of love and other paintings

Novel interior Painting
Novel used: Del amor y otros Demonios (Of love and other demons) by Gabriel García Márquez

So we basically had to imagine a room from a novel, do the layout, and make a painting with it. I chose Sierva María's room for this since Garcia Marquéz describes it so well. Seriously, reading that part makes you wish that room belonged to you! Probably my painting doesnt give the same feeling, but since it is based on the colonial era in Colombia, I learned a ton of stuff doing it.
 I learned new words, history, LAYOUT, and experimented with some painting techniques.
I wonder what the author of the book would say about it, I'll see if I can contact him and get his opinion :)
