I love being a part of this blog. Thank you, Lori. i had no idea, until your series, that so many painters had chosen women sewing as their subject. Amazing. This one is lovely and serene even with so many colors of the rainbow..I am enjoying it ! Thanks.. I had no idea either. I keep thinking I will have to change the series, but for now I keep finding more and more “seamstresses in fine art”. I’m Danish and she looks like my family members–who all sew– Thank you, Lori. I love your selections of seamstresses. I too, had no idea there were so many artists who had chosen women (and girls) sewing. I love them all. The light streaming in the window is so lovely and inviting. And look at her little hand crank machine. Your blog brings such joy to so many! Thank you for sharing your optimism and insights–as well as your amazing talents. Thank you, Helen. That is music to my ears! What if the electricity went out? Wouldn’t having a hand crank or treadle model be just the thing to keep us going? The art and the new thoughts that came from it were wonderful. Keep up the good work. Beautiful! I did not know this painter. And my reflection is that fishermen’s wives had access to sewing machines at the time. Interesting! Comments are closed.
