Are you a fan of His Dark Materials? I really enjoyed the series. My favourite is Northern Lights, followed by The Subtle Knife. The imagination and storytelling is stunning. The last book of the trilogy, The Amber Spyglass disappointed me and it was my least favourite. I felt so many parts (and characters) in the book were unnecessary and the story wasn’t as great as the first two. AND we never really get a proper explanation about Dust even in the third book, which is why I was super excited about this year’s release, The Book of Dust.
The Book of Dust holds your attention and is written in a way that makes you keep your fingers crossed for the young boy, Malcolm who is on a mission. I had a problem with him trusting a certain person early on in the book. This plot point kept nagging me since I didn’t know why he wasn’t as careful with her (she is nice though) as with the others. And this friendship drives the story forward too. Other than that, I loved the read. Perfect world of daemons to indulge in, great characters and good storytelling. I would have loved to know more about ‘Dust’ (no answers in this one either inspite or the title). But hey! the next two books might answer that.

Hey friends! I decided to try something new this week, I’ve never painted a desert scene like this before so I repainted an old canvas of mine. If you’d like to learn how to paint a starry night sky like this, see my YouTube video, link in my bio! Also, I had fun making this music to match this piece, hope you’ll enjoy it! Take care & God bless ❤️
Painting by @jeff.britton at Portraiture Exhibition curated by Shane Guffogg. Jeff Britton’s Self-Portrait in the Bathroom Mirror is a plein-air self-portrait standing in front of what was the only mirror at his disposal during his 4-year stay in an old warehouse turned artist studio in downtown LA. The painting bears witness to the artist painting in real time from life, staring at himself as he ultimately stares back at us.
See more of Jeff’s paintings today @occcart gallery hours, 12 to 5pm
