Turin, Italy - 15

6 January 2014 - Turin, Italy
12" x 16", acrylic on canvas
I painted this one while listening to Ngaio Marsh's Death and the Dancing Footman.  I still haven't gotten to the end of it.  It'll have to wait until I continue on with the next painting (which I just started up).  The setting for Death and the Dancing Footman is pretty "classic", in an English country manor, involving a collection of characters all antagonistic to each other, though the murder doesn't happen until quite a bit into the book, and then Inspector Alleyn doesn't make his appearance until after the murder.

I seem to be on something of a mystery reading tear right now; I've been simultaneously reading Elizabeth Daly's Henry Gamadge mysteries, ones which, unlike Marsh's books, I haven't read already.  I've managed to keep the plots separate (mostly).  I just finished The Book of the Crime, and, before that, The Book of the Lion, and now am starting up And Dangerous to Know.  I've been really enjoying her books.  I don't think I'll be able to stop until I get through all of them.
