Passionate Art - Comment for a Chance to Win!
I come from a family of painters. My mother and sister are painters and I married a painter. Art is in my blood and though I can’t paint to save my life, it only seems natural to use my knowledge and appreciation of art in my writing.
Paintings are integral to the plot of Lady’s Wager. Charlotte and Edward, the heroine and hero, are both art enthusiasts and their love of art encourages their growing passion for each other. At different times in the story, the works of Thomas Gainsborough and the lesser-known John Smibert bring Charlotte and Edward together in unique and surprising ways. The paintings provide backstory, character motivation and even an element of suspense. It was fun to research these artists and to weave their works into the love story of Lady’s Wager.
