“In Her Room.” My BETTER WORLDS Art Book: Paper and PDF.

I finished another painting recently.


“In Her Room,” oil on canvas, September, 2013, 22” x 22”. Click for a larger version of the painting.

This is a painting of our bedroom, showing my wife’s mirror and some of the things on her dressing-table. That painting on the left is by her, it’s called Kate Croy. I got the idea for the painting when I was coming into our room, and it was dark, and the hall-light behind me was on, haloing my silhouette in light, and I saw myself in the mirror. I like the little objects on the dressing-table, they’re like symbolic icons in a medieval portrait. That green shape is a bridge between two realities.

I put together a revised 2013 edition of my art book, Better Worlds. The book includes high-quality images, and a descriptive catalog of my paintings. {And I revised the book yet again in early January, 2014.}

You can access the book in two ways. First of all, you can buy it as a quality paperback. This high-quality art book sells for well under the list price of $25.

I’ve also made a free and lightweight PDF file. This small 2K file includes all the book’s text, that is, the picture-by-picture catalog commentary, but with only small thumbnails of the paintings.

And, as always, you can browse large images of my paintings on my paintings page.

Enjoy.

    Mr. Rucker, I’ve been a fan of you’re for a few years now. Spaceland was the first book of yours I read. I’v bought Postsingular and its sequel at a Chapters, here in canada. It’s been hard to find the newer books in stores, like Turing & Burroughs and Jim and The Flims. Are your newer works available in stores like Barnes&Nobles and Chapters etc? I did read one entry where you said you were having trouble getting them released by publishers. I know they’re available from your site. Are they also available in big retail stores?
