As a child, every Saturday at 10:00 A.M. I could be found, with lunch in-pail, in the children's section, of the library. Mrs. Lynch was the reader, and after a goodly size audience of kids had formed on the floor, she would read us stories in front of the fireplace until noon.

After the entertaining readings, I would sit on the library lawn with friends, eating lunch, talking, thinking, and dreaming about that wonderful morning, and hoping that next Saturday would come soon.

I picked as a backdrop Martha's Vineyard, which, I felt, was a colorful, quiet setting befitting the storyteller.

These fond memories all meshed together form my thinking behind this painting. -Charles Wysocki
