookBench during a two day live speed-painting demonstration at Festival Place in Basingstoke town centre on Tuesday 28th and Wednesday 1st March 2017. I welcome a live audience while I paint, so don’t be shy: drop by, ask questions, and be inspired!” said Lois.
