The painting speaks of many things. This painting intrigued me ! I didn’t know the artist so I went on a search to read all I could find on him. He and 2 brothers were all artists. I wound up on a Pinterest page that was titled Maris’s name..(?) For past hour and half I looked at every image there. An assortment of artists were Pinned. I was surprised at how many sewing images there were, counted about a dozen. But I was even more surprised at how many artists painted pictures of people reading….all age people too. Again, Lori has precipitated my learning new things.Thank you.. Comments are closed.
