This is a sweeeet painting. reminds me of my great gramma from the Netherlands, They lived in Friesland. She wore all black and one of those traditional Friesian lace hats. This sweet lady is sitting in her comfy chair 🙂 Wouldn’t it be sweet to be able to see the finished piece she’s working on? I like everything about it! The way the light falls is nice and soothing and the glow of the whites is energizing. The painting is comforting! Did you notice she’s hardly looking down at her work. Those ladies, like my grandma, were so skilled they sew, knit, crochet or embroidery without constantly looking at their work. Maybe I’ll be that good someday (but I doubt it)! JP Gramma is not a sweet feminine older lady to me. She is bvery mannish looking to me.. Sorry Comments are closed.
