Night-time Reading

My wife was browsing through my website yesterday, it didn't take long before she started to exclaim, "where's the mole in the library?"
"What do you mean?" I replied.
"You know," then she gave me that look I only get from her when I'm being particularly dense. "The painting of the mole in a library, it's not on your blog."
"Isn't it?"
"Well, I can't find it"
"Oh, I thought I'd posted that already." I'd better point out I have a notoriously bad memory.
"You'd better do it before you forget - again."
"Yes dear" 

Surely not many married couples can have this conversation, normally it's where are the car keys, or have you put the bin out. However I'm glad Suzanne spotted my lackadaisical approach to blogging, so after a lengthy build up here is that mole in a library painting

Thanks for sharing. Like all of your work this is outstanding. I love the glow from the lantern, the wood, the books, the marble arch on the right hand side, indeed everything about it. You are incredibly skilled. I love your work. Celia

Fantastic painting...At first I thought it was Moley from The Wind in the Willows, by Kenneth Graham.

Thanks both of you. In a way that is Mole from 'The Wind In The Willows', probably picking a book to read while staying over at Toad Hall.
