Reading

Emma loves this Fragonard painting of a young girl reading so I thought I’d play with it in Photoshop and see what happened. Well, nothing much did. I just couldn’t seem to make a connection with the image despite all my tinkering in Photoshop with various filters and layer effects.
While I know Fragonard was painting in the 18th century, it’s hard to understand how anyone anytime could be comfortable reading in a gown and an updo. I don’t find sitting the most comfortable position for reading either. I’d rather stretch out on a sofa or read propped up by pillows in bed. Guess that’s why I’ve downloaded a couple of good ebooks and haven’t bothered to read them.
